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.

Appearance: Hazy medium golden in color,with a moderate, quite dense off-white head, and scattered, thick and patchy lacing.

Aroma: Prominent spicy wheat, earthy yeast, ripe bananas, and lemon.

Taste: Opens with spicy wheat, yeast, caramel, ripe bananas, and a modest amount of cloves. As the taste progresses, there is a significant orange rind presence. Later, some earthy hop flavors manifest themselves, bringing the taste to a balanced close.

Mouth feel: Smooth, soft, pleasant, fairly full, with a bit of zesty carbonation.

Drinkability/notes:A pleasant and well-crafted example.

Presentation: Packaged in a standard twelve-ounce aluminum can, served in a Samuel Adams Boston Lager Sensory glass.

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.
