Honestly, I did not like this beer. I hear a lot of great things about Marin, but this beer was WAY too sweet for my palate. The alcohol is overpowering, and I'm not one to whine about 9.2% ABV; more like a sherry than beer. It's basically a hefe on steroids, hence the name. But why did they have to triple the f'ing sweetness factor?? It's got lots of wheat, lots of sweetness, lots of malts, and lots of alcohol burn in the finish. I'm not sure about most peeps out there, but I don't want my beers to taste like fortified wines...

Now I have to go out and try their IPA, hopefully they can redeem themselves after this one.
