look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

12 ounce bottle poured "mit hefe" into a weizen glass.

A - Two fingers plus of fluffy show white head. As usual the wheat helps a big head form and stay atop the cloudy golden brew. In a weizen glass with a good swirled yeast pour, this beer is exactly what a hefeweizen should look like.

S - Yeasty smell with a nice nutty tone. Tiny bit of banana and spice in there as well,

T - A very easy going, refreshing flavor with just enough of a clove flavor coming over some nice slightly fruity sweetness. A bit of banana and tiny hint of bubblegum come through as well before the brew finishes with a tart subtle bite.

M - Very smooth, fairly creamy yet light feel with just the right kiss of carbontation.

D - Bring on more. A perfectly balanced hefe that has the banana and spice flavors but remains refeshing enough in flavor to make an excellent session brew.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Pours a cloudy yellow with shades of gold. Forms a very nice head which very slowly dissipates leaving some very nice lacing.

Very nice mixture of wheat and citrus, lemon stands out.

Well balanced flavours of wheat and lemon. Incredibly easy drinking and flavourful.

Smooth bordering on creamy, medium carbonation with a very smooth finish.

Very nice for a lighter beer, complex while very enjoyable and refreshing.
