3.65/5  rDev +2.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Pulpy, completely opaque yellow. Looks like grapefruit juice.... a tad odd.

Faint banana and clove... a bit of citrus. Rich, yet light. My only desire is that it was a bit more pungent.

Something in the flavour is a bit off. Lots of banana, but the aftertaste is a bit coppery and corn-y. The copper becomes a bit less noticeable as the brew warms, but the corn flavour is still there.

Light and crisp mouthfeel... maybe a bit too much carbonation.

Too much carbonation to be a quaffer... still, certainly not bad.

Serving type: on-tap

Poured from growler a bright pale golden hazed out beauty with 2 inches of fluffy white head with minamal lacing.

Nice bready aroma with a hint of banana & clove. Soft yeasty aromas pull it all together.

Sweet bready yeasty soft sourness that goes well together.

Man o man, this is so soft on the palate, how could anyone be offended by this medium light bodied beer. Spot on carbonation as well, well played foothills.

I find this to be one helluva hefe, drink up for it is only a seasonal.

Growler pour, from a keg that was filled two days prior. A great treat from the folks at Foothills and Green's on Piney Grove Road. Kudos for a great 1 Apr 2010 offering!

Appearance - Light yellow coloring with a good two-finger head forming upon the initial pour. Deep haze (i.e. a Hefe) with a light carbonation feeding the thin ring that retained.

Smell - Nice fresh banana and clove aroma. Crisp yeast nose as well. Somewhat muted, but inviting.

Taste - Light, tart and crisp. Just what you want from your Hefe. Moderate spice middle gives it some depth.

Mouthfeel - This ain't no stout so review it as per the style. Carbonation is a bit light, but I enjoy the fact that it is tongue-coating in the opening and middle. The crisp finish allows for a bit of cleansing.

Drinkability - Nicely done Foothills. Great offering fresh. I would be intersted to see what "legs" this sexy offering has.

Put this on tap at home as my wife was looking for a good hefe. Appearance was orange with plenty of head and good lacing. Smells of banana and clove with a hint of citrus. Much to my suprise, tastes like a traditional German hefe. Very fresh with a good malt presence. Very drinkable and probably the best NC Hefe I've had to date.

The beer was served on-tap at the Foothills brewpub.

A-The beer was served with a lacy ring on the pint glass but had little head. The beer itself was a hazy light gold color.

S-There was a clove smell initially that evolved into a rubber/plastic like smell. There was a slight bubblegum aroma persisitant throughout the time it took to drink the pint.

T-There was little to no malt sweetness with a slight grainy tast and a bubblegum like flavor.

M-The hefeweizen had a lighter body with lower carbonation rate than most wheat beers.

O-The beer is a solid example of the style but lacks in character. It is a drinkable session style beer though.

3.3/5  rDev -7.6%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Serving: 8oz Sample Glass (Part of a 9 Glass Sampler)

Apperance: Medium orange in color with a bit of haziness. Small amount of head, but I suspect it would have been little to none if I chose to incorporate the orange slice.

Aroma: Without the citrus, I received the full aroma of the wheat, which still wasn’t very overpowering, subtle if you will.

Taste: Weak, more of an “Americanized” wheat beer.

Mouthfeel: Light, watery for the most part. Goes down very easily though.

Drinkability: Overall, it’s a good summer wheat beer that is easy to drink on a hot day. The average beer drinker probably would enjoy this for the most part, even my girlfriend liked it (she doesn’t drink beer.)

Notes: I decided after review of the previous posts to go at this Hefe sans the orange slice.

Serving type: on-tap
