look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.75

Appearance: Bright lively yellow that is not transparent. poured into a Carlsberg 0.4L glass yielded a nice 2 inch head that quickly dissipated.

Smell: Nose is bright and sharp with the scent of yeast

Taste: Initially sweet then sharp sourness, but not as sour and traditional sour. Lingering malty character and no essence of hops to guess about.

Mouthfeel: not very existant.

Overall: Summery but sour. Makes my stomach a bit upset/unpleasant. wouldn't buy a 6 pack but nice to have as part of the 12 can variety pack by Butternuts.

Serving type: can

look: 2 | smell: 2.25 | taste: 2 | feel: 2 | overall: 2.25

Appearance: Golden and hazy and a head around one inch high that is lightly foamy.

Aroma: Light grassy, clove, banana a little bit of spice in the back end.

Taste: Very light bodied, semi crisp mouthfeel, banana, light clove, grassy.

Notes: Not too much to this one it's rather lighter than most Hefeweizens decently drinkable could be good on a hot day but that's about it. Cheers.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Can into glass.

a: fizzy, opaque yellow. Head flares up and goes away fast, leaving film on the surface but no lace on the glass.

s: lemon/grapefruit and coriander. Doesn't really smell like beer, just fruit.

t: wheaty, sour, very pleasant and refreshing. No bitterness to speak of.

m: fizzy and slippery. Easy drinking. Banana aftertaste.

o: another hefeweizen I like! It's a pretty extreme version of the type, which turns out to be a nice approach.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

12 oz. can

Pours a light, nearly clear lemon gold, white lacing for a head.

Smells of lemon citrus, grassy malts, and coriander.

Light lemony tart flavor with some coriander and vague malt.

Light body with tingly carbonation on the back of the tongue.

A highly drinkable and sessionable ale that falls sadly short on taste, there is nothing offensive or bad about this beer but it feels watered down. Could be worse, but could be a lot better too.
