2.98/5  rDev -4.8%
look: 4 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Appearance: Dull gold with an ample amount of carbonation and a nice white head about 1 finger deep

Aroma: Wheaty and bready with a slight whiff of citrus

Flavor: Wheat beginning quickly fades away to a yeasty aftertaste. Slight grapefruit flavors reside in the middle. Light body makes for a very easy drinking beer with little flavor to make this beer stand out.

Overall: A little bland and non-exciting

Cloudy orange colored beer with a medium sized white colored head.

Smells lightly sweet and of wheat flour with with a spicy clove scent. Spicy smells like there might be a little coriander in it.

Starts out with a soda cracker malt flavor. Little bit of clove flavor. Still very lightly flavored.

Mouthfeel is average.

Overall a mild unoffensive ale. Still it is what it is. 4% Utah beer.

Pours a hazy golden with a thin white head. Little bit of retention and lacing. Aroma is of fruit and candy. Nice, but really weak. Body is medium and fizzy. Taste is of sweet tart candy. Notes of orange and lemon as well. Certainly not in the elite of this style, but worth a try.

2.84/5  rDev -9.3%
look: 3 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Served on-draught into a pilsner glass with a lemon garnish (ugh!) at Ray's Tavern in Utah. Reviewed from notes.

A: Pours a one finger wide head of white colour. nice thickness, okay cream, and average retention.

Body colour is a murky hazy copper. Dull. No yeast particles are visible. No bubble show.

Sm: Vague orange peel. Maybe yeast-derived clove. Mild in strength. Disappointingly simple.

T: Wheat forms the base, with muted orange peel and some clove. Quite simple, but pleasant. It's alright. A bit lackluster for the style. Decently balanced.

Mf: Smooth, wet, light, and of good thickness. Good carbonation.

Dr: Nicely drinkable, but not a great hefeweizen. I wouldn't get it again. Too simple and boring. I like it, but it just isn't up to par with good examples of the style. Hides its ABV nicely.
