Had it from the brewery. Great German style hefe, true to style. Not as good as kellerweiss (could be due to serving type, bottles are better for this style)

I hope Sam continues to make this, it's a winner. And to the other reviewer, the clove and other flavors are from the yeast. I'm 99.99% sure they dont use any adjuncts in this beer.

Served at the end of a tour on May 27th 2010. The tour guide said it was one of two new brews they were experimenting with before choosing which one to introduce. Called it a "German-style wheat beer" as he introduced it.

A - Poured into a 7 oz tasting glass with 1 finger of pure white head. Strong yellow body with deep haze. No visible sedimentation or carbonation.

S - Strong smells of lemon and clove.

T - Lemon, banana, clove, and even a slight vanilla. Very refreshing and complex. Not much in the way of hop bitterness, however. After 7oz, I was almost overwhelmed by the sweetness. No alcohol taste or heat either. In my opinion, it needs a little bit of an edge to round out the spicy sweetness.

MF - Smooth, but slightly overcarbonated. Good for the style.

D - It was hard to judge the drinkability on such a small sample, but the lack of hop bitterness and the tad bit of overcarbonation subtract from the overall good experience.

I'm a bit curious as to why they call this a hefeweizen. To my knowledge, if they brew it with any spices, such as the cloves that I tasted and the tour guide touted, German beer purity laws prohibit the hefeweizen name. If anything, I think this should be called a Belgian style witbier. But I'm not going to argue with Jim Koch.

Serving type: on-tap
