4.33/5  rDev +2.6%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A - 4.0 - A gentle pour yields a hazy, golden, straw-colored body with a ton of frothy, pure-white head (two or three finger’s width). Certainly glad I didn’t pour this one whimsically, or I easily would have lost some to my desktop. Moderate retention and lacing for the style.

S - 4.0 - Aroma is of wheat, straw, a bit of grass, lemon citrus, clove, a hint of banana, and some orange. Not as much banana and/or clove than anticipated, but rather a bit more floral and citrusy. Not too shabby.

T - 4.5 - Taste is great, with a lot more banana and clove coming through here. Straw, wheat, orange, lemon and even a bit of sweet, candied mango come through. A good amount of fruity citrus and light grains are to be had.

M - 4.0 - Mouthfeel is light, crisp, and amply carbonated for a prickly and refreshing drink. Finish is on the dry side, with a bit of lingering clove.

O - 4.5 - Overall, this is a great, refreshing hef that I’ll gladly drink anytime. I drove ~40 min across the border into WI to pick up a sixer of this (and some other NG stuff) and I really wish I had grabbed more. Perhaps I’ll be making the drive again sooner than I thought.

Damn, I think this qualifies as an imperial hefe. At least it does in my book. And to clarify: It's an amplified hefeweizen that stays dry without the heavier body and fruitier flavors of a weizenbock. There's a big spicy clove aroma with hints of earthy, rustic bread and orange peel. The flavor gets fruitier, balancing a milder peppery spice level with touches of banana and berry with a malty edge of toast. The beer continues with little hits of vanilla and milky caramel. Man, what a beer. This is likely the best German wheat I've had and on par with a great Belgian tripel.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

A. Cloudy golden orange in color. 2 fingers of creamy white head that sits like a pillow on the beer. Some lacing but not as much as I'd expect given the head. None the less, this looks great

S. Clove, banana and bubble gum. Lots of the Belgian ester yeast

T. Strong taste of over-ripe banana. Clove spice. Bubble gum is present though not as much as the nose would suggest.

M. Light to medium body. Creamy mouth feel with the slightest alcohol tinge on the back end. dry finish

O. Normally I don't care for hefes but this one is quite tasty. I could see myself buying a 6 pack to enjoy in the summer heat.

this thing smells like grapes. a little sourdough bread smell too.

has a good classic german wheat beer taste. a little bit sweet. but it has some bruised fruit taste.

easy to drink like most wheat beers , but very filling. a satisfying beer . drink it on an empty stomach.
