A – The colour of this beer is pretty much right on point; tawny-orange mixes with golden-yellow accompanied by billowing head.
S – Classic hefeweizen scents; freshly baked bread, popcorn, banana, a little yeast but little spice.
T – It definitely has the cleanness of flavour which one looks for. The popcorn reappears, accompanied by some sweet bread and banana. Not quite hitting the yeastiness or spiciness which characterises the very finest of this style.
M – Pretty much spot on. Crisp, well-balanced. Refreshing and quaffable. Perhaps slightly underweight.
O – The best American attempt at a hefeweizen I’ve encountered so far. Nevertheless, while good it’s not quite there. Part of me wonders whether my palate has changed of late, such that I’m really looking for a dunkelweizen to provide that maltier, yeastier, spicier experience. I’ll look forward to tasting this blind against Weihenstephaner and Schneider tap 7 in the coming months. A great-value summer staple nonetheless.
