3.65/5  rDev +0.6%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Poured into a twelve ounce weizen glass from the bottle.

Color is clear straw gold, meaning they have partially filtered this beer. More of a kristalweizen. Small white head.

Smell: Not that impressive. Not the same level of bananas, but clove, fresh wheat, sugar. It passes as a hefe, but barely.

Taste: Much better. Has a smooth, creamy taste, with a small amount of banana, some clove, minimal citrus, and a good portion of wheat malt. The yeast is filtered out of this brew, so realistically it would and could be far better with that left in.

Mouthfeel: Not nearly as creamy as German hefes. Possibly due to the filtration. Without the filtration, this beer would earn far higher marks - to be honest, it's actually a Kristalweizen.

Serving type: bottle

Had this on tap at the Syracuse location in Destiny USA. A big, beautiful, 20 ounce glass emblazoned with the word "HEFEWEIZEN" shows up, and delivers. This brew is an excellent example of the style, and went perfectly with the flat steak I ordered.

Serving type: on-tap
