3.58/5  rDev +9.5%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Presentation: 12 oz brown longneck twist-off bottle, no freshness date. Directions on the back label on how to pour the beer, on the front it states “ale brewed with wheat, honey, orange and lemon peel”.

Appearance: Completely hazed and clouded over from the yeast as a hefe-weizen should be, big bubbled rocky white head foams up quickly then dissipates to a cake off lace on top.

Smell: Semi clean aroma with vague spice and a floral / nutty yeast smell. Bit of earth and a bready fermented wheat nose with hints of citrus.

Taste: Moderate body, with a cleansing crispness from a level carbonation and fermented wheat. Cracker like maltiness from the blend of wheat and barley that gets more grainy towards the end. Hops are in the back ground and aim for balancing the beer only. Earthy flavours from the yeast unveil some mild fruity and floral characteristics, citric sweetness and a light tartness is capture in the palate and refreshes quite well. After taste is amazingly clean and makes the mouth want more.

Notes: Right off the bat with the aroma is the tell tale signs of an American wheat beer, this is not a Bavarian hefe-weizen. This is not a bad thing but is it something that should be understood. Quite quaffable and could be a kick ass summer time brew.
