A big, puffy, egg-white-colored head rushes up the sides of the glass as I pour, thanks to a level of carbonation that nearly makes this look like soda pop. However, there's not a great deal of lacing. The beer goes from translucent yellow-orange to a muddy apricot after pouring the yeast, yet the viscosity itself remains thin. Peach and banana smells explode out of the bottle (nice!) but as soon as I put my nose to the glass they disappear (d'oh!). What happened? All that remains are hints of banana puree and canned peach syrup over a base of white-bready malt. Flavors are vaguely fruity and sweet: dried banana chips with just a dash of clove that resolves into a mealy, somewhat interesting, apple-jack aftertaste; but I think cantaloupe is the big thing here. Although the carbonation is forceful on the palate, the liquid itself is juicy, with very little body... this Weizen could use a good bit more Hefe. Serviceable rather than inspiring. Beer that approaches carbonated cantaloupe juice isn't always what I'm in the mood for, but come those hot, lazy summer afternoons, I'll be on my patio downing half a case of these puppies. Just like I do every year.

12oz. bottle poured into a hefe glass.
A- gorgeous dark gold with orange hints, cloudy, especially after the swirl and dump at the bottom of the bottle.
S- some yeasty sweetness, spices, mainly clove, hints of lemon peel.
T- some banana bread sweetness up front, then you get the hints of spice (cloves mainly), hints of bubble gum. Good flavors, I just wish the flavor intensity was ramped up.
M- Pretty heavy for a hefe, very active carbonation.
O- It's good, but is a notch below it's German counterparts.
