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.

Feb 2014 - From Bottle. Ever pleasant even from a 12 Fl. bottle. Remember to chase the bottom with a swirl.
Spring 2013. On tap at Rattle n Hum, NYC. Spring is in the air & this really pleasant drink goes down very easily. Great, great balance in all the right places.
Nov 2012. On tap at Rattle n Hum, NYC. Back in Nov. Still slightly out of season, but this time the body feels more in tune w/the climate. Nice delicate citrus tang.
02/21/12. On tap at Rattle n Hum, NYC. Good body, great balance but a tad heavy for a session.
Serving type: on-tap
