Served on tap in a pint glass

This beer pours hazy golden orange with a one finger white head that lasts til the end. The nose and taste of this beer are the same. It has a dominant wheat nose. It is herbal and has some spice to it. The beer also has a lemon zesty characteristic. The beer is very earthy and floral. There is a nice body on this beer, it is smooth and has a really nice full feel to it. A prefect example of a Hefeweizen.

Served on tap into a Weizen glass. Poured perfectly with a bulbous, billowing white head. Deep orange in color with a beautiful haziness characteristic of the style. The nose is a wonderful blend of fruit esters, especially bannana, and some clove. The mouthfeel is firm and good carbonation. The taste is spot on with banana, orange peel and spice of cloves. Very refreshing!
