3.03/5  rDev -17.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3

Pours a bleach-white head that is several centimeters tall and composed of dense bubbles, somewhat resembling wet cotton. The head collapses rather quickly for a wheat beer, at least compared to others I've had, but a half-centimeter foam remains atop the beer for the entire session. Good lacing is left on the sides of the glass, elegantly framing the dark, golden yellow brew (when held up to a light source, the beer reveals its primary orange and yellow tints).
Aroma is rather lackluster: a bit of orange fruitiness, coriander and some alcohol, but no banana, yeast, wheat, or malt scents as I would expect from the the style. Taste follows the scent, some moderate tart fruitiness (and I detect some coconut, oddly) of orange or lemon upfront with wheat and malt following thereafter, but no detectable banana or clove. Aftertaste is tart and sweet, a bit candy-like, but not cloying. This is an interesting interpretation of a wheat beer, but not a version that I'd say is terribly successful.
In the mouth, the beer is medium-bodied on the palate, foamy and creamy from the moderate level of carbonation. It finishes dry, rounding out a very satisfying mouthfeel.
A relatively generic hefeweizen: good appearance and mouthfeel, but lacking in aroma and flavor, leading to an ambivalent stance. While this beer can be drunk easily, there are other offerings that have all aspects in order.

This pours a cloudy, golden yellow color with a thick, foamy head. The aroma is full of wheat, coriander, and yeast. The flavor is full and delicious with orange and wheat tones. The texture is smooth and filling for a lighter wheat beer. This has to be one of the best beers for its style.

500ml bottle, best before 12/2013

A- Usual hefeweizen look: cloudy, maybe a little more on the darker/orange side than usual. Nice dense white head, good persistence and lacing

S- Malt sweetness, a hint of citrus, slight clove. Soft, quite weak

T- Soft and sweet bready malts, lemon, hints of banana. Classic touch of phenolic feel, with the usual hint of clove. Simple and straightforward classic hefe

M- Very nice mouthfeel, soft as it should be, body and carbonation in perfect average check for the style

O- Enjoyable and refreshing hefe, expecially worth in the summer. Just nothing special

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

appearance: usual cloudy mysticism of the good old Hefe. Little bit darker than the usual, but loving it

smell: distinct bananas you can not miss, almost a banana juice smell, slight edge of the hops for good measure

taste: hop bight up front then the good old rich goodness of the classic hefe. a malty pleasure for the tongue

mouthfeel: bit of a weaker mouth feel but not bad. keeps you sipping. good hot day brew

overall: A pleasant surprise I really enjoy. Happy to be having this brew and all it contains. A good brew worthy of another sample
