A: First hefeweizen out of a can for me. Poured a bright straw yellow with about a finger coaxed out of it. Foam had big white bubbles that faded fast. Thick cloudiness and medium light carbonation.

S: Big sweet banana smells. Spice or coriander and nutmeg. Big yeastiness. White bread and crackers.

T: Starts off very bready with bread yeast. Fruity pineapple sweetness rounds out the wheat. Finishes zesty and tangy with orange, spice and saltiness. A whole lot of tang at the end with coriander and an herbal basil sort of flavor. More wild yeast funk follows up.

M: Big and viscous. Lots of mouth coating unfiltered particles. Finishes tangy which really cleanses most of the big yeast and heavy bread notes.

O: This is a great hefe. I really like the how big and bold the flavors are, yet without overpowering and leaving a heavy feeling at the end. It's all about the finish with this one.

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 from Brewskee's of New Oxford.

Look: Poured a hazy yellowish color with some deeper gold tinges toward 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!

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.
