look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.75

This hefeweizen pours a golden color with a large head with excellent retention. The smell is all about the wheat and some citrus. Flavors of wheat, yeast, and some coriander and banana are muted, and you won't taste much more than the wheat unless the beer has warmed up a bit. The taste is pleasant, but this could be described as a delicate beer, as they don't hit you as strongly as in my hefeweizens, and it may because the wheat flavor is so strong that some of the ingredients are concealed. Spice is minimal. This is a creamy beer, and its thickness is a bit unusual for the style. There's some crispness there as well, but overall the mouthfeel just doesn't quite work for me, although many who generally avoid wheat ales may find the mouthfeel quite nice.

Serving type: bottle
