look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Pint glass poured from a growler from Growl Movement in S.Salem. $10 a growler. Pours a hazy ,bright yellow with a nice sized thick creamy white head. Nice fresh banana,spice and bread aromas. Taste similar to aroma with a bit of summer fruit thrown in. Kinda comes up short in the palate..starts of fine but gets a wee bit watery by the end. But overall for a 80-90 degree day its fine stuff

Great color but my 16oz can felt a little low on head. Smells of tropical fruit. Primarily pineapple. Tastes more of pineapple but with a more tang like passion fruit. The fruit taste fades with a mild slightly dry leafy hop flavor and a whole lot of yeasty funk. Slight bit heavy on the yeastiness but I love the tropical fruitiness. The beer is well balanced, mellow and easy drinking. Excellent hefe, but doesn't beat weihenstephaner.

Served from a growler into a weizen glass.

A- Poured a hazy bright golden color with big fluffy bright white head that left some splashy lace.

S- Tangy banana and clove, slightly citrusy, and traditional.

T- Big tangy banana notes, big bright and sparkling citrusy notes, and quite a bit of clove and spice character.

M- Pretty smooth, fizzy and sparkling carbonation, light bodied, very refreshing, and not dry.

O- This is a really nice refreshing, tangy, juicy, and citrusy hefeweizen, which are all some of my favorite qualities in the style.

The best Hef I ever tasted. Got it at the taproom, poured into a tall hef glass

A: Perfect cloudy gold, impeccable 1 inch off-white head.

S: Smells like a Hef

T: Drinkability is high, Notes of bananas and cloves (not overpowering though). Doesn't have that hef yeast after taste that im used to. Its good, real good

M: Creamy, not too light

O: The best best Hef ive ever had. Crazy that i am in love with it, since I am usually an IPA, Sour, Belgian drinker
