12oz. bottle poured into my Hacker-Pschorr hefe glass
A- straw yellow, with a nearly pure white fluffy head. Head dissipates quickly. No lacing.
S- Wheat malt, with definite lemon. The lemon just doesn't quite come off as natural.
T- Straight forward, no nonsense hefeweisen with a lemony twist. Dry on the finish.
M- Slight fizz from some tight carbonation. Really quite creamy and nice on the palette as well. Ends dry, and slightly astringent from the lemon.
O- Pleasent, but not great. Could use more focus on the wheat malt bill, but on a summer day, this is welcome.
