3.71/5  rDev +3.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

From a 500 ml bottle (code says 9313N09) into a hefe glass.

A-A normal pour produces a thin head of barely one finger of white foam. The head drops quickly to a cap that hangs around for a bit. The brew is a bit dull looking with a dijon mustard hue as a result of the yeast.

S-The smell is surprisingly sharp and grassy for a hefe. There is very little clove/banana going on here. Just a bit of lemon and grain.

T-The taste is also light on the banana/clove yeast, but there is a bit of doughy yeast. The main flavor remains a grainy lemon with a bit of astringent grass/straw. It is certainly different from many hefes, but not entirely unpleasant...almost pils like at times.

M-The feel is a bit watery with soft, moderate carbonation and a medium heft. It is really drinkable, however, which is what I want in a hefe.

O-This is a pretty mediocre beer but it has some interesting characteristics. The graininess and lack of typical hefe yeast flavors is disappointing, but the feel is pretty good and goes a long way towards making up for the lackluster smell and taste. Maybe it is the "organic" label working into my subconscious, but I feel like this beer actually tastes like the ingredients that go into it, and not like some magical potion. Weird.

look: 3.5 | smell: 2.25 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 2.75

Poured from a 500ml bottle into a large weizen glass in high elevation Kalispell, Mont. Reviewed live.

A- Three-finger white head with decent retention. Very clean looking head with a nice, cloudy, orange body. I was expecting it to look worse. So that's a nice thing to see. Loses points for lack of lacing.

S- Has the usual trappings of a hef, with the unfortunate nose of grass. Some cloves and banana.

T- Some hef characteristics. Relatively thin flavor.

M- Medium carbonation but a pretty light-bodied beer. Finishes sticky.

O- Look was above average, the beer fell after that though.

500ml bottle with no date. really cool label design, in my opinion. shows the ancient dudes who started the brewery? swirled into a flute glass

look is a very cloudy orange wheat color. smell is light and yeasty. taste is light and refreshing wheat, with lemon and sweet malt.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Presentation: 500mL brown bottle, served in a weizen glass.

Appearance: Develops a two finger head that goes down a bit and then stays there. It has a cloudy, pale yellow color.

Smell: The aroma has a refreshing fruit zest character to it, of lemon mainly. There's also faint malt, hop and yeast scents in the background.

Taste: Zesty citrus flavor mixed with some hop bitterness and a hint of malt sweetness. All of this followed up by a bit of yeast chalkiness in the background.

Mouthfeel: Dry, light, and refreshing, with little carbonation.

Overall: Just because it has a refreshing character, doesn't mean it's still not a flavorful beer. On the contrary, tt's great because it's versatile. You can just enjoy it on it's own, and really get into it, or just sip on it to cool down without giving it much though. You can also have it with food and it won't be a distraction, but it'll be more interesting than your average ale or lager. Just a good all around beer.
