3.9/5  rDev -3.5%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Appearance: Burnt darker orange color. Finger worth of head on the pour which was present while drinking. Some random scattered lacing while drinking. Below average active carbonation while drinking.

Smell: Spices which mesh well with accents of cloves hit the nose first. The peppery spices continue to dominate throughout. A rich wheat body plays very well off the spices, bringing each out more.

Taste: Light bubbly fruit and earthy spices jump on the palate first. A pleasant, airy wheat body gives this brew a easy drinking, refreshing feeling. The back end falls off a little but plenty of spice and cloves round out the back end enough to satisfy.

Mouthfeel: Very clean crisp mouthfeel. A light dryness is balanced but the sweeter malt tones which continue to buzz on the palate.

Overall: An excellent Hefe with all the characteristics one would look for with added layers of complexity. Everything plays together so well in this brew. Refreshing and easy drinking.

3.95/5  rDev -2.2%
look: 5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Pours a beautiful golden color with a thick, rich head of foam, settling to about 1 cm. Picture perfect Hefeweizen; it looks quite delicious.
Smell: Very slight smell. It is slightly citrusy, but I don't really smell much else. When it warms a but, a slight acrid wheat smell emerges.
Taste: Clean, refreshing taste. It is a bit more neutral than I would like, but it is extremely refreshing and leaves little aftertaste.
Mouth-feel: Perfectly carbonated and pleasant. Spritzy and true to style.
Overall: I like this beer. I wish it had a bit more flavor, but, in an odd way, I'm willing to overlook that because it is so good in the other categories. Come summertime (and the sweltering temperatures), I will definately stock a few of these in the fridge.

4.08/5  rDev +1%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Poured into a Celebrator pokal. Pours a slightly hazy golden amber with a thin white head that dissipates slowly to a ring around the glass with slippery lacing. Aroma of sweet wheat and bready yeast, a hint of clove. Flavor is sweet wheat, light banana and clove, lightly biscuity. Finishes with semi-dry wheat and a pleasant very light fruit ester flavor with clove that leaves a very pleasant aftertaste. Light to medium bodied with peppery active carbonation. A very nicely made hefeweizen that hits all the right notes for the style and has its own distinct light fruit flavor in the finish. Very nice and worth revisiting.

3.55/5  rDev -12.1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

appearance: Ah the beautiful cloudiness of a good wiesbeir. A great representative of the type. Creamy head

smell: Sweet but subtle a nice smell but could be more pronounce

taste: I must say I think it is an average tasting weissbeir. Not knocking my socks off. Semi sweet but nothing I can say is fantastic

mouthfeel: Once again par mouthfeel. Nothing special but overall good

overall: Would I drink it again, sure, would I go out of my way to buy it again, no
