look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Hazy golden color with a two finger creamy off white head

Smell: Big spiced banana aromas with a sweet malt undertone.

Taste: Bold, fresh hefeweizen flavors. Banana and cloves play together nicely with an undertone of sweet malts, yeast, and hops

Mouthfeel: lighter body; Smooth with a moderately bitter finish

Overall: This is bolder tasting than most American wheat beers I've had which I appreciate. It has noticeably fresh hefe characteristics with a hoppy presence and a undertone of sweet malts. It's not your typical hefeweizen, however, I enjoyed it greatly on this summer afternoon. Cheers!

Weizen beers are not a style I go to very often but on hot days here in NC I do from time to time.Pours into a weizen glass a pale yellow color with not much haze,a thinner (for the style) white head atop,doesn't really have the look of a Bavarian wheat beer wich in Victory's defense it sorta isn't.Aromas of yeasty phenols and toasted cereal grain,there is some serious clove going on here.The flavors are dominated by the toasted grain with the phenols giving off some spice with hint of smoke,the feel is light and almost flat feeling wich doesn't fit the style.Kinda let down here I bought this thinking this was gonna be a hefe weizen with a bit of a punch but honestly.... not really.

3.98/5  rDev +1.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Poured from a capped 750 mL bottle into a glass tumbler. Moderate hand. No clear date, but barcode reads 30279-65922.

A: Hazy yellow body with a light orange tint. 1 finger of coarse, sudsy white head that quickly dissipates. Light lacing.

S: Sweet Belgian yeast. Wheat notes with touches of lemon, other citrus, coriander and vanilla. Candi sugar. Light grass and floral accents, especially as the head recedes. Banana.

T: Light spice from the yeast opens. Quickly yields to wheat-fueled sweetness and tartness. A noble-type hop bitterness slowly builds to close semi-dry. Light alcohol. Grassy hops linger in the aftertaste.

M: Moderate carbonation with a moderate body. Slightly oily with a somewhat misplaced heavy feeling on the palate.

O: Interesting amalgamation of styles that drinks damn nicely. Good wheat notes, good yeast strain and relatively assertive hopping for a hefe. I found it tasting better closer to the bottom of the bottle.

Prost!

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Appearance was a hazy straw, thick head of white foam, lots of carbonation visible in the beer itself.

Smell: lots of wheat, some belgian yeast. Very subtle floral notes.

Taste: wheat and belgian yeast upfront, some pine and floral flavor, and slightly metallic at the end.

Mouthfeel: smooth ay first, but then lots of carbonation and a chalky after feel become noticeable I a not overly pleasant way.

Overall. A solid effort by victory I the style, but im staying to think they should sick to what they do best- hoppy ales and pilsners.
