ive really started to like hefeweizen's lately so when i saw this one i picked it up- it says it benefits the "waterkeeper alliance." i havn't ever heard of the waterkeeper, but bc of this beer i looked it up- so it succeeded in raising my awareness. also this isnt a bad beer either. it has all the crispness and spiciness of a hefeweizen and it supports a good cause- cant go wrong with that.

3.63/5  rDev +2.8%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Appearance: pale golden yellow; effervescent; big frothy long lasting white head

Smell: smells great; normal Hefeweizen notes, but something is a little off for the style. Can't figure out what it is; smells good though

Taste: Good malty start with Hefeweizen yeast notes; some banana, clove and citrus, too. But finishes with a bit of cream corn flavor; throws it off, but the beer is still tasty

Mouthfeel: fairly malty for the style with a bit more lingering sweetness than normal for the style

Remarks: you can tell it's not a true Bavarian Hefeweizen, but I liked it pretty good; I'd definitely buy it again

3.68/5  rDev +4.2%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Appearance- Yellow, hay colored with a small head and slight retention. Not as hazy as your standard hefeweizen.

Smell- Light smell with banana in the forefront and some clove.

Taste- Well balanced with no flavor completely dominating the palate. Banana and wheat in the forefront.

Mouthfeel- Light body with a somewhat sour aftertaste that is not unpleasant.

Overall- A well balanced and drinkable hefeweizen. A very solid beer that I will certainly buy again.
