Poured from 12 oz. bottle into a Sam Adams "Perfect Pint" glass.

Appearance: Pours a very hazy golden orange with a lots of fast rising bubbles. Big three finger white head with good retention. Decent amount of lacing is left on the glass.

Smell: Has that distinctive Hef aroma of wheat and malts. Wheat grains and bready pale malts with good hints of cracker and biscuit. Nice hints of bubblegum, yeast, banana, clove, coriander, and a little white pepper. Also some good hints of citrus lemon and orange. Pretty nice wheat smell.

Taste: Like the smell, a crisp Hefeweizen taste of wheat and malts. Notes of bready biscuit, cereal grains, and cracker with some citrus lemon and orange. In the mix is a taste of banana, bubblegum, clove, yeast, and a little coriander and pepper. Somewhat sweet and tart, with a nice kick of spice. A nice tasting wheat beer.

Mouthfeel: Light to medium bodied with a medium to high amount of carbonation. Crisp, spicy, and somewhat tart. Goes down very easy.

Overall: A good take on the Hefeweizen style. Some nice spice and citrus flavors.

Had a tap in a plastic pint glass...note to self: I am reviewing the style (IOW, Dave, you do not like hefeweizens!).

A=Rich, darker golden color with nice fluffy white foam.

S=Citrus, with a hint of wheat.

T=As hefeweizens go, this was rather robust...strong citrus and wheat tastes...good for the style.

M=Seemed about right, but was rather hard for me to drink...might have been due to the style, but, more likely, due to the overwhelming flavors.

O=Great representation of the style, I believe.

Had on tap at the brewery, One of the best Hefe's I've had in along time. Very prominent banana flavor along with nice balance of clove and wheat along with just a hint of citrus. Just got back from touring the brewery It's a small operation but man do they turn out some good quality brews and all of their special release brews are done in Oak Kegs.

Served in a Chicago Bears shaker pint glass.

So Capital nixed the Summer Fest idea in favor of a hef. Good choice, if you ask me (which no one did). Anyway, this stuff pours a cloudy auburn topped by a finger of lightly off-white foam. The nose comprises orange zest, mild banana, a hint of brown sugar, and a pinch of clove. The taste brings in more of the same, with the orange shining brightly amongst a cloud of pleasant spices. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a smooth, nearly creamy feel. Overall, a damn fine hef. 'Nuff said.

Capital's new Summer seasonal and a perfect style. Cap hasn't made a Weizen in quite some time, I hope it's as good as it used to be -- even as a Krystalweizen, which this new one is not.

A -- Hazy, pale straw color with a sudsy, somewhat lackluster, white head -- a more vigorous pour with the swish of sediment remedies the lackluster head a little.

S -- Wonderful bubblegum & light clove phenols with the mildest of wheat malt peeking through. Also from the vigorous pour comes some light DMS.

T -- Light clove and bubblegum flavors up front with a mildly tart finish and some light bready malt making up the backbone. Aftertaste is that creamy vanilla character so common in a good Weizen, with some light peppery, clove characters, even some pleasant tart citrus.

M -- Soft mouthfeel with some creaminess and light spritziness from carbonation. Body is light.

O -- Homerun for the style -- right up there with its neighbor Dancing Man. Worth seeking out if you like a good Bavarian Weizen.

The new summer seasonal (and I'm glad to see a hefeweizen back from Capital) pours hazy yellow with a thick creamy white head that diminishes to thin skim and leaves nice lacing along the glass. The aroma is quite pleasant, nice balance of classic banana esters and phenolic cloves, with sweet wheat malt and hints of citrus. The flavor is a marriage of sweet malts, crisp wheat, cloves, and just enough of a dry finish for balance. The mouthfeel is medium-light, boosted by the medium-high carbonation, appropriately so. Overall a very well crafted hefeweizen, pick some up!
