Poured a gorgeous cloudy yellow with a thin ring of white head. It looked quite nice, but it was lacking a lot of the normal hefeweizen head, the body however looked excellent. Scents of clove, orange blossoms, yeasty wheat bread and sweet floral aromas. It was a delicate aroma profile, but very nice, quite appetizing and very appealing. Taste began with yeasty wheat bread and wheat cracker, but quickly the wheat was joined by notes of pear, apricot, mild floral hops, sweet spices, particularly clove, and a bit of honey, which became more prominent on the finish and aftertaste. This beer surprises you with it's delicate, yet complex flavor profile. It's excellent. Mouthfeel is light bodied with high carbonation and a drying finish. True to style for a hefeweizen. Overall this is an excellent hefeweizen. It's got the bones of the style, as well as a complexity to it's flavor that puts it easily on par with Weihenstephaner. Well worth drinking.

11.2oz bottle poured into flute glass
look is cloudy and orange, no surprise there. as soon as i poured the beer, there was the undeniable scent of sugar cookie dough in the air. the taste is less on the cookie dough, but also less on everything: it's crisp and has good bite (light feel), but only faint hefe flavors - mostly cookie dough.
disappointed in this one, maybe it was a bad bottle.
