Yum. Being the high-falouting beer snob that I am, I rocked up to a party with a bottle of this in my beer carrying device (alongside a few somewhat less exciting bottles of Budvar – a perfectly nice beer, but hardly exciting).
A Bavarian-style wheat beer, fans of Erdinger and Paulaner (as well as Franziskaner, which is available dead cheap in Morrisons and is a decent tipple) would definitely enjoy a bit of this American wheat beer – although, again, due to the cost of importing the buggers you’re going to pay a fair bit for 12 fluid ounces of this.
But, while the sun’s out and the weather’s warm, this is a very decent, if not exceptional drink. Brewed using German wheat and barley malts, it’s got those typical white/wheat flavours of banana and cloves with a good citrus punch too. It’s easy drinking too, and not too strong at 5.1%. The only problem is the finish, which is perhaps a little too bitter.
I’d write more, but my memory gets a little hazy…
