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.
