2.6/5  rDev -28.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 2.5

Poured rigorously into an over sized snifter.
Thick white head that falls back quickly, leaving a thick ring around the collar of retention.
One or two stray fingers of lace.
Good cloudy unfiltered appearance, I like that.
It wants to be orange and then it wants to be a golden yellow.
Cant see through though.
Aroma seems to be playing peek a boo with my sniffer. Hiding a bit, not coming forward.
But there is a mysterious smoked malt, or wood present, as well as a tart bready sourdough funk and grain husks.
Taste has summer session beer written all over it. Without being too biased flavor seems to lack a little on this fella. Mostly sourdough, lemon zest, sour banana and very faint clove.
Feels is slick and full bodied but broken up by a good amount of carbonation bite.

Not really my go to for style and being true to the beer this seems to be a gateway beer for craft scardies.
I'll take it over any INBEV product, but probably wouldn't seek it out.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Picked up a growler at the brewery's two-year birthday party!

Look - hazy yellow color, decent head (that dissipates quickly) and limited lacing

Smell - strong banana notes, light toast smell

Taste - citrus and banana flavors, some sweet maltiness, yeasty flavors

Feel - smooth start, balanced carbonation, medium bodied, limited trailing bitterness

Overall - very tasty hefeweizen

Serving type: growler

3.9/5  rDev +7.1%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Light yellow, hazy. Big head.

Smell: Crackers, banana, yeasty.

Taste: Lemons and wheat trade off in the forefront on each taste. Full flavored but easy to drink.

Overall: A nice easy drinking hefe, I like them to have a little more yeast and banana in the taste, but this one's lemon and wheat also hit the spot. Cans, 12oz bottles, or a kegerator would be better than 22oz bottles though.

3.74/5  rDev +2.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

a very light yellow pour, opaque, with a finger of head which turned into 1/8" for the rest of the glass. smells of orange citrus, bell pepper, saison yeast.. probably one of the nicest smelling hefeweizens i've come across. the flavor is pretty generic of the style, lots of wheat, fruity citrus taste of orange peels.. but then the yeast kicks in at the end and is a completely different yeast than most hefes i've had.. very farmhouse saison style.

light in body with high carbonation, a very refreshing beer.

this is really nice for the style, but as it's not a style i am very into - i feel like i can't really be giving it an extremely high rating. for the value (less than $5 a bomber) it's worth it for any fans of the style. i mainly got it because everything i've had from steel toe has been excellent, and again, as far as the style goes - this is pretty excellent.
