3.59/5 rDev -11.1%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5
Appearance: Pours unexpectedly clear, very light haze - large, fluffy, creamy head that sticks around for quite some time - leaves blobs of lacing - quite attractive
Smell: Definitely has the aromas of a traditional German Hefeweizen, but perhaps on the mellow side (not necessarily a bad thing) - moderately yeasty, with some nice banana esters, clove, and phenols - some pale malts and wheat, not as wheaty as some others of the style - again, on the mellow side overall
Taste: In a word, archetypical - this about as Hefeweizen-y as a Hefeweizen gets - yeasty flavors, with banana, clove, and phenols - lightly earthy - maybe a hint of light citrus - pale grains and some touches of wheat - finishes clean and refreshing
Mouthfeel: Light to medium body, nicely smooth thanks to the wheat, clean
Overall: Definitely better than the one with artificial wheat
This is a very good Hefeweizen. Nothing particularly stands out, however. It's just a well-rounded, easy to drink beer. It's not going to blow any minds, but it's worth a try.

Sampled last night on 7/21/14. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured into a "Cheers-Boston' handled glass stein.
Pours a hazy golden pour with a good 2- finger thick head that lasted a while. Left lots of lacing when sipped. Smells of wheat with sweet orange and spice. The taste was pretty much the same and on the sweet side. Very easy to drink and no bad aftertaste. Hefeweizens are all over the board and this one is one of the best!

3.95/5 rDev -2.2%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Poured a nice deep golden color with two fingers of fluffy white head. Quite nice in appearance and very true to form. Scents of clove-like phenols, banana-like esters, hints of bubblegum and some doughy, bready wheat malt. A good aroma that is true to style, though not standout. Flavor begins with a nice sweet banana flavor with hints of clove and grainy malt balancing. In the middle light bubblegum flavors join the banana and clove and add depth. Finish is semi-sweet, with notes of banana, clove, bubblegum and grainy malt. Aftertaste is grainy wheat malt and clove. A good, though basic hefeweizen flavor profile. Mouthfeel is medium-light bodied with high carbonation and a smooth, creamy feel. Quite pleasant and very true to style. Overall this is a good basic hefeweizen that hits the main notes of the style, though it doesn't do a great deal to standout. Still a nice beer and very refreshing in Summer.
Serving type: on-tap
