Reviewed while listening to Queen's greatest hits.
A - Pours a pleasant hazy golden with a big foamy head. Looks like a hefeweizen should. Appears well carbonated, a myriad of bubbles are rising in my glass. "Under Pressure"
S - Smells sweet and wheaty. Very slight banana and yeast aroma.
T - Extremely refreshing. A little on the light side, flavorwise. Not too many typical hefeweizen banana/clove overtones. Still, it's quite tasty. I think I would like their Dunkel. The after taste is reminiscent of my first sniff of the beer's aroma. "Killer Queen"
M - Mouthfeel is pretty light and subtle. Definitely smooth. "Fat Bottomed Girls"
O - I wasn't disappointed... although I was craving some stronger weizen smell/flavor, which leads me to believe I should try their dunkelweizen. This beer is highly drinkable, tasty, and pretty to look at. Can't really note any negatives, other than the fact that I would have like a stronger flavor experience. That doesn't mean this isn't a fine example of a hefeweizen. "Bicycle Song"
This whole beer/Queen synergy reminds me of a song from The Simpsons:
"When I was seventeen, I drank some very good beer
I drank some very good beer I purchased with a fake ID
My name was Brian McGee
I stayed up listening to Queen
When I was seventeen"
(I'm not really 17)

I had this beer once in a four pack that a friend bought for me and was very impressed
Normally, I am not impressed with hefes in bottles, but this was an exception
Poured a nice three finger German head into a wheat beer german glass. Head was impressive, lasted and very distinctive German weissbier mushroom top bloom. beautiful hazy yellow.
Aromas of cloves, bananas and just a faint third spice (grains of paradise?)
Taste follows the nose, with just a hint more citrus
Mouthfeel is full but crisp and refreshing
Overall, I think this is my favorite Hefe-weissen in a bottle. My only regret is that I look for it all the time, and it is hit or miss, the Dunkle is usually whats in stock at least in Atlanta….It left a good impression, because I look for it all the time
