Notes/Commercial Description:
SanTan Hefeweizen is an unfiltered Bavarian wheat bear, effervescent and sweet, with an unmistakable banana-clove character. Often paired with a lemon or an orange, SanTan embraces this American enhancement of the beer however we still believe it is the best the way it is brewed.

3.76/5  rDev +1.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Pours a surprisingly clear honey color with a surprisingly modest head for the style; the foam fades quickly and only leaves a few dots of lace

Smell: Bananas and citrus, with an earthy aspect and a hint of clove

Taste: Wheat bread and banana, up front, with white pepper and orange peel developing, in the middle; citrus peel dominant, after the swallow

Mouthfeel: Medium body with prickly carbonation

Overall: Not a bad hefe as domestic versions go (and most domestic versions are much worse); while it dials the banana in nicely, some of the other flavors are out of whack; the mouthfeel also lacks creaminess;

Thanks, mikedR (from the other site), for the opportunity

Serving type: can

3.3/5  rDev -11.1%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.25

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.
