12oz bottle as part of the mixed LONGSHOT sixer, $6.49 @ Cheers, Carrollton, GA, USA. The LONGSHOT six-pack just made it to GA in the last few days. Notched label suggests Best Before June 2007.
Standard cloudy pour for an unfiltered wheat with some decent head (and retention). Mild carbonation amidst the pale, clouded gold color.
Aroma is a full-on artificial (kids juice) type fruit flavor that is VERY strong. Luckily this is not repeated in the taste which is much more subtle (just as well). The fruitiness reminds me of toothpaste or mouthwash, but having said that it drinks better. Very floral. I didn’t get much citrus or much (if any) hop bite. Quite bland, but a tart finish.
Very light, crisp and refreshing, this beer would come into its own in the summer months and I would hazrd a guess that it would be a big hit with the ladies. Drinkability is good, but it apart from the fruit it lacks much character. A simple beer that is its strength and pleasure. I am glad I tried it, but I can’t see myself seeking this out again.
