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.

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.

Appearance - light for a hefeweizen, a straw-yellow and very cloudy. About a quarter inch head, dissipates quickly. The retention didn't last long as I drank the glass

Smell - citrusy, more sour smelling than other hefeweizens I've had

Taste - like the smell, this beer seems to have a sour taste that lingers. Also the normal bready, banana-like tastes that are common of hefeweizens

Mouthfeel - pretty light for the style, but still pretty smooth. The carbonation was strange for a hefe, it seemed more like I was drinking an American lager

Overall - a decent hefeweizen, definitely different from most that I've had. I feel like the citrus of the beer was overwhelming to the normal hefeweizen flavors. Also, I feel like the lightness was a disadvantage as compared to others.

The palest Hefeweizen ever. Quite an attractive foam that clings to the tall glass. A pleasant sudsy mouthfeel. Lemony flavor without being too sharp. A slight bready flavor, I swear it's oyster crackers. Even kind of metallic. No hint of banana or clove in the nose.

On the whole, quite quaffable, but rather anemic for a Hefeweizen. I've had Witbiers with more German esters. The 750 ml bottles showed up at the non-mainstream Sprouts Market in San Diego. New label advertising the alleged organic certification seems to be the draw.

A very dull / pale pour. Very little head. Looks almost watered down.

Has a zesty fruity aroma. Tastes ver dry, yeasty with a lemon finish. Not a'beer worth savoring. However, an easy beer to drink with a hefty meal. After taste is minimal with lemon being the dominant flavor
