Easily the lightest (in style/color) beer that i've reviewed yet... Fairly new to this style as i normally yield to bigger American beers.
Pours a bright copper color with a strong head that took a while to settle down so i could properly fill my pilsner glass.
I smell a bright floral scent with a bit of fresh cut grass once it warmed up a hair.
Flavors are great... a bit of unripe banana and lot of wheat initially comes out then a nice roasted wheat flavor in the back. Seriously amazing here...
Definitely not what i was expecting in terms of how round the flavor is, it's full yet crisp.
Rolling around in my mouth are tiny bubbles, not unlike a sparkling wine, but the flavor is able to work through the carbonation and in the end you have the strong upfront flavor mixed with an extremely effervescent beer.
I'm blown away, this is seriously good. And not just "good for a hefeweizen", but good.

4.54/5 rDev +2.9%

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.
