On-tap at Bailey's Taproom in Portland OR.

Pours a very light yellow colour with minimal haze, a big negative for a hef. Head is a nice fine white colour, forming a solid egg-white cream across the crown of the beer. Really, though, it's a weak looking beer. Unimpressed.

Nose is yeasty, off and really not in style at all. It has none of the fragrance that suits a wheat-based brew, instead giving plasticene and salty dough. There's a slight pear note, but it's not nearly enough, and it's almost unnoticeable against the other unpleasant characters. Really. Awful. Rubbish.

Taste is similar. Light yeast which lends a character almost like that most appalling Aussie hop Pride of Ringwood. Fetid white corn comes through lending a weak hint of rank, off chilli. Really? This is what you're giving me Gilgamesh? This is very poor indeed. Feel is light but pointless.

Blech. This is genuinely far from being a hefeweizen, and in fact is actively offensive to me. Very, very, unimpressed—so much so, that I'm prepared not to try Gilgamesh again based on the paucity of this example of their craft.

Serving type: on-tap
