12 ounce bottle into weizen glass, best before 7/25/2014. Pours hazy deep gold color with a small foamy off white head with poor retention, that reduces to nothing. No glass lacing, and a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of lemon, orange, banana, pear, apple, clove, wheat, bread, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of fruity/spicy yeast, earthy hops, and pale malt sweetness; with solid strength. Taste of lemon, orange, banana, pear, apple, clove, wheat, bread, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness. Light bready tartness and yeast spice on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, banana, pear, apple, clove, wheat, bread, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a short bit. Nice complexity and solid robustness of fruity/spicy yeast, earthy hops, and pale malt sweetness; with a good yeast/malt balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth, fairly crisp, and slightly watery/bready mouthfeel that is ok. Alcohol is well hidden with no warming present after the finish as expected of 4.7%. Overall this is a pretty solid hefeweizen. Good balance and solid robustness of fruity/spicy yeast, earthy hops, and pale malt sweetness; and very smooth to drink. It was fairly enjoyable.

4.09/5  rDev +16.5%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: light gold to bronze color slightly murky but deceptive to the naked eye

Smell: as indicated I could smell some banana and some light citrus in the aroma

Taste: Had a slight malty flavor and light bitterness from the hops, I had a hint of banana and citrus when it hit the back of my throat as well. I only had a light bitter aftertaste however it was very light and doesnt bother me for a hefe

Mouthfeel: The mouthfeel was actually surprising I had little after taste and was easy for me to drink down compared to other hefes I have had. It was smooth and light.

Overall: Conclusion I find that this is a perfect summertime Hefe to drink when you want a light alcohol content with smooth wheat based hefe and will guarantee not to make you feel like you have a sour mouth or bad after taste like most all day drinking brews have. I recommend however if you drink this brew for a all day summertime type day pair it with some cheese like feta and some unsalted crackers to keep the flavor fresh in your mouth

*Recommended Brew for Summertime

**note: I am not a professional beer taster, the opinions in this review are mine and mine alone.
