A friend of mine brought some for me directly from Cali.
A: pours a hazy-straw color, with a very low carbonation leaving almost no head at all

S: citrusy, cloves and yeasty aromas

T: Mild taste of grains, the coriander flavor is much less than the one in hoegarden beer, slightly orangey

M: light beer, very refreshing easy to drink in a hot day

Camping in Lake George, NY and this pulled from the cooler. Smelled like a beer, not too strong and definitely not a Coors Lite. Tasted crisp and clean and not too heavy. Enjoyed the entire to the last drop. Not real fancy and not too hoppy. Good beer.

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a pint glass.

Appearance is straw-colored, with a fingers-width of white foamy head.

Smell is dominated by wheat malts, lemon, and coriander.

Taste is spicier than I expected, including coriander and floral hops. I am not a fan of the lingering bready aftertaste, however.

Mouthfeel is thin bodied. There is a bit of carbonation, but maybe not enough (which might explain the aftertaste).

Overall a good hefeweizen, but not one I will go out of my way to buy again.

A - pours a light straw color with multiple fingers of white head. Great retention and lacing.

S - lots of coriander spice, light clove/banana esters. Slightly lemony.

T - really nice flavors. Pretty run of the mill with extra emphasis on the banana. Light lemony flavors transition to coriander and yeasty qualities. Aftertaste is light slice and semi sweet

M - light bodied very refreshing

O - standard here with more flavorful spices and banana.
