Stuck on the couch here with a busted leg.
Pours a medium murky hay-orange tone color. Head is medium-thick, lightly chunky. Decent amount of carbonation streams throughout the brew. Pretty decent appearance.
Smells of all the great Hefe' s is not here. This is for sure an American wheat.Light straw, watery, orange,some grassiness , but really lacking in real depth or complexity. Finishes with a bit of straw, touch of hops, that's about it.
Flavor is also very light, a bit of creaminess from the wheat is appreciated. Upfront lightly citrus, but finishes with a toasted grain flavor I normally find in German Zwickel beer. The toasted character is not prominent in the nose but really adds a nutty complexity not anticipated in the flavor.None of the banana/clove/cream/ of a real Hefe, but the light floral nutty character is very similar to a good musty Keller bier, so It's really growing on me.
Mouth feel is fairly light, carbonation could use a slight boost. At times feeling a bit flat on the palate.
Overall decent, flavor is actually much better than the aromatics.
