2.91/5 rDev -12.6%
Appearance: Outstanding white foam with a pretty orange color. Not a whole lot of carbonation.
Smell: Heavy on the bubblegum and citrus.
Taste/Mouthfeel: Some bubblegum and a hint of banana. No clove present. There is a lot of orange juice in this and it is way too acidic, as it kills all the yeastiness you want to have in this. The acidity kills the mouthfeel overall, although it is pretty decent at first.
Overall: Glorified Blue Moon.

Draft at the brewery, quick review from notes. Thanks to Thomas for this one!
Cloudy opaque golden orange color, thin compact layer of foam on the surface that leaves behind a collar of lacing as the glass is sipped. Broken skim on the surface eventually.
Aroma is light, some yeasty clove and wheaty grainy notes.
Taste has lightly spicy clove elements from the yeast, and a smooth mouthfeel from the wheat and a sort of easygoing simplicity about it. Body could be a little more full and creamier, but it's easily drinkable. Just a bare bones Hefe, and there's nothing wrong with that.

On-tap at Revolution. Only ordered a taster of this one.
A - Well, it looks like a Hefeweizen. Quick-dissolving white foam settles to wispy patches of bubbles on top, a thick collar, and spotty lacing. Hazy white peach flesh body.
S - Unfortunately it does not smell like Hefeweizen, or at least not like the ones I like. There's an off-putting sweat and sulfur aroma mingling with phenolic yeast, and some standard hefe flavors well in the background.
T - Taste is thankfully better, without as much of the off flavors. That being said, it's somewhat dull, with grain, wheat, weizen yeast, and a hint of lemon. Minimal banana or clove present here, and an unpleasant sour mash sort of finish.
M - Dry, grainy, with zesty carbonation. Medium body, and a thankfully clean finish.
D - One of Revolution's rare misses. Either something went awry during the brewing or this recipe needs to be tossed out. With so many superior offerings at Revolution, I can't really recommend this one at all.
