Very cloudy, deep orange color with a touch of rust. Not in the least bit clear. Smallish bubbly head, fades to a nice steady film.

Nose is sweetish wheat bread and lots of ripe banana. Very ripe aroma. Taste is full, I love that, an almost chewy fullness for a hefe, very nice. Taste is clean, with soft malts and wheat, lots and lots of fruity ripe banana, and a touch of bubble gum.

A good amount of tight carbonation and a medium mouthfeel really round out this brew.

Finishes real clean, with residual banana flavors and yeast. A real REAL good hefe. Packed with flavor yet still traditional in its overall approach and still extremely drinkable.

Serving type: on-tap

Unfiltered, this beer pours to a cloudy golden hue with a frothy head of white- colored foam. A good whiff reveals scents of wheat, herbs, spice, cloves, and banana peel. A positive impression greets the senses long before taking the first sip.

Tasting this beer continues the positive vibes. Flavors of wheat, yeast, clove, honey, and some dough form the backbone of the flavor. Bitterness is low, at least based on IBU, and other fruit flavors like orange and lemon become more noticeable with each drink.

This is a tasty hefeweizen overall with some good complexity and interesting nose and flavor. I wasn’t so sure with my first can, if I really liked this beer as much as I should, but my second can quickly won me over. The herbs, spice, fruit, yeast, etc., make this beer an enjoyable one and keep you guessing. It’s definitely a beer worth trying of you get the chance.

Ba Review #278
Served On: 07/17/2013
Glassware: Weizen Glass
Labeled ABV: 5.6%
Date/ Code: 7/14/13

This was a 24 pack case of 12oz cans I grabbed at Brewskee's of New Oxford.

Look: Poured a hazy yellowish color with some deeper gold tinges towards the center. Head was a 1-finger of spongy white foam, reduced to a thin film within seconds. Carbonation level was decent with a steady flow of bubbles rising upwards. Had some lacing, but not much.

Smell: Sweet banana with some tropical mango. Also some bubble gum.

Taste: First up was banana with a crisp carbonation bite up the tongue. The middle was some pineapple and more banana. Not much in the way of clove in this brew, no complaints here though. The finish was fairly clean with hints of the tropical notes returning along with a slight bitterness. The aftertaste was similar to what one would have after eating a banana.

This was a very enjoyable Hefeweizen. The lack of clove seemed to enhance the drinkability. Perfect beer for a 90 degree summer day out in the sun. I approve!

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Slyfox, a brewery in my own state and one who I think puts out a solid lineup for the price.

A- Cloudy orangish yellow with a puffy, rocky 2 finger head.

S- Clove, light Banana, and wheaty biscuit.

T- Refreshing and clean, with the yeasty esters and wheat malts playing nicely with each other.

M- Thick for the style, but not too terrible.

Overall, worth picking up a sixer.
