4.08/5  rDev +1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

I always thought this was the classic hefeweizen. Not my favorite style, but I do drink it from time to time during the summer months. I'm sure I've reviewed others, but somehow I never got around to reviewing this one.

Anyway, it pours a cloudy dark yellow with orange overtones. Big, rocky, sticky white head. About what you'd expect from an authentic rendition of this style. Looks damn inviting in what Crate&Barrel classifies as a "pilsner glass," though it's closer to a real weizen glass.

Smells have all the classic hefe notes -- bubble gum, bananas, cloves. Nothing much else but there really shouldn't be. Maybe a bit of bready yeast notes as well.

The taste is well-anticipated by the smell. Again, bubble gum, bananas, cloves, a little bit of lemon and the slightest touch of German hops to provide some balancing contrast. Also some big juicy fruit in the finish. The wheat is more apparent in the taste than the smell.

Feels great in the mouth -- fairly light-bodied but still substantial. Ultra smooth without feeling flat. A real easy drinker, especially in warm weather. Definitely a refresher, but I'd probably want to switch to something else after my second because I find it a bit cloying after a while. That's true of all hefes for me.

Anyway, this rates as a big winner not because it's a personal favorite, but because it's the perfect rendition of the style. It's done better than any other I've ever had, other than Schneider Weisse and Weihenstephaner, which -- to be fair -- I've had on tap.

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.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

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.
