Pours into a weizen glass with a huge foamy white heady and a beautiful cloudy orangish-yellow tint that is the picture of perfection for a hefe in my opinion. Smells of Corrainder, clove, citrus peel and bread. Leaves spotchy white lacing down the glass. I didnt really like this beer until i got introduced to the german hefe style, and compared to the american version this is definately a world apart. Taste begins with a spicy clove taste followed by corriander and lemon zest with a crisp finish. Alot more tastes than my humble pallet can really decipher, but an excellent beer overall. Really a first rate hefe, better than any american version i've found and its inexpensive (for an import) to boot. A bit lest crisp and refreshing that im used to for hefe's even german ones so it gets docked a bit on mouthfeel but a great beer anyways

Tap at tavern in the square in Northborough.
Nice creamy rich 1 Finger head fades at a med pace then retains well at the bottom, super hazy murky cloudy carrot orange color.
Nose typical hefe, lots of creamy wheat, plenty of citrus and mild orange peel, some spices clove hint coriander, some banana esters, etc.
Taste brings more of the same, basic Bavarian hefe, creamy wheat, not really toasted wheat just clean creamy base, with some light citrus and orange zest, touch tangy. Into esters, banana, clove spices, little coriander, etc. Finish is creamy sticky but dry, bit more spices, banana esters, and orange zest.
Mouth is med bod, creamy, decent carb.
Overall nice hefe, typical Bavarian hefe but not amazing. Nice summer hot day beer.

Scorching hot weekday in NC, what better way to take the edge off at the end of a long day than a good Hefe from the Fatta-land.
A beautiful pour with a nuclear mushroom cloud of a bright, tight white head. Pure hazy golden beauty with minimal bubbles. It smells nice and rich with the yeasty signature of banana and cloves prevelant over a malty base. The taste is very nice with a very strong malt backbone, the signature yeasty flavors following he nose and very little bitterness at all. It's fullbodied and goes down wetly, very satisfying.
Overall, a great Hefe, right up there with Weihenstaphan in my book. A perfect summer thirst quencher. Time to change into my leiderhosen.
