4.46/5 rDev +12.9%
12 oz. bottle poured into a weizen glass.
Appearance: Pours a hazy orange gold with a big white head that recedes to about two inches and hangs around a bit.
Aroma: Smells of citrus, wheat, oranges and spices.
Taste: Now this is a terrific wheat beer. It's full of the signature flavors - citrus dominates, and there's no reason for a dippy orange slice. Just a really tasty wheat ale.
Mouthfeel: This is an area where this beer really excels. It's super smooth and a pleasure to drink. Great stuff.
Overall: Superb beer. I had a Blue Moon yesterday; comparing that to this is like comparing a second grade performance of Robin Hood to The Deer Hunter.

3.54/5 rDev -10.4%
Appearance- Golden with an amber streak through the middle. Pours a one finger creamy white head.
Aroma- Subtle smells of wheat and sweetness.
Taste- Muted and bland as a whole. Some banana, some orange, slight peppery yeast, and mild wheat flavors. Nothing really jumps out in this beer.
Feel- A crisp snap from the yeast. Pleasant to drink with an overall creamy/smooth texture.
Overall- Maybe age has effected this, i'm not sure, but the flavors are muted compared to other german hefes that I've had. Still a solid beer that I'll give another chance just to make sure this is an accurate assessment, so I recommend trying it just for the sake of comparison to other hefe's if anything.
