Pours a chestnut brown with ruby hues and a foamy, light tan head that quickly dissipates to leave only faint traces of lacing to accompany the lively bubble of carbonation.
A unique aroma seems to offer the yeast of a hefe and the hearty malt of a Marzen, yet also hints of cocoa. It is earthy, yet zesty, with the german malts really becoming present as it warms.
The flavor is similar with a mix of German malts and yeast with lemon zest and a touch of spice/coriander.
Light to medium in body with medium carbonation and a crisp finish.
A decent take on the style, perhaps a touch heavy on the malt, but certainly worth a try.

Damned thing almost exploded as I popped the cap, then literally filled my snifter with the head after roughly an ounce of beer hit the glass. The beer is a medium brown, very rich looking, in color; but all you notice is the huge head of slightly offwhite bubbles. All different sizes, all popping at different times.
Nothing Earth-shattering about the nose, it's not bad, just nothing exceptional. Standard issue banana and clove, with what must be cinnamon giving it more depth. All the usual hefe suspects are kept in line with an aggressive malt bill.
I totally dig the taste. Very malty, but it's got that nice yeasty tang to it and the aforementioned spice (has to be cinnamon) to balance the twang and add a little sweetness.
Medium-bodied, feels thick and creamy as it dances on the tongue. Tangy and sweet, faintly spicy with some heat at the end, mostly from the carbonation.
An extremely easy drinker. No real faults, the lack of smell is a minimal issue in my book. The style hasn't always been high on my list of must haves, but this beer may enter my normal rotation of drinks.
