Review from Fall 2012

A: Golden straw yellow. Cloudy. Big pillowy white head. What you would want a hefe to look like.

S: Light spice, wheat, very slight citrus/peel.

T: Wheat malt, clove spice, some other spiciness, lemon citrus.

M: Not as full bodied as I was expecting.

O: A good beer (especially for the stye), but I don't see why this is such a beloved beer.

Serving type: bottle
