look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pours a deep golden straw-like color, bordering on orange with a thin white head that quickly disappears to leave almost no lacing.

Very nice aromas of banana, clove, and wheat – very simple, efficient, and to the point.

Flavors are similar to the aroma offering banana, clove, yeast, and a touch of spice.

Mouthfeel is medium to the medium-light side with medium carbonation and a drying white wine-like finish.

This beer is very true to style and to the point. A very nice, simple example of the style.

3.28/5  rDev -9.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Poured from the bottle into a wheat ale glass.

Classic large soapy and very big white rocking Hefe making head out of the bottle. Huge soapy retention that just doesn't go anywhere. A bit of a dark amber orange and slightly dull yellow body, considerably darker than most but not very clear, but with matching rising plentiful carbonation. Pretty solid.

Nose is real nice to match. Some mild clove spice, chewy wheat malt, and there's an interesting estery note to this that is more like cherry or red fruit, than the classic bubblegum and banana. Really nice I dig this not sure where this is going.

Palate seems to match the cherry fruit quality from the nose. Malt density is lacking with a bit of a watery finish, but some of the cherry fruit manages to perkelate in the mid palate. Finish is also a bit metallic and has a bit of a tin aftertaste. Warmth gives a bit more clove and classic hefe character, with some subdued bitterness.

It's not bad, but the metallic and tin notes on it are a bit too noticeable and particularly take away my enjoyment of what starts out to be a pretty decent brew.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

12 oz bottle into weizen glass. best before 09 2013.

A: pretty hazy for a Kristalweizen. probably because it is a hefeweizen as indicated on the bottle label. orange. frothy white bubbled head. good retention, minimal lacing.

S: the nose starts off with a lot of wheat. a decent amount of banana and clove. the yeast is really making its presence known.

T: the wheat is strong here. really filling, good flavor. fresh. makes for one hell of a chewy body. spicy as well, not black pepper, but more of yeast esters. bitterness is minor and mostly derived from the yeast I suppose. fruity. pears.

M: a zesty carb on a medium body.

D: really tasty summer brew from blue mountain. a well-made hefe is always easy to enjoy and that's exactly what I have got here. well done.

First had: on tap at Blue Mountain, Afton, VA

Straw-yellow pour, kristal clear, lively carbonation, topped with a fizzy white head. In the nose, toasted wheat, light banana esters, light spice, herbal hops. Mild taste, pale malts, toasted grains, light banana/clove, herbal hop notes. Pretty standard for the style. Light body, simple and drinkable, just not something I'd get a full pour of.

Serving type: on-tap

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

12 oz bottle poured into glass

A: Poured pretty clear to start with good looking carbonation. Once I swirled the remaining brew and poured the rest it got nice and cloudy. Color was on the golden side with about 1/2 a fingers worth of head that settled to a thin layer with very little lacing.

S: I'm getting the average stuff.... Citrus, banana esters, and a touch of clove.

T: I'm getting a mix of wheat and citrus right up front with touches of banana and clove at the finish. Very clean

M: Light bodied, nicely carbonated, dryer than I thought it might be. Overall very clean.

D: Pretty average for the style. Worth looking for in the VA.
