Making wheat beer more drinkable. A clear, bright pale colour with a foamy head that forms into a long-running lace. Banana-like nose with heavy bready (wheaty?) tones. More bananas in the taste along with clove and nutmeg. A nearly-light body with an active carbonation.

I dig this style because it removes the heavy, sickening yeast flavour form a perfectly good wheat beer. Try this out even if you do not like wheat brew, it just may change your mind. Cheers!

I like the hefe's a little better than the kristal versions. The appearance is very nice, yellow to golden color. The head was huge, bad pour maybe. Tasted nice enough, I had it both on tap and bottle. The bottle has a little more of the stale, sour taste to it. The tap version was fresher, refreshing, highly carbonated, but good. Decent yeast flavors. some hops to finish. It's the only non-macro carried at the place I had it, so I will definitly have it again.

Pillowy head, maintains an inch for minutes. A clear darker yellow, slight clove/ester sweet aroma. Very sweet malt flavors deep without being full-bodied. A little like candy corn candy at Halloween. A touch of hop at the back. Not complex. A couple of off tastes but the bottle was a good deal past its date mark (9/01)...devoid of annoying acidity but definitely sweet. I give a high drinkability mark and would like to try on tap.

1 Pt. Bottle.

Golden clean look with an airy white head. Musty malt smell. Light taste with hints of malt and yeast. It is refreshing, and would be great in warm weather. But does not overly impress me ...

4.05/5  rDev +7.7%
look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Presentation: 16oz brown sleek euro style bottle with a drink before date clearly marked.

Appearance: Bright pale golden-yellow in colour with a dense rocky/frothy white head that hold its ground by staying around for the duration.

Smell: Mellow fruit like floral aroma ... sweet to the nose with hints of banana and ripe pineapple.

Taste: Medium in body, clean and crisp (high carbonation) with a bready wheat malt mouth feel. Minimal hop bitterness though more hop flavour (mildly spicy) is picked towards the end in the drying finish. Slight fruit flavour lingers with some sweetness to leave the mouth not totally dry.

Notes: We could see drinking a lot of this with some messy bbq and dirty rice with beans. A well crafted brew ... pleasing to almost any beer drinkers palate.

This wheat blew me away (although it didn't hurt that the bar knew how to serve it - in a tall glass bearing the brewery's name with a round slice of lemon floating on top). Fresh bread aroma. Smooooooth and easy to drink. (Almost a little too easy).
