look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75
Had a cpl pints on the patio, served in a frosted glass. I've had this many times and it is far better on tap than from the can IMO.
A - Pretty representative of all craft Hefes, cloudy gold-tinged orange body with a good amount of stiff froth. Decent lacing.
S- Mildly sweet and grassy, alot of clove and light on banana esters. Slight citrus tang also. Very good.
T - Dialed back a bit from its German counterparts, (Franziskaner, Paulaner, and Erdinger are all top-flight Hefes to me) but it makes for a really versatile and pleasant beer. All of the flavors on the nose are there, none very prominent but they mingle well and keep it interesting enough to have a few. The scaled-back approach doesnt weigh too heavily on the palate either. Well done.
M - Smooth and creamy, slightly sweet and oily finish.
O - I like having this one around for hot summer weather, very good local offering.
Serving type: on-tap

3.3/5 rDev -11.1%

Crafted on 4/15/14.
Pours a murky honey orange with a foamy beige head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is of malt, wheat, caramel, spice, and cardboard aromas. Taste is much the same with wheat, caramel, and spice flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of spice bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is an above average beer that is drinkable but nothing too memorable in my opinion.
