1 PT .9 FL. OZ. size poured into a Mahr's Weisse glass.
A-Cloudy orange beer, streams of carbonation. Head is an awsome miracle: 4+ inches of fluffy rock that sticks around forever. Excellent lacing.
S-If you are a fan of hefes without too much clove, this is the beer for you (and me.) Bannna bubblegum, and the yeast aroma is just great. Some spice aroma, it's vague (coriander?)...
T-This beer is way better that I thought it would be (it was $1.65)....one of the most refreshing beers I've ever had, period. It quenches a mean thirst if only to inspire a new one: for more of this delicious beer! Simple hefe with a damn tasty yeast, and I LOVE it!
M-Carbonation is soft on the pallete...it's highly visible, but I can't really feel it, still for the style, it's appropriate.
CRUX: THIS IS THE HEFE I"M BUYING A CASE OF FOR THE SUMMER. It's tasty, and the price is right. Highly recommended.

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.
