From a 355 ml bottle into a hefe glass.
A-The brew looks like a hefeweizen should look with a bright, yellowish color, murk, and an appearance that shifts with the light. Small point loss for the head, which is a little underwhelming at one and one-half fingers of nearly white foam. It doesn't last very long, either.
S-The smell is a lovely mixture of lemon, spicy wheat, and doughy sweetness. It reminds me of spiced lemon cake. Nothing crazy here, but nice integration with solid flavors proves that sometimes simple is good.
T-The taste tracks the smell with mildly sweet bread dough, lemon, clove and white pepper spice, and a well-defined wheat bite. The flavors are not over-the-top, but this beer packs a lot of flavor.
M-The feel is pretty smooth with ultra-fine carbonation that lasts a while on the palate before tailing off.
O-This might be my favorite U.S. hefe, and one of the only U.S. hefes to compete with the Germans. It looks pretty close to correct, it smells pretty close to correct, and it tastes pretty close to correct. I thought the feel was a little strange, but not enough to detract from this great summertime beer.

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
