Bottle has the numbers 3085116 50 on the neck and 052 13 C2 0559 S on the bottom of the bottle. Numbers people understand the meaning of would be nice for dating purposes.

Poured from the 12oz bottle into a hefeweizen glass from Dick's in LoDo Denver. Pours a yellow cream color, like banana and creamcicle mixture. Head is fairly large in size, about two fingers in size. Not much lacing present and as I mis the rest of the yeast with the beer, the head recedes.

Aroma is phenolic and clove-like. Very yeasty, lemon, not much banana if any at all. Slight bit or peppery spice.

Clean crisp flavors. The yeast and lemon are quite prevalent with some clove and coriander spice as well. The aftertaste is bready and yeasty.

A decent beer. The style is not my favorite. As mentioned in the style parameters, I think this would go great with a little slice of lemon for added flavor and acidity. Light bodied and refreshing, a great summertime beer. Overall, it was a little bland for me.

Great Hefe for the price point. Full of body and flavor, notes of banana, and fresh summer taste. I have been of a Hefe binge lately and I'm sad that I found this late in the game. Being from a bigger name brewer I did not think it would be a good as it is.

this is the perfect time of year for this crisp hefeweizen. the color of this beer is a nice cloudy golden that fades to a pale yellow. the smell is malty with citrus and spices. the taste is clean, allowing a lot of spiciness to come through. i tend to drink beers like this in the summer, but the flavor of this is so solid i would drink it year round- it is also a cheaper alternative to allagash white- or the local fair, westbrook white thai, (although the white thai does a little more zest.)
