Pours from a greenish-brown 12oz bottle into my hefe glass, a dark amber/gold that doesn't have the swirling clouds I expect, but is certainly opaque. A white head of volatile bubbles rises quickly and dies out over a couple of moments, fading to a thin covering. Lacing is too slippery to linger.

Smell is a little subtle, but carries the classic whiffs of sweetness and spice - bananas, cloves.

More cloves in the taste, with a very thin caramel/marshmallow body. All the right tastes for this classic style, but it doesn't kick me in the mouth with fruit flavors like Franziskaner does.

Mouthfeel carries a nice, tight, wispy carbonation that cleanses the palate of everything but a lingering sweetness, which I welcome. This beer has a fullness which is also appropriate for a hefeweizen - not watery, not chewy.

All in all, a quality, classic weissbier - A solid 4. Nothing really wowed me, but nothing stops me from enjoying this one.

I had this one on tap at the Broadway Brewhouse in Nashville a couple days ago. From my notes:

A= Poured appropriately cloudy, straw-gold in color, with a thin 1/2" white head. The head retention wasn't so great and left just a bit of thin lace down the glass.

S= Though not quite as fragrant as some hefeweizens I have had, this did throw off some nice citrus as well as the expected banana and clove.

T= Very yeast forward, leading off with flavors of orange, lemon, and apple, followed by bready malts. Some light spicing in the middle. Finish was a bit tart, making me want that next sip.

MF= light side of medium bodied, with a crisp feel.

D= Very true to the style and certainly very drinkable. The flavors just didn't "pop" enough to call it among the best, but its surely good.

I believe that this was a really good Hefe-weizen. When I looked at the color and smell the brew I knew right away that it was a Hefe-Weizen. But when I took a sip I was bombarded with this fruity almost peachy flavor that I really enjoyed. Very refreshing (compared to the other things I had that night). I will be asking for this one again for sure.
