Poured from a bottle to chilled glass.
Appearance - Pours into the glass nicely, swirled the last 1/3 of the bottled and poured it in. Has a thin white head about a finger. Settles to a very thin head. The color of the beer is beautiful. Has a foggy light gold tangerine color to it. Looks tasty and refreshing. Almost zero lacing.
Smell - I get hints of clove and wheat bread, and a little bit of banana. I noticed that the aromas got a little bit stronger half way through the glass.
Taste- This hef has a slight orange and lemon flavor up front which is finished by some clove and wheat. The beers flavor is layered quite nicely. Flavors linger on the palate for some time. Very crisp and clean. This beer really hits the money right when you swallow a gulp. The flavors really pop out as soon as it goes down the throat.
Mouthfeel - The carbonation tickles your tongue and the beer feels smooth in the mouth. It feels lighter than it looks.
Overall - First off, hefeweizens aren't my first choice when I drink a beer, but I don't mind them. I expected a lot from this beer after reading some of the other reviews, and I can say that it has lived up to the expectations. Quite an easy beer to drink and the flavors really shine. I have no problem going back to this one in the future.
