12 oz. bottle into a weizen glass
Pours a hazy golden orange color with a one and a half inch white head sitting atop. Retention is really good and lots of thick lacing is left down the entire glass.
Aroma is citrusy, a bit of orange and a touch of grapefruit. A slight floral touch too. Some breadiness and light banana. A bit of spiciness as well in the back.
Taste has a bit of malty sweetness up front with breadiness coming through as well. Banana, orange, and grapefruit hoppiness in the middle with some clovey spice towards the end to round it out.
Mouthfeel is medium-light, it comes across slightly flat for some reason, odd since there definitely seems to be a lot of carbonation. It's smooth and refreshing though, but that bit of flatness stops it from being rated any higher.
Overall a very enjoyable beer but I think I prefer the traditional Hefeweizen over ones with American hops. Would be a good one for the hophead who refuses to drink the wheats because they're not hoppy enough.
