A dark Hefeweizen, a traditional German style of beer that pairs wheat malt with a yeast that contributes flavours of clove and banana. Remarkably light but with a slight sweetness.

Bottle and on tap at the brewery - pours a clouded deep amber with a 1 finger cap. Big clove and banana in the aroma if you get it fresh. Very decent rendition of Schneider tap 5 with a little less alcohol. Refreshing and flavourful -good solid locally crafted brew.

Delighted that Forked River is now fully operational, but this bottle is not up to the same standard as their other two beers. It was purchased at the brewery last weekend and tastes fresh, but has almost no carbonation. Pours a hazy and amber/brown and would be attractive for the style with even a minimal head. Mouthfeel is thin, as expected by the pleasantly low ABV, but this bottle is nigh "flat".

Aroma of cloves, banana and "wheat yeast", very suited to this Germanic style. Flavour is mild and would appeal to transitioning wheat beer fans. It is well balanced and inoffensive, although again lacking the "character" of the two other beers tried on tap and in bottle last week-end.

Will definitely try any future batch again, but this specific bottle was quite disappointing.
