Pours an orange to copper color in a weizen glass with a nice head that dissipates slowly leaving a little lacing down the glass.

Smell is of spice, clove, orange and banana. Smell is not overpowering but there is enough that you can appreciate it.

Taste is of the spices and clove with the orange and banana coming in during the middle of the taste then a biscuity bread taste at the end.

Mouthfeel is a little watery but with enough body to appreciate. Carbonation was decent when I poured the beer but was pretty tame by the end of the glass.

Overall, a really nice beer but nothing to write home about. I like the beer and would be willing to buy it again if I was looking for a craft Hefeweizen.

Sweetwater Waterkeeper Hefeweizen has a thin, white head (small shelf glass), a very hazy (powdery sediment suspended throughout), yellow-gold appearance, bubble streams, and a small amount of lacing left behind on the glass. The aroma is of spiced white bread, coriander, and a touch of lemon peel. Taste is of those elements, with some banana pudding, orange chutney, a shade of hop bitterness, and white pepper. Mouthfeel is medium and fluffy, and Sweetwater Waterkeeper finishes dry, easy going, and refreshing.
