Poured from bottle into a pint glass
Appearance- the beer pours a very lightly hazed lighter golden amber color with a billowy white head of three finger height. The head has a pretty nice level of retention, slowly fading over time to leave a lighter level of foamy lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma of the brew is heaviest of a wheaty and yeasty smell mixed with a lighter showing of a light fruit smell of peach and a bit of pear. Along with these smells comes some lighter notes of spice and a little bit of coriander and some clove.
Taste – The taste begins with a rather nice flavor of a wheat bread taste that contains a rather decent sum of a sweeter fruit flavors of peach and apricot. As the taste advances the wheat peach and apricot all hold, while a little bit of a grassy and hay flavor start to develop more and more. Along with these tastes comes some flavors of a light yeast and a little bit of spice, which in the end, leave a rather fruity and sweet, but very pleasant, wheat bready taste to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the brew is on the slightly thicker and chewier side for an only 5.4 % abv brew with a carbonation level that is on the lower side. For the style and the sweeter wheaty flavors the feel is really quite nice, with it creating a rather easy drinking and flavorful weizen.
Overall – This is one weizen I actually rather like, but one I would likely enjoy on the occasion that I am in the mood for something with a bit more fruity flavor (which I think I am in for right now.) It is sweeter and slightly more wheaty, with a lower spice profile, but even with that said, more purist style weizen drinkers, it is very approachable and tasty. So…. Give it a go!

Picked up a single bottle at John’s Marketplace in Portland, Oregon. Pours a hazy orangish-amber brew with a creamy white head that slowly dissolves to a film layer and ring. Aroma is light with wheat malt, mild citrus zest, some yeast and a touch of grassy hops. Taste is medium bodied, light carbonated with flavors of sour grape, dry spice, and some aged yeast. Finish is slightly metalic, balanced and then a slight sour fruit aftertaste.
