3.91/5  rDev -3.2%

Poured from an 11.2oz bottle with a best before date of 05/15; into a pint glass.
Appearance - a very hazy, overcast orange, with a creamy off-white head. Lacing is fair.
Smell - sweet banana bread and faint citrus.
Taste - more Hawaiian bread as opposed to the banana bread in the nose; lacking just enough flavor to keep from giving a 4, but a very nice hefeweizen nonetheless.
Feel - creamy feel upfront, which leads to a mild sweetness and then a tangy bitterness. Easy to drink and enough complexity to make it interesting!
Overall - some better options if you're seeking out a hefeweizen, but this is not one to overlook!

12oz bottle into a pilsner glass

A - Cloudy yellow / light orange. An almost merinque-thick head that stands well above the rim of the glass. It stays about 1/4" thick and leaves an impressive lace all the way up.

S - Rich, luxurious rising bread with an hint of banana. Just a faint and pleasant hint of spicy hops.

T - Rich bread dough and ripe bananas. Very well complimented by citrusy hops that become more spicy as the beer warms and a hint of cloves that also comes out more on warming. A bit more bitter than any other hefe I've tasted- and very enjoyable.

M - Full. Not really heavy- just definitely there. The carbonation is refreshing and just right for the style. It doesn't cloy or overwhelm.

O - What a great hefeweizen!!! This is the apex of the style. The other great German hefes I've tried each have their own brilliance- from more prominent esters to definitive cloviness, but this one just balances it all perfectly. Yet another beer that is better just at cellar temp.

4.09/5  rDev +1.2%

Close to two fingers of head, comprised mostly of microscopic bubbles, moderate retention, close to pure white in color, no lacing to speak of. Soft reddish tint to the orange-yellow base to the liquid, vague hazy quality, strong presence of fat, active bubbles, sits solidly in the glass. The nose explodes with banana and bubblegum notes, clove and star anise spice, lower peppery bite, hint of quinine and saline, curiously the wheat seems submerged, the mixed orange to lemon citrus lingers almost as long as the bubblegum. Medium-bodied, the creamy attack leads to a sterner, leaner mouth presence, the carbonation is front loaded and then dries out across the palate. The bubblegum, banana big time here too, blends into apricot, yellow apple notes. Clove, coriander breaks the surface and then gets shadowed by white grapefruit sourness. Squares itself up and strides from the mid-palate to the finish with determination. Nothing wimpy here, even with that bubblegum sweetness. Spice nips at your heels. This is easygoing and approachable and likely more to please crowds than an individual beer geek.

4.01/5  rDev -0.7%

Pours a hazy golden with a billowing, frothy cream head that dissipates slowly, leaving sticky lacing.

Coriander, clove, orange peel, tangerine, lemon, what, while pepper, and floral hops form the aroma. There's a hint of banana.

Flavor reveals peach, tangerine, and wheat at the forefront, with wheat and lightly bready malt forming the backbone, and coriander rounding the lightly dry finish. Citrus dominates, and thankfully, the typical banana and bubblegum notes are very subtle.

Body is moderate and slightly creamy, with moderate carbonation.

Glad to have a citrus-forward hefe. Not the most complex yeast esters, but a good fruity brew.
