Cloudy and amber, like cider but not quite so cloudy. It is the most foamy beer I've run into in recent memory, if pouring in a glass be extremely careful and be patient as it settles -- or use a huge glass.
How's the nose (smell)? Sweet, spicy, fruity?
Somewhat metallic with some hoppy bitterness and a little citrus hiding in there
How does it taste? Malty? Hoppy? Fruity? Chalky?
There are enough hops in it for me to want to go ahead and finish the six pack rather than take it to a semi-friend's house as my donation to the beer supply. But it has the almost gross sweetness and strange cinnamon/nutmeg/allspice taste that come with wheat beers and I didn't get any indication that's what this was.
Is it full-bodied? Medium bodied? Weak? Clean?
It is full-bodied and has a pretty complex aftertaste so it isn't clean, but is not unpleasant.
Where did you buy it? How much was it?
Birmingham AL, $10 six pack bottles
What do you think overall? Would you buy it again?
Laughing Skull is a poor mix of heffeweisen and ale -- it isn't quite as sweet as the wheat beers and not quite as bitter as good ales. If you like wheat beers, then I think this is worth a try, but understand that it isn't billing itself as such. No, I will not be buying this beer again.
