4.5/5  rDev +26.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

The brew pours a gorgeous cloudy honey colored body topped with a creamy white head that hangs on strong.

The aroma is everything you should expect for this style; cloves, bubble gum, banana bread, cotton candy, with a touch of sugary apple tart.

The flavor is close to the nose with a hint of juicy lemon on the tail end. We have a light hop presence here, just perfect.

The mouthfeel is smooth with moderate carbonation.

Overall this is great hefeweizen, and I look forward to drinking this all summer long, and then some.

A: A cloudy golden pour with a huge effervescent white head on top. Minimal lacing but decent retention.

S: Big wheat presence with lots of cloves and bubblegum from the yeast.

T: Super clean and smooth wheat. Pleasant subtle citrus fruitiness, oranges and lemons mainly.

M: Light and highly carbonated.

O: Very simple and clean hefe. Nothing spectacular or complex, just a great drinking simple wheat beer.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Pours a cloudy, pale golden color. Beautiful, thick, fluffy four finger head from the pour. Slowly dissipates to one finger. Thick lacing coats the sides of the glass. Retention is very good. This one looks fantastic.

S: Ho hum. Faint orange zest, bready malt. Decent, but lacking in punch. Bit of a grainy profile.

T: Decent. Banana mash, candied orange. A slightly tangy and grainy finish, but the main body of the beer is quite solid. Not the most complex of Hefes, though.

M: Very good. Carbonation is fine. Nice creamy mouthfeel. Only nit is that the finish is a little grainy and sweet.

O: Fairly standard, but good nonetheless. A bit of a "thinness" to this one and some unusual flavors in the finish keep me from giving it a better score. Happy to support the cause for clean water, though.
