UFO Solved

Well, I just solved a lot of my mysteries. When I went and checked out Beer Advocate’s entry about Harpoon’s UFO, I realized that it’s technically an American Pale Wheat Ale, not your standard German Hefeweizen, despite its name. Beer Advocate notes that in the American Pale Wheat Ale, “German Weizen flavors and aromas of banana esters and clove-like phenols will not be found.” Doh! well, therein lies the mystery. I was looking for those spice and fruits. What would we do with out you Beer Advocate?
