At long last it has arrived in TN. I've been looking out for this beer for a while.

SN has managed to make an authentic hefe while making it eminently drinkable, something not all hefe's achieve. More on that later.

This has to be the cloudiest beer I've ever seen. All true hefe's are hazy but looking at this beer, I halfway expected to see chunks of yeast roiling in its murky depths...perhaps a baby Loch Ness monster.

The smell is yeasty with subtle hints of bubblegum and just a whisper of banana and cloves. This is reflected in the flavor as well.

Some hefe's I've tried will knock you down with bubblegum aroma and make you think you're drinking liquid Hubba Bubba. But the yeasty esters are nicely integrated in this SN brew, making it extremely quaffable. There is a slight dextrinous quality to the mouthfeel which gives it some much appreciated body....not that it's thick, just not watery as some lighter ABV brews are prone to being.
