As a lover of wheat beers, especially on a sunny day, i was pleasantly surprised by how great this beer is.

Many breweries make attempts at Hefes but few deliver like this one does.

I t tastes as good as it looks and smells as good as it tastes. With summer coming, I see a lot of these in my future.

Standard hazy burnt orange color, not much head on this pour. Aroma is light banana clove. Very complete and balanced. Taste is similar. Everything you look for in a hefeweizen yet no one steals the show. Mouthfeel is fantastic. Particularly light yet still full and flavorful. Slight creaminess. This is not a style I particularly like but this is a beer I would happily drink again and again. Overall great balance and a very thoughtful and delicious approach to a style that can often be one dimensional.

On tap at Tony's Darts Away in Burbank, CA.

Pours a murky golden color with a 1/2 inch foamy off-white head that fades to nothing. Small streaks of lace line the glass on the drink down. The smell and taste of this one are pretty much the same with wheat, spices, banana, and bubble gum. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp and clean mouthfeel. Overall, this is a refreshing and easy to drink hefeweizen. Good stuff.

A-cloudy, yellow, billowing white head with some filthy lacing....proper hefe!

S-Clove, banana, bubble gum but neither of the three in abundance, or to the point that I wished it was 'more balanced'...they hit the esters just right on this one.

T-Nice and fluffy, just a tad of spice from the phenols, more clove, some gum and a nice little bit of hop kick in the finish. THIS was another one of those beers that just went down too easily.

M-Another balanced, enjoyable and firm feel from GR...can't say I'd change a thing on this hefe...I havn't enjoyed this style for a while now outside of Weihenstephaner...glad there is a new kid in town.

O-Impressive, and enjoyable. I will be giving these guys a lot of money in the future :(

Hazy, golden orange and and yellow with a thick white head, though, surprisingly, it doesn't leave much lace at all on the glass.

Pleasant and somewhat simple aroma: light banana and clove with a bit of wheat. Not as strong or powerful as my favorite within this style.

Light banana, clove, a hint of black pepper, and a little pear combine for a pleasing, accessible flavor. The flavors aren't quite as big and bold as I would prefer, even within style, but I think this is a very accessible and drinkable hefeweizen.

Medium mouthfeel with ample carbonation.

I think Golden Road accomplished exactly what they sought to do with this beer: an accessible, incredibly drinkable, relatively low-alcohol, flavorful hefeweizen.
