Thanks to Shoky01 for this
App- a very very light yellow. Not sure how to classify color? A good 2 finger head with a pure white color. No cling or lace. Very hazy and cloudy.
Smell- Its a hefe but what the hell is added? Grass? Beef jerky? Its a small wheat, lemony, peppery aroma just doesnt flow well. Lacks balance and layers.
Taste- I kinda get the classification as a hefe. Lots of hefe fake bubblegum, pepper and malts. Behind that its a grassy, beef jerky type of flavor. Not sure why so average but had some highlights with a little sweetness.
Mouth- A lighter body with a soft carbonation. The beefy grassy flavor hangs around for a bit.
Drink- I appreciate new beers but didnt like this. Finished it. But didnt like it.

On-tap at Rockwell Tavern. 14oz shaker glass brought forth a cloudy gold color without much head.
Nose is nice and Bavarian. Little more clove than banana, but enough of each to make the nostrils happy. Sweetness is fairly bold and snappy wheat aromas are low. Definite bubble-gum presence is noteable.
Big on the clove and phenolic yeast esters, but lacks the creaminess and texture of say…a Live Oak hefe. It actually has a slightly plastic-y flavor that I am not a big fan of. Id say it is just ok, nothing spectacular and could be much better with a few minor tweaks.
Serving type: on-tap
