This beer was a buttery, diacetyl mess. Almost none of the esters or phenolics I would expect from a decent German wheat. Had to pour out a third of the bottle. Might be personal taste, maybe they're going for that buttery taste, but its just not good.

Pours slightly hazy orange, lots of light, off-white foam. Weirdly soapy aroma; orange in the flavor plus a touch of spice. (The orange taste notes make me think the soapiness in the aroma was a citrus note that just got weird). Mouthfeel of a much lighter beer- crisp and cool, refreshing.

Has a darker murky orange color with decent 2 finger head. A little formidable looking for a Hefe

Smell - Very bready with a tingle of banana. Actually its very nice and not too sweet.

Taste - It's very well balance and smooth going down. Flavors are bready, malty mostly and a tinge of sweetness. A little crisp in the finish but very faint.

Mouthfeel - very full bodied and buttery for a light 5.3% brew.

Overall - This is a respectable and very German tasting Hefeweizen. Flavoring is a tad lackluster to me but overall this is a pleasant and sessionable German beer to go to on occasion. There are better offerings of the style out there but this one is worth a try.

A - Poured out a cloudy, orange color with a three-finger, off-white head of pillowy, fluffy foam. It left sticky sheets of intricate lace on the glass.

S - It smelled of clove and some banana. A touch of cracked wheat, too.

T - It tasted of sweet wheat, spices, clove and some banana. A good bittersweet blend of flavors.

M - It was crisp,sharp and smooth. A light to medium bodied ale with a dry finish.

O - This is a pretty tasty hefeweizen. Glad I found this one.

Serving type: 500 ml bottle. There are notches on the side of the back label but no freshness date.

Appearance: Poured into a half-liter weizen glass. The color is deep orange with an amber tint. Three fingers of dense, white head dissipated slowly to leave an even skim.

Smell: Classic and quintessential. Lots of fruit sweetness tinged with spice. Apple, banana, orange, lemon zest, and a hint of strawberry- or watermelon-flavored bubblegum. Clove and pepper offer an adequate amount of spice.

Taste: Heavy, smooth, and wheaty mouthfeel. The flavors are somewhat muted and intermixed, but they mostly mirror the aromas: apple sweetness, a hint of banana, orange, lemon zest, clove and pepper spice.

Drinkability: Decent hefeweizen. I would prefer a little more taste but it is drinkable and refreshing.

Poured from a brown 16.9 oz. bottle. Has a cloudy light brown color with a 1 inch head. Smell is of bananas and yeast. Taste is refreshing, some banana, mild spices, easy drinking. Feels full bodied in the mouth and overall this makes for a quality beer.

Out of a swing-top bottle and into my glass!

From the bottle: "Gebraut nach dem original bayerischen Reinheitsgebot (Brewed according to the German Purity Law)"; "Im ursprung das original (In the original, the original)".

My pour netted a huge, thick two fingers of tawny head that resembled the top of an ice cream soda. Color was a hazy deep amber. Nose was muted, more clove spicy than anything else. Mouthfeel was medium to full with a big banana taste on the tongue. Finish remained strong with banana esters, but I did catch some clove on the extreme finish. Frankly, that is exactly the taste/flavor profile that I generally eschew in the style. I prefer a more clove-forward hefeweizen. It was not the worst, but neither was it the best, either.

On-tap at Beachwood BBQ

A: A great looking pour on this one. Cloudy golden orange with two fingers of white head that stick to the glass.

S: Doesn't have the best aroma for a German brewed Hefeweizen. A definite lemony tartness to it, but there is a good enough wheat and bread sweetness. A mild clove spiciness and some hints of orange are there also.

T: A significant improvement on the flavor. Sweet and bready with plenty of wheat. There's an oddly tropical flavor to the beer with some fruit notes to it and even a bit of coconut.

M: Medium in body with a lively carbonation.

O: Good in the flavor, which I suppose is what's important, but the nose could use some work.
