Drake (13649) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 6, 2012
12 ounce bottle from the summer sampler. And somehow Magic Hat gets to be my 5200th rating. How’d that happen? Pours an almost murky orange color with a thin white head. Poor head retention. Aroma of wheat and berry-flavored Life Savors. The taste is wheat, citrus, banana, berries. Medium bodied and highly carbonated. I kinda like this beer, but that doesn’t mean its good.

Flavor is fruity esters and hops, light bitterness, coriander, spicy wheat malt and a sweet finish. Light body and medium carbonation.
