Served on tap at Firestone Walker Brewery in Paso Robles, Ca.

I was hesitant to try this beer as I used to drink a lot of hefeweizens and was pretty burnt out on them.

Pours a nice semi-opaque orange color with a half finger of head.

Smells like a standard hef but tastes like no other I've had. Lots of sweet citrus notes with a slight floral quality. The tap room employee mentioned that "no orange is required" which I'm excited to say is true. I hate getting a beer with a hunk of fruit hanging off of it.

If you're like me and possibly drank a lot of Blue Moon at some point in your life, let this hefeweizen reintroduce you to the genre. Now if only Firestone Walker would bottle this stuff!

Poured from a tap into an imperial pint glass (20 oz.) at Firestone Walker Brewery in Paso Robles, Calif., on Aug. 9, 2012 for $5.50. One finger of head when I got it that was light, white and bubbly. Beer color was hazy honey orange. Good retention on sides of the glass and light on the top.

Smelled banana, cloves, Circus Peanuts, wheat, bubble gum and tropical fruit.

Tasted similar to the nose. Got Circus Peanuts, banana, tropical fruit, light citrus hops, cloves and bubble gum.

Light body. Creamy texture. Average-to-above average carbonation, slightly lower than most hefe’s. Long, smooth finish.

Really enjoyed this for a hefe and really really enjoyed it for a summer beer.
