12oz. bottle poured into a hefe glass.
A- poured a perfectly clear gold with orange tint. Swirled the yeast, and dumped it. Clouded up beautifully. Really impressive. Pillowy white head, but it dissipated a little quick, would have scored perfect otherwise.
S- Wheat malt, banana bread, yeasty funk. A touch of clove and bubble gum.
T- Certainly not an authentic German offering, as it just lacks that little extra wallop of funk the German ones have. A little wheat malt, some banana-ish flavors, a hint of clove and ginger. Not overly sweet which I really like. The intensity of the taste is a let down, but it picks up a bit as the beer warms. Quite pleasant.
M- A touch thin than the German offerings. (Franzy tends to be my benchmark) But good. Carbonation is pretty standard.
O- Certainly won't replace Franzy as my go-to Hefe, but as far as American interps on Hefe go, this is likely the best I've had.
