look: 4 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
12 oz bottle that was purchased in Las Vegas with the code 1282 stamped into the back. Poured into my perfect pint glass.
Appearance: Easily the most massive head I have seen, white, solid and 1/2 the glass. The beer is a hazy straw color. Leaves some lacing as it goes.
Smell: Yeast, wheat, lemony phenols, clove, bubble gum and a little band-aid. Exactly how a good hefe should smell.
Taste: Delicious wheat with citrus overtones, most from the yeast and maybe a touch from hops, I suspect. Clove comes out a little more strongly in the taste. Actually pretty thirst quenching. This one does not bowl you over with intensity (big stout of IPA) but the flavor has a tone of great quality.
Mouthfeel: Smooth texture and a lower amount of carbonation (due to the massive head) make for a great feeling beer.
Overall: These guys have been brewing this one for a while, so I imagine that they have perfected this style. I would tend to agree. For some strange reason, this one is not available in Utah, and that is a shame.

4.54/5 rDev +2.9%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5
appearance- golden yellow with an extremely slight amber hue in the middle. Foamy, two finger head produced.
aroma- sweet notes of wheat, orange/banana
Taste- Very similar to nose and par for the course with the expected hefe flavors. Where this is unique is that there is a slight vanilla flavor that melds perfectly with the creamy texture of the beer.
Feel- As stated before this has a great creamy texture, while being clean and incredibly drinkable.
Overall- Great beer and certainly one of, if not, the best Hefe's I've tried so far. The vanilla creaminess aspect definitely separates this from the pack.
