On tap at the brewpub on 7/24/12

My intention was to review only the Big Red IPA but after my wife pointed out that the Raspberry Blonde Ale was made by dumping raspberry syrup into a pint glass and then pouring the regular Blonde Ale into the glass. I decided right there to tick-up the tasting flight by allowing only one line from my steno pad to each beer.

Irresponsibly-deserved Tick #8

A) Cloudy, golden orange. Short foam with ring retention.

S) Sweet banana and wheat. Clove overtones.

T) Dull taste of timid wheat and clove.

M) Thin, watery feel with low carbonation.

On tap at the Ram.

(A)- Pours a cloudy goldenrod color. Some tan froth.

(S)- A yeasty biscuit with lemon and banana.

(T)- Similar to the smell. Straightforward, but a nice combo of biscuit, lemon, and banana.

(M)- A good carbonation level. A nice smooth balance to it as well.

(D)- Quite the solid Hefe. Nothing fancy, but just an easy drinking enjoyable beer. Maybe one of their best.

Served in a shaker pint glass at the brewpub.

My father seemed to really enjoy this, so in I shall dive as well. It pours a hazed pale lemonade topped by a finger of white micro-foam. The nose comprises lemon zest, coriander, cardamom, banana, cracked pepper, and light clove. The taste beats to pretty much the same drummer, though the pepper is toned down just a little bit. The body is light, with a light moderate carbonation and a fairly crisp finish. Overall, a nice little hefe, just a bit too airy for greatness, but it is very drinkable and thoroughly enjoyable.

Pours an insanely cloudy peachy gold, easily one of the cloudiest hefe's I've seen, with a thick white head and some nice lacing. Smell is all hefe, lots of banana and clove, with nice yeastiness. Taste is very banana, with yeast, cloves and a spicy bitter finish. Mouthfeel is medium to full bodied, pretty thick for a hefeweizen, high carbonation, very smooth and refreshing. An exceptional hefeweizen, I was very surprised and pleased with this one, amazingly good.
