From BeerAdvocate Magazine #73 (Feb 2013):

What do you get when you cross a German Hefeweizen and a Belgian Witbier? This. While both styles focus on wheat and yeast, we get coriander and citrus peel common in Wits, and of course some like to garnish their Hefes with lemon. Does it work? It’s a little rough around the edges, but yes.

STYLE: Hefeweizen Hybrid
ABV: 5.2%
AVAILABILITY: Year-round

LOOK: Cloudy orange-amber, thin lacing

SMELL: Coriander, straw, orange rind

TASTE: Super creamy, wheat tannins, tea, coriander, fruity, gummy, green banana, honey, crackery, dry

Poured from the can into a wheat ale glass.

Deep orange body to dull yellow brass body. Opaque with small carbonation, and a big fluffy white tall three finger head, and minimal retention. Sticks around for a bit and leaves some hugging pill like lacing.

Real strong hefeweizen like aroma. Thick esters and lots of lemon and sharp clove. A bit of interesting peanut butter qualities and hints of mellon cantaloupe as well. Quite impressive and big, very dense and large estery smelling brew.

Real interesting palate. Taste comes out more candied orange with a witbier like freshness and simple orange sweetness. Gone it seems are the hefe character and it's turned to witbier before my palate, and a decent one at that. Fresh chewy body, with a good amount of citrus and a hint of banana just wants to sneak out. Mild phenolic like qualities of clove really noticeable with some light and tight carbonation.

What a neat brew. Smells like a hefeweizen but tastes like a Belgian witbier, and a real good one at that.
