2.58/5  rDev -24.1%
look: 2 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

Pours a bit more bright than other hefes. Big, foamy, bubbly head that is gone within minutes. Thing, watery lacing that dissipates rather quickly. The bright color brings me back to the grossness of that fruity pebble Leinenkugel brew, but aside from that there's nothing much wrong with the hue. Just different. The head and lacing is sorely lacking for a hefeweizen, though.

Smells very yeasty, some sourness in the background and a hint of citrus.

There's a really strong tart, sour taste presented by the lemony citrus in this brew. It dominates most of the taste. Let me make it clear that tart citrus is not at all my thing. That being said, I can recognize the value of this brew but it's not one of my favorites.

There's a bit of overcarbonation here but nothing too drastic. Mouth feel is pretty standard, medium-bodied hefe.

This one is worth trying but not all that great.

3.36/5  rDev -1.2%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.25

Packaged 6/18/14.

Pours a hazy light yellow with a foamy white head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, earth, spice, and yeast aromas. Taste is much the same with grain and spice flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of spice bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is an above average beer that seems pretty basic, but it's fairly tasty and refreshing for what it is.

3.48/5  rDev +2.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Can packaged (date illegible) at 40 degrees into weizen glass (But the 3 other beers in this mixed 12-pack were packaged on 5/21/14 and 5/22/14.)
Aroma of malt and yeast
Head large (5.5 cm), white, frothy, rapidly diminishing to a broken 3 mm layer
Lacing poor – few small islands with mostly small bubbles
Body light yellow, hazy
Flavor begins lightly sweet followed by a short burst of sourness (quite nice), some yeast phenolics, a little graininess; no alcohol, no hops, no diacetyl.
Palate light to medium, watery, soft carbonation.

Another pretty damn good beer from Butternuts, easily as good as any German weizen/hefeweizen, fantastic for the price point.
