3.9/5  rDev -1%
look: 5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Bought at People's Liquour Warehouse in Fall River

Poured from bottle to pint glass

Not sure of freshness and review might not be completely accurate as it is somewhere between cold and room temperature.

Appearance: Exactly as you'd expect from the style. Cloudy golden orange. Poured a nice two finger foamy head that dissipated rather quickly leaving a nice ring around the outside. Tiny bubbles. No lacing

Aroma: Wheat, cloves, faint banana

Taste: Follows the nose. Clove heavy (maybe since it's room temp), crisp wheat, very subdued banana at first - more flavor towards the bottom seemingly

Mouthfeel: Crisp, light, somewhat creamy

Overall: Great example of a true heffeweizen. I feel like a lot of American heffe's miss their mark. Personally, I'm a fan of the style and like to try a new one when I see it. Have yet to be disappointed by a German heffe. Would definitely revisit this one

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Very nice amber color, bit dark for a hefe. Smells fruity, on the acidic side. Foam is airy and settles down relatively quickly. Flavor and yeast is not overwhelming, and the aftertaste is also light. Overall good, refreshing, just above mild and pleasurable to drink.
