Served on-tap at Foothills Brewing in Winston-Salem, NC

A: Pours a hazy to cloudy pale yellow in color with some light to moderate amounts of visible carbonation and some faint hints of lemon yellow. The beer has a finger tall sudsy fizzy white head that fades rather quickly to a very thin film covering the majority of the surface of the beer with a couple of small thick film patches and a medium ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Light to moderate aromas of lemon/citrus, banana, clove, and wheat.

T: Upfront there is a light to moderate flavor of wheat and grainy malts. That is followed by light flavors of banana and clove with some slightly stronger flavors of lemon/citrus. Minimal amounts of bitterness are present.

M: Very light bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Relatively crisp.

O: This is a decent attempt at a hefeweizen but not in the same class as the major German ones. A little too subtle with the banana and clove while a touch too strong on the grainy malts.

On tap at World of Beers at North Hills

A - bright yellow; no head

S - faint lemon; cleanser

T - faint lemon, faint spice

M - crisp, very light

This is similar to a light beer that glows and has some faint citrus and lemon to it. It's rather forgettable. There are far better Hefeweizen's out there.
