I have passed these beers by for months, I actually thought this was some kind of orange-soda alcohol drink. Upon a little R&D I found this brewery that doesn't advertise, bottle, or even make labels.Simply an orange can that says "5,o"at the bottom, it is described as Weizen
An aggressive pour yields a light fluffy head, rocky, froth slowly settles down revealing a light orange-yellow murky Weizen beer. The color is deep burnt orange, a light tan around the edges. Damn good looking Weiss, and from a can.
A musty grain note is first in the aromatics, followed by fruity orange esters, peppery spiciness, grains, sweet malt/fruit. The aromatics are a bit sweet, but suprisingly have a nice balance of fresh orange, citrus, musty grain, and a light pepperiness to balance. But it really is lacking that special little "pop" of fresh fruity-yeasty spiciness that makes the "greats" (Weihenstephan..Andechs) really good
Flavor is pleasant, but not the immediate-amazing suprise I was hoping for. The carbonation is actually very low, making the beer feel almost flat on the palate. Sweet citrus, grain, pepper, yeast, finishing with a sweet fruitiness that isn't unpleasant, but not the most biting, sharp Hefe I've had.
Mouthfeel again is on the low-end of carbonated, actually making it a bit difficult to pick out different delicate flavors. It becomes a bit one-note, beginning and ending with malty fruity sweetness.
This is not bad beer, but it isn't great either. A much needed boost in carbonation levels would take this no-label "rebel beer" into a hard-to-find cult classic. Punks and old rockers are usually the ones I see drinking this brew. Maybe because of the breweries no-label "rebellion" statement..or maybe because it's 39 cents...
