Date tasted: July 6, 2013... Glassware: weizen glass... Occasion: mucho food o at Jim and Maria's annual 4th (6th) of July party....Appearance: thick, foamy head that recedes to a single finger of white cloud; body is sunset orange with thick chunks of sediment sailing up and down its coast--a yeasty depot at the glass's bottom... Aroma: banana and clove, as the bottle promises; yeasts are soft, less doughy than expected... Palate: medium-bodied, teethy impact on the mouth; a pleasant presence that doesn't dominate--acidic, too... Taste: VERY subtly in its profile; the banana acquiesces and the clove is a gentle tickle at the throat--no problems, but not outstanding... Overall: smooth and useful, this hefe is indeed NOT a lemon-suds extravaganza, as its label warns its peers have become; its heft and subtlety make adding a lemon possible but negotiable; can't see this on par with any real German offering, but the price was right....

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.)
