Pours a semi-clear yellow-gold color with smooth white head and spotty lacing. Lots of carbonation striving for the top of the glass. Aroma, well, is like smelling the tail end of an agitated skunk that sat in a bowl of rotten lemons. Let's hope the taste is better. Taste is much much better than the smell, with flavors of tart lemon and other assorted citrus coming forth and a tartness that is very nice. Malt takes a backseat to the refreshing lemony taste. Mouthfeel is very nice with lots of carbonation and this is one smooth beer !!

Looking : pillowy, creamy head with lots of lace and stark white standing at 2 fingers tall. Body is more transparent than most Hefeweizens and has almost no opacity. Golden color. Docking points for low opacity.

Smelling : full of fruity esters - cling peaches, fruit cocktail, dirty wheat, faint alcohol. "Cloudy"/"floaty" smelling like most genuine hefeweizen beers.

Tasting : the frontside is watery and lacking in flavor, like a watered down ligh beer. When the beer hits the back of the throat the flavors start to come through, and though underwhelming they are appropriate. Fruity, with orange and peach, some light cinnamon, and wheat. By and large however, the beer is greatly lacking in flavor and is more washed out than most.

Feelings : typical light bodied creaminess that pushes medium body territory, a carbonated zing zaps it to life, and it ends clean.

Overall impressions : ...not too. It's a bit watery for a Hefeweizen and would have preferred more flavor. While still delicious, it is rather subpar. I'll be skipping this next time.
