What better way to celebrate ~18 hours of post-St. Patty's snow completely melting during a sunny Saturday afternoon than with a half-litre of hoppy hefe?

A - Pour to a boot reveals a darkish orange beer with some haze and plenty of rising carbonation bubbles. An off-white head retains nicely.

S - Crackery wheat, slight banana, some caramel sweetness, apple and various light citrus fruit.

T - Flavors a little more poppin' here, a decent balance is struck between hefe and hoppy but neither comes off very strongly. Some more banana bread presence, grainy wheat, pale malt, herbal and earthy hops, sugar cookie, some grape, a little bit of vanilla.

M - Good biggish body with decent carbonation. Light bitterness with a somewhat dry finish. Pretty easy drinking.

O - I wouldn't mind drinking this anytime, though it's on the plain side and doesn't really deliver anything too special. The hefeweizen side is decent, the extra hops don't add a whole lot. Still pretty tasty.

Poured from the bottle into a wheat ale glass. Bottle date uncertain.

Classic amber body, red to brown, fairly opaque and some fine carbonation up on the rise, mostly of pin head sized bubbles but not excessive. Head comes up a little frothy settling with about three fingers of very light tan appearance, and clumping quite a bit with some good staying power. A dark weizen going on indeed.

Real nice soft and sweet aroma. Mild sensing brown sugar and a bit of mushy fruit. Large on the caramel action and coming out with even a touch of vanilla as well. Some tea like aromas round out as well interestingly with a sweet softness as well, very nice.

Palate comes a bit more subdued. Lighter malt body if a little wet. Some chalk like aftertaste but some of the classic chewy grain manages to come though. A very noticeable herbal to tea like bitterness on the finish but not overly large or excessive. Mixes well with some neutral grainy character, and bringing some more of that tea grass and herbality on on the palate.

Overall an interesting take, not a big ester brew either, kind of fun but not unfortuantely that remarkable but at least memorable.

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.
