look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.25

A - A small white head of foam on top of a clear, golden body. The head settles quickly and leaves little lace.

S - Spicy hops, musty wheat, and a bit of pepper.

T - Bready malt up front with slightly fruity yeast in the middle. Finishes with an odd, soda water like quality and a touch of tartness.

M - Medium body, moderately high carbonation, and a dry finish.

D - weird, one dimensional and a bit bland. I'm not sure what the idea was here, but it really isn't working for me.

Big thanks to alexgash from BA for the bottle!
Cloudy orange colored pour with a big lasting meringue like head. Thick wheaty, banana flavor with lots of clovey yeast smell too. Very big strong hef smell with a light lemony wheatiness as well. Taste is strong and full bodied with the same flavors. Very good quality hefeweizen but just a style i'm style growing to like slowly.

look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

12oz. bottle poured into a pint glass.

A. Golden Yellow, slightly cloudy with substantial head

S. Bananna, cloves, sweet wheat, coriander.

T. Banana and clove flavors come first, changing to a spicy wheaty flavor, some citrus and hints of alcohol come through in the finish

M. Light mouthfeel and carbonation is a little high for my liking.

O. Pretty good for a higher abv heffeweizen, but the overall does not hold up to a lot of the German brewed Heffeweizens available.

A - Golden orange and very hazy. Thick, bubbly head that fades quickly to about one finger and then holds steady throughout the drink. Leaves very small smatterings of bubbly lace.

S - Very wheaty aroma with hints of banana. Very sweet aroma. Also some hints of bubble gum. No real spiciness like that which is often found in Hefeweizens.

T - Somewhat grainy initially before an overwhelming bubble gum taste takes over. Hints of banana as well but bubble gum is the primary taste. Just not the right profile that I look for in hefes.

M/D - Light to medium bodied. A little on the thin side. A passable hefe/wheat, but not a great one.
