3.03/5  rDev -11.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Poured into a pint glass, color is straw gold, head did not appear.

Smell is sweet, not much wheat or hefe yeast scents.

Taste is overly sweet, almost syrupy, hefe flavor is subdued, no wheat flavors noted.

Mouthfeel is a bit harsh, maybe overcarbonated, or biting from the yeast flavors.

Overall, a subpar hefeweizen, too sweet and harsh in mouthfeel. Maybe this is an off bottle, but does not have hefe profile in nose and flavor.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours a golden cloudy amber with a small quickly fading white head. Aroma and Taste of sweet fruits, banana, wheat with some yeast, mild bitterness. A medium body, crisp mouth feel with good carbonation on the palate. Finishes with sweet fruity notes, some banana, wheat and yeast flavors with light bitterness on the end for balance. Overall a good, crisp and refreshing session ale.

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....

I was a little disappointed. I was so excited to try the hefe since it was the first time we could get it in Colorado. Sorry to say but I will probably never buy it again, I will stick to the local brews instead. Epic failure on this one, but they did redeem themselves with the Dark Seas.
