3.85/5 rDev -5.2%
Bottle from AJ's Fine Foods in on North Central in Phoenix. 12oz bottle into a chalice, L146116 printed on the bottle, which I believe is equivalent to May 26, 2011?
Poured a fairly hazy golden brown, with a finger of eggshell white head. Lacing is quite light and retention is only modest. Smells strongly of banana and bubblegum, with only a touch of clove. A candied note and a bit of white bread as well. Taste is qutie fizzy initially, with some banana and wheat. Sufficient spicing in the latter part of the mouthfeel and intot he finish. Fizzy cola like carbonation. A decent, albeit lighter, hefeweizen. Good flavours, but nothing that really sets this apart from the pack for me.

4.3/5 rDev +5.9%
A: Pale straw and very hazy. Very long lasting meringue style head.
S: Fruit notes, mostly grapes and apple. Small wheat and pale malt as well as orange peel.
T: Spice and fruit are the first profiles to come through. I get banana, orange peel as well as corriander and lemon zest. Hops act only as a slight enhancer, but dont really impart any bitterness. A lot of the flavor comes from the yeast profile. Slightly bready and citrusy. Well rounded beer.
M: Light body, low level bitterness. Light to moderate carbonation.
O: Absolutely the defining beer of the german hefe style. Pale and spicy, refreshing and solid.
