Crisp hefeweizen. More of a lemon finish than other citrus notes. Nice carbonation on draft. Mellow smell. Smooth flavors. Moderately filtered appearance, pale yellow. Drank at medditeraneo in hermosa beach california on May 18 on tap. Great with tomatoe salad.

Poured on tap into pint glass.
A: Pours a very hazy/cloudy lemon hue with 1/2 inch white with good retention and lacing. Very nice for style.
S: Loads of the expected banana and clove. Soft citrus note too...brings to mind citrus (especially lemon) merengue.
T: Follows aroma very well. Wonderfully assertive and fresh. One of the best American renditions of a hefe that I've had.
M: Tremendously smooth, creamy, and fluffy (if that's possible)! Very merengue-like. Light- moderate body. Fills and lingers nicely on the palate. The feel is a highlight of an already solid brew.
D: An outstanding hefe...brings me immediately back to days traveling along the Rhine. Seek it out! Very sessionable and paired well with pizza at Pizzaria Delfina.

Cloudy amber in the pint shaker. Deeply fragrant with the German esters and a dose of bubble gum. Richly flavored and spicy. Strong flavor of cloves comes through. Really malty but just slightly sweet. Sensational mouthful of flavor.

More grainy and hoppy than most hefeweizens. A touch of bitterness in the aftertaste. If not a triumph, it's yet another highly drinkable and intriguing brew from the creative Craftsman. Nice sudsy mouthfeel to the end. On tap at Pizza Port in San Diego. ABV listed at 5%.
