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

Serving type: bottle

I'm not generally a wheat beer kind of guy but this beer has the potential to change that. Excellent from the tap-haven't tried it from the bottle. Came across as light and refreshing without lacking in character. Very drinkable, I highly recommend.

Serving type: on-tap
