3.39/5  rDev -9.6%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3.25

a very underwhelming hefe, pouring a curious clearish copper color with a short but thick off white head. the nose lacks that banana clove complex, and stale german malts is all I really smell. not even wheat malt, but sweeter and heavier caramels. the flavor isn't bad, sort of fruity, not as yeast forward as I like my hefeweizens to be, but still the yeast is probably the most observable flavor element. the mouthfeel ruins this beer entirely. it had very little carbonation, and the curious sweeter malt choice gets heavy as a result. there is no spice or banana to fall back on, and this one sort of dies on the palate. I had much higher hopes for this, but it was sitting right next to the weihenstephaner in the cooler for the exact same price, so no worries on finding a good affordable hefe. this one just didn't cut it for me, although im sure itd be different on tap at the source. maybe the freshness monster got the best of this one...

look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

A- muddy amber. Some carbonation can be seen rapidly rising amidst the yeasty haze. Fluffy light tan head. Great retention, beautiful lacing.

S- yeast, and lots of it. It also has aromas of lemon and banana.

T- bready, yeasty, some vague fruitiness. Citrus, and caramel.

M- light, velvety carbonation. Creamy finish.

O- good, but it lacks depth.
