500ml bottle into a weizen glass.

Pours a hazy rusty orange with a huge billowy head.

Smells amazing. Full of orange and lemon with a great yeastiness. Smells fairly tart.

The flavor is orange along with bubblegum and banana and a little bit of clove. A slight citric tartness is present but it doesn't detract at all. Mouthfeel is smooth and slightly drying at the finish making this an excellent thirst quencher.

Overall, an excellent hefe and wonderful on a hot day.

Hazy yellow color, with a fluffy head. Initially I am getting a big sense of the yeasts in the aroma, in that it is almost 'creamy, or yogurt-like...' This isn't really a bad thing if it sounds that way. It's earthy, grainy, and some tartness and sour apple in there as well. Very complex aroma. The taste is a very soft, with a light breadiness, hint of banana, and not very spicy. Ethereal. I really enjoyed this, and would love to get my hands on more. Great spring/summer beverage.

Pouring a beautiful hazy golden orange, this hefe pours a little lighter than the average. But a huge, foamy head lingers for the duration of the glass, leaving behind a nice lace that clings perfectly.

The nose is a little mild with hints of clove, banana, and pepper, while the mouth adds a bit of lemon zest to flavor. Unfortunately, the beer has an odd finish resembling the flavor of stale rice cakes that sort of takes the freshness from the mouth (the beer has an expiration date of 09/12 – six months later than my review).

The beer is crisp and refreshing, and up until the odd finish, a real winner. However, the flavor of rice cakes is off-putting enough to cause lower my overall enjoyment.

Poured from a 500 ml bottle into a pint glass. This pours a hazy yellowish color with a massive white head. The smell is of wheat, yeast eaters, lemon. The feel is medium to light high carbonation. The taste is good, light and crisp, wheat, no real hop presence, lemon, banana.
