4.33/5  rDev +16.1%
look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a 22 oz bottle into a weizen glass. 09/13/08.

Pours a bright golden-straw yellow color with about two fingers of bubbly white head. The head dropped quickly leaving no lacing. Strong spicy aroma with lots of clove, bubblegum, and banana.

Taste is similar to the aroma but better. Good wheat taste, pepper and clove, bubblegum, banana. A bit of light citrus as well. Not too sweet at all. This is one of the best tasting hefeweizens I've ever had. A very nice mix of flavors.

Feel is light-medium body and well-carbonated. Very clean, crisp, and refreshing. Drinkability is great. It's not heavy at all and it goes down so smoothly. A few of these would be great on a hot day.

Overall a pretty good hefeweizen. One of the best I've had.

2.76/5  rDev -26%
look: 3 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 2.75

First had: on tap at Legend

Cloudy golden pour with a small white head. Light aroma of wheat and banana esters. Tame, standard version of the style, toasted grains, notes of banana and clove, bubblegum, tiny herbal hop notes, slightly metallic finish. Light body, thin, drinkability detracted by general flavorlessness. Nothing really memorable here.

A day to drink quaffable style beers as I started around 1:00PM and the fireworks have not even started.Poured into a weizen glass a clouded light peach color with a decent sized rocky white head atop.Alot of banana and toasted malt in the nose,light lemon lingers.Flavors are banana-clove heavy with light toasted what malt underneath,I like the heavier creamy feel to the beer.It's a good warmer weather beer,very good for today.

This beer is not bad, but not very German like. More like blue moon. It is a filtered beer and a bit thin for my taste. It does not give a good mouthfeel. It has almost no head and no lacing on the glass. The taste is decent with a reasonable amount of clove and the smell is okay. As typical of American hefeweizen, it does not match up to the German ones.

look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

12 oz bottle poured into pint glass

A: Poured a light golden orange color, good and cloudy. One fingers worth of soapy white head that settles to a nice ring. Good lacing from start to finish.

S: Banana and clove right up front, with a touch of orange peel.

T: Follows the smell... More banana than most hefs I've had of late... mid palette is very yeasty and spicy with a touch a citrus. Finish is smooth and mild..

M: Mouthfeel is pretty light, but the smoothness of the brew makes this a little on the creamy side.. Good mix.

D: Very drinkable brew.... Good ABV and taste would make this a pretty good session beer.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: hazy, lazy orangy-gold. a massive plume of dense white has reasonable retention and some nice lacing.

S: black pepper, a serious clove, and nutmeg. some kind of wheat and munichy mix. floral in the finish.

T: the nutmeg and clove are prominent on the palate. a grainy wheatiness comes on to cloy onto the palate after the spice. a nip of alcohol.

M: a big time wheat body with an effervescent like carbonation.

D: great example of a german hefe from central va. very enjoyable beer.

4.08/5  rDev +9.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

A: Cloudy (unfiltered), orange-peach color, with about nice finger or so head. I poured... waited...swirled... then poured the rest, getting a massive amount of suds from the bottom. Nice!

S: Strong, fresh, smell of coriander, banana and clove. Phenol and esthers and then some!

T: Very muted, soft, and yeasty on the spice content. Fruity and bubblegum-like, with a tinge of candy sugar.

M: Not watery in any way, but still understated nevertheless. The carbonation was prickly, yet not too high, and the lacing was moderate... at best.

O: I've become somewhat of a fan of Legend. You can call me a homer if you want, but in my limited experience with them, I have yet to taste a bad brew from them.

4.18/5  rDev +12.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Poured into a white wine glass (that's all that was available) at The Cheese Shop in Williamsburg.

A: 3.5
S: 4.5
T: 4.0
M: 4.0
D: 4.5

Hazed yellow with a brown tint from the yeast. Diddn't get much head, but improper glassware will do that to ya. Nose is jam packed with clove. A good bit of banana and yeast as well. Taste is clove and banana again, but not as strong as the nose. Still quite tasty though. Medium body. Good carbonation and a good creaminess - super smooth. A very solid hefe.
