4.5/5  rDev +33.5%

Pours a huge, dense, frothy head. Sweet malt aroma with a slightly tart, fruity character. Slightly pale, burnt umber color, hazy from yeast. Starts with a nice, rich maltiness with lots of yeastiness. The middle is more and more malt with a touch of hops.There is a toasted malt quality that almost lends a caramel flavor. There is a nice, lingering hop bitterness.

I really, really like this one. It's not as fruity as a Bavarian hefe. The balance of the malt and hops is pretty much sublime.

A: Pours a hazy amber with a fair amount of off-white head. The foam reduces to a solid blanket fairly quickly, but the blanket retains well and leaves lots of lacing.

S: A bit of wheat, but with lots of sweet malt and yeast.

T: Mildly sweet and somewhat grainy with a bit of wheat and yeast.

M: Medium creamy body, medium carbonation.

Overall, interesting, and pretty good. It's somewhere between a Belgian pale, a hefeweizen, and a cream ale. A decent hot day session beer.

This beer poured out as a amberish looking orange color with a thin head on top. The beer is cloudy like this style should be. The smell of the beer is fruity, very mellow though, nothing over the top. The taste of the beer I found to be very refreshing, It would probably taste even better on a hotter day. The mouthfeel of this beer was smooth, nicely carbonated and very drinkable. It went down very quick for me. Overall this beer is good, I enjoyed it, I would consider drinking it again some day.

This was served from the tap at The Old Toad in Rochester, NY. It arrived in a half sized snifter showing a pale, wheaty gold coloring. A one finger head of creamy white bubbles topped the beverage, showing okay retention to leave a ghostly film across the top. Crisp waves of lacing jetted down the sides of the glass. There was a thick haze to it, with no sediment. Carbonation appeared even. The nose gave big wheat, phenolic clove, vanilla coolness, bready banana esters, bitterness of green banana peel, citric rind, and fresh apple fruitiness. Our first impression was that there was nice apple sweetness to the flavoring that was almost as robust as the wheatiness of it. As we sipped, granny smith apples, chalky wheat, mineral, and bittered yeast started things off. The middle peaked with grassy hop bite, freshly cut grassiness, muddy wheat, mineral, and coin. The finish came with more bitterness of lemon rind and clovey phenols to tame the wet wheatiness throughout. The aftertaste breathed of aromatic apple sweetness, that same wheatiness, mild bite of sweet alcohols, biting chalk, musk, and baby powder. The body was medium, and the carbonation was active and frothy. There was nice slurp, cream, and sip to the mustache, while the mouth as left dripping wet, with no dryness. The abv was appropriate, and the beer drank easily.

Overall, what we enjoyed most about this brew was the light sweetness to the flavoring. While there was a nice malt and wheat to it, with all the necessary notes of a hefe, there were additions of fresh and fruity sweetness of apple. This gave a fresh twist. The nose was curiously like a wheat wine, with strong grape, booze, and wheaty coolness. That said, things get a bit redundant by the end of the glass, as the wheat that is there remains boxed out, only to lose the heartiness of flavoring that kept the beer flowing.
