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

A - Not a bad looking Hefeweizen it has a nice golden color with plenty of haze and a 1/2 an inch of sticky white head.

S - Lemon zest, crisp fruity yeasts and a touch of coriander for spice.

T - Well it has a clean yeast taste, mild lemon and bubblegum with a finish of zesty coriander spice. In other words it's good.

M - Light to medium easy to sip on.

Overall I missed this offering last year and was glad to try this summer treat. Worth picking up for the style.

A: half finger head with nice lacing on a murky pale golden body.

S: clove, vanilla, pineapple/banana citrus and wheat.

T: clove, lemon custard, wheat, slight musty grains and peppery zest.

M: light body and very high carbonation, definitely too much. crisp.

Overall: not too bad. This isnt a genre which will dazzle you no matter how good the beer is but this is definitly one of the better ones out there.

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

A - Pours with one and a half fingers of white foam on top of a hazy, golden body. The foam settles at a moderate pace and leaves nice lace.

S - An aroma of clove, spicy wheat, vanilla and some light sulfur.

T - Thick, creamy wheat up front with a touch of acidity. Coriander, clove, and pepper in the middle with more wheat, spicy hops, and a touch of vanilla in the finish.

M - A thick, almost chewy body, moderately high carbonation, and a balanced finish.

D - Not bad, the thick mouthfeel is quite nice and while the yeast character is not the best it is still quite drinkable.

12oz. bottle poured into a Hefe glass.

A- a straw yellow/gold, with a finger of puffy white head.

S- very yeasty, with spices, cloves, and banana.

T- for the abundance of smell, the taste is fairly muted. Some wheat, spices, and a hint of citrus. The yeasty-ness just isn't as forward as I would like.

S- Very smooth on the palette, a little more carbonation than most. A little drying on the finish.

O- An overall middle of the road Hefe.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.75

Poured into a Samuel Smith commemorative glass. No freshness date.

A- Pours a hazy straw color with a 1/2 inch head that retains well before becoming an 1/8 inch of head and displays thick bunches of fluffy lacing.

S- Yeasty with a bit of barnyard funk plus notes of citrus and banana.

T- Sweet rush of vibrant banana and yeast. The citrus element takes a back seat to the main attraction of wheat and spices. A tiny tinge of alcohol is present but doesn't get in the way of enjoyment. Bitterness is at a minimum. Notes of vanilla and bubble gum.

M- Soft, rich and incredibly smooth. Medium-high carbonation brings life to the body. Ever-so-slightly tart.

O- Probably my favorite Hefeweizen thus far. I always look forward to it coming out every year.

Notes from 4/6/12

Cloudy, orange-amber gold body with a slim head that doesn't stick around. A thin, white, soapy rim remains.

Bright and cool clove & banana aroma. Warm esters. Floral. Pleasant in the nose.

Deliciously crisp up front with fruity yeast, over-ripe banana and wheat bread. Wood-like tone far in the back end.

This brew throws long and dry on the taste buds. What I discern to be some booze lingers in a friendly way. Exceptional!

Notes: quite possibly the tastiest hefeweizen I've had to date. I threw this down with pleasure in no time.

When this beer was poured, it has a hazy straw colored body with not head or lace. The smell has a little lemon flavor and some banana comes through. The taste is grainey and clove come through strong. The moouth feel is nice and crisp, overall i say this is a good beer.
