3.85/5  rDev -5.2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

A: Pours a cloudy, golden-amber, with a thick & frothy head of off-white foam. The head lingers nicely, never fully disappearing and leaving a trace of thin lace on the walls.

S: Citrussy notes first. Also some white pepper and banana. A touch of fresh-cut grass.

T: The wheat-force is strong in this one. The citrussy tartness is much less than I expected from the aroma, but it's detectable. Some late spiciness, but also a phenolic bitterness.

M: More moist than crisp, but with adequate carbonation.

O: Above average, but not a standout in its class. Probably better paired with food (bratwurst & sauerkraut come to mind) than drunk alone.

Serving type: bottle

3.98/5  rDev -2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured into pint glass from bottle, bottle date is meh... April 12, 2011, if I deciphered the code correctly, L102116U.

A: Cloudy golden color with a fluffy white 2 finger head that fell quickly. Lots of yeast sediment.

S: Lots of banana and some apple in the nose with hints of spice: clove, coriander.

T: Same as aroma but the apple is more pronounced, I suspect the hops are adding to that flavor coming through. Grainy toasted malt and clove flavors ride throughout the taste. Nice crisp finish.

M: Bright, crisp, refreshing, light bodied.

O: Very tasty, very easy to put down. Not my favorite hefeweizen, but for how readily available it is in the US, it's a winner.
