So glad to have found my notes from a late August 2012 visit; I enjoyed 2 half-liter glasses on a late summer afternoon. 'Pints' at the brewery are served in sturdy steins, tall and slender. Enjoyed one in the shady heat of the outside patio, another inside with dinner.

A: A cloudy and yeasty deep golden pour with a healthy white topping, dense & creamy. Lace doesn't stick much in this glass, maybe a wider or flared shape would help? Fairly steady carbonation.

S: Enticing bready/clove/bubble gum scent - as 'authentic' as any of the better US-versions of Germanic hefeweizens I've come across.

T: As good as the scent is, flavors are equally as good. Rich hay, dry grass maltiness, touch of lemon, ample clove/candy sweetness. Very likable.

M: Creamy, well-built and satisfying carbonation. Never too thin - just very refreshing and vibrant. Body is light-medium, the way a lower alcohol weissbier should be.

O: Quaffable. SO good on a hot day. As mentioned before, it's about as authentic a 'German' as I've run across in the US. Love the style and very much liked this version. Well done, Exile!

A- hefe yeast comes through with a little bread, some clove.

Smell: Clove, maybe some bubble gum.

Taste: Strong bubblegum and almost bandaid taste. There is a presence of some spice from the yeast.

Mouthfeel: Sharp from the combination of the high carb and the spice from the hefe yeast.

Overall: The bubblegum/band-aid flavors made this undrinkable. Just not for me. I normally like Hefe's so I was a little surprised.

Had this on tap at Exile. It pours an awesome orange hazy color. The smell of the beer is some orange, clove and banana. What I really enjoyed about this beer is the taste. It does not have a huge flavor explosion in your mouth like most hefe's, which I like. Lots of clove and banana in there with a touch of orange. Probably my favorite beer at Exile Brewery.
