Availability: Rotating

Notes/Commercial Description:
This brew looks at weisbier and doesn't really stray from the classic themes. Moderate Phenols (clove), low noble hop aroma (Hallertau), slightly sweet flavors from Pilsner Malt, some haziness thrown from the proteins in the wheat malt, and a tartness intrinsic to the yeast. Yeast is one of four inherent properties of beer and German Weizen yeasts are some of the most world renowned. At just over 5% its a beer that's good to have as a friend.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

On-tap at the brewery.

A - Pours a golden-hay color, white head, thin ring, spotty lace.

S - Smells like a Hefe. Banana, malts, fruity sweetness. All very solid and straight-forward...very nice for the style.

T - Simliar to the nose. Lots of banana, wheat, cloves, sweet malty notes, and some slightly funky bready yeast notes.

M - Light body, good carbonation, slightly sweet/clean finish.

O - A solid representation of the style and super-easy to drink. Really liked this one and will have again. This is a great beer to start someone on if they're new to the craft beer scene...Civil Life is a great place to go for the n00b and experienced drinker alike!
