look: 2.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 4

Poured from a bomber into a shaker pint glass.

A: Slightly hazy, light amber color with over one finger of diminishing white foam head. Scant lacing remains on the glass.

S: Strong cloves and drying carbonic acid stand out amongst a typical field of qualities such as banana and bready yeast.

T: Begins off-dry, with wheat and balanced yeast phenolics amidst bright, surging acidity. Flavors become drier and less intense in the middle, providing significant refreshment through the mellow finish. The finish also features banana and more wheat, but not bitterness.

M: Thin viscosity, palpable acidity is cut somewhat by coating wheat, with moderate carbonation. The overall effect is less than the sum of the parts, feeling a bit limp and lifeless.

D/O: Here is a locally-brewed Southern California hefeweizen that is a consistent performer, delivering approachable but authentic qualities. Flavor, texture, and smell could connect more seamlessly, as in the archetypal Bavarian standards of the style. When one considers just how few California-based production breweries attempt this style, the bottled version of this beer really becomes a significant contribution to the marketplace selection available in Orange County.
