3.65/5  rDev -2.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured a hazy golden color with a small head that quickly vanished. Smells very yeasty with minor hints of clove... decently carbonated and medium bodied.. crisp with hints of banana but mostly a yeasty wheat flavor with minor clove spiciness. A good wheat beer, goes down very easy. Worth a try if you come across it.

Stone Cat wheat beer pours a hazy golden yellow color with a frothy white head on top. The foam dissolves quickly leaving behind some sheets and spots of lace on the glass.

The aroma is spicy with notes of clove, yeast and bubblegum. Each sip of this medium bodied beer is dry with mild frothy fizz on the palate. The flavor is much like the aroma, bubblegum, clove and yeast with some lemon citrus mixed in. It finishes mildly tart leaving behind flavors of clove when gone.

This is a tasty wheat beer that isn't overly spiced and easy to drink.

This is far more clear than most Hefeweizens I've tried--light cloudiness. No lace on the glass side, perhaps because the head is minimal.

Strong citrus and wheat aromas.

Spicy flavors of nutmeg and corriander. Great citrus flavors: mostly lemon and some orange. Moderate body with an above average carbonation.

Hefeweizens have never been my preference. This one is middle-of-the-road in my opinion.

This beer was very full bodied. The first thing that I think about is how much heavier this beer is than most wheat beers. Especially Belgium style wheat ales. This beer smelled very wheaty, almost in an overpowering way. It was thick and full like an unfiltered beer. Although this one was filtered. I think it tasted great. My friends even got thier gfs to try it with a slice of lime (haha). they liked it too. Over all a very good beer. Not great but very good. I would recommend and buy this beer. i could drink this beer but I believe that winter months would be best.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Pours with a one-finger bubbly white head that fades to a ring leaving some lace. Ton of yeast left in bottle. Cloudy amber color. Light bodied. Nose is yeasty. Light carbonation. Starts sweet, yeast is right there in your face mixed with some hops. Good on a hot day (92) like today. $1.80 for a 12oz bottle from Colonial Spirits, Acton, Ma.

3.48/5  rDev -6.7%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Presentation: 12 oz brown long neck bottle with no freshness date or info about the beer.

Appearance: Thinnish white lace that does not stick that much at all. The usual pale orange hue of the wheat beer with small particles of yeast floating around.

Smell: Powdery, almost musty yeast … hints of clove, touch of fermented wheat and a light fruity ester.

Taste: Run of the mill crispness from a medium carbonation. The body holds up well. Dirty earthy yeast flavour throughout, grainy with ample wheaty characteristics. Mellow hopping. Slightly fruity with vague banana and pear. Some clove spiciness springs out and pairs up with a mildly husky grain that helps the brew finish a tad dry.

Notes: On par for style yet there are so many other hefe-weizens that tower over this with their greatness, this brew is still worth a try … nothing exciting or earth shattering.
