I've enjoyed this on tap a few times in the Burgh over the last year, snagged a bottle last night on Mount Washington from a cool affordable bottleshop, Packs and Dogs. Pours a murky clouded orange golden nectarine hue with a large flowing cloud of off white head. Aroma has big banana, citrus, and bubblegum flowing forth in the nose, definitely has those love-able German yeast esters. Clove is kicking in the background with just barely a nipple of herbal hop dust. Sturdy flavorful yeast components, sharp wheat sweetness cut with a mild acidic yogurt like tartness, big clove and pink bubblegum balanced with citrus/banana tropical fruit. I like this beer, it's a true hefe brewed on the West Coast, good flowing high end of the carbonation scale with slightly chewy girth to it from the proteins in the yeast sediment. Damn that's a good wheat beer, I really like it ballsy flavorful hefeweizen if there ever was one.

2.81/5  rDev -17.6%
look: 2.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.75

Pour rises up into large fizzy head, but rapidly dissipates - almost no lace. Initially clear but murky after adding yeast from bottom of bottle. Nose of clove, over-ripe apples, mildly peppery phenols - very promising. Carbonation is a bit fizzy and rough, not creamy. It's a bit unsettling. Flavor is yeasty and a bit quite sour with a bit of spiciness. Finish is dry with white pepper and lime. I like the beer. It is very refreshing. But when Mission Brewery says on the label that the beer is a "German-style wheat beer", I would have to say that Mission did not quite hit the mark for the hefeweizen (at least not how it is interpreted at this time.)
