A- Pours light, pale straw with a cloudy body. Super stout white head of foam that takes a while to dissipate. Collar maintains throughout consumption.
S - Mild wheat presence, with obvious banana and citrus esters. No spice phenols present. Light hop note.
T - A very forward weizen. Moderate wheat sweetness at first. Banana, lemon, and clove favors are eminent. On the finish there is a very light bitter from the hops.
M - Medium body with medium carbonation. No warming sensation from ABV.
D - A very straight forward hefeweizen.
A perfect summer or session beer. It is a classic example to the hefeweizen style, but is by no means a trophy product. For me to rate this as one of the best hefe's, I feel like it's missing some middle spice phenols... similar to Paulaner Hefeweizen. Was also surprised that there wasn't much hop presence, either.
