Got a sample bottle from my distributor.
I wouldn't call this a hefeweiss, as it's classified. How about an English Pale?
Mine poured crystal clear and golden color, with a fluffy white head. Smell is subtle but has hints of butteryness and earthy hops.
It's a quaffer. Light body, mild flavour all around. A little diacetyl going on. It tastes like a British Summer Ale to me, assuming that's a category.
It's a limited time brew. Worth a shot.
