This unfiltered hefeweizen ale is the perfect brew to bring to the beach, have on the boat or have a few of while kicking back with some buddies. The crisp citrusy flavor provided by the Cascade hops and the addition of hops after fermentation and the lower 4.5% ABV keep this Summer Hefeweizen light refreshing for those hot and humid New England summer months.

12oz brown bottle with a freshness date.

LOOK: Cloudy, murky yellow, great head retention

SMELL: Whole cloves, peppery, phenolic, herbal, yeasty, nutty, ripe fruit, bready, lemon pith

TASTE: Herbal, toasted grain, smooth, dried grass, crackers, nutty, powdered clove, banana peel, bitter, phenolic, dry finish

Yeast went a little crazy on this one perhaps, still drinkable but the bitter finish does wear on my palate more than other hefeweizens. Give it a go.

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a pint glass. Pours cloudy yellow, very light foam. Light wheaty smell. Some banana, but not much. Light citrus taste, some tang at the close. Light carbonation that pushes through more than a typical hefe. Honestly more of a witbier than anything else. But a decent light summer beer.

I enjoyed this one in downtown Newport while on business. It's a pretty Americanized take on the style, with some big citrusy flavors along with the traditional banana and clove. The aroma is pretty bland compared to the flavor, which is bolder and more compelling than I expected.

On-tap 7/8/2012 at Doherty’s East Ave Irish Pub, in Pawtucket, RI, served in a US pint glass.

A: The beer is a cloudy gold color, with a large foamy white head that fades slowly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains wheat, lemon, light caramelized malts and some spices.

T: The taste starts out bready with a strong wheat flavor followed by sweet flavors of lemon and spices. The malt character is hearty but not too heavy. The hops presence is mild but complementary and provides some balance. The after-taste is slightly bready and slightly sweet.

M: Crisp and smooth, light-to-medium body, medium carbonation, finish is clean.

O: Tasty, goes down easily, not too filling, mild kick, good representation of style, this is a solid wheat beer to drink for a long time.

I have been housed in King of Prussia for over six weeks and it has been Br'er Rabbit in the Briar Patch time! Man, going to Wegman's Bottle Shop brings me to my knees every time I walk in the joint. That is where I scored this bottle.

I Pop!ped the cap and began an aggro pour to stir up and lees that may have developed. It was highly carbonated and puffed up quickly with two-plus fingers of fluffy, off-white head with decent retention. Color was a cloudy Amber (SRM = > 7, < 9). Nose had a nice clove spiciness and I immediately sat up and took notice. Mouthfeel was medium. The taste was clove-spicy, but not as pronounced as on the nose. Thankfully, for me, it did not have a huge banana ester presence, either. It was kind of bready, but it seemed a little off. The finish was semi-dry and still spicy, but there was an odd flavor that I just could not get past.

Poured a hazy yellow color with a two-finger head that disappated. Subdued aromas of banana and clove. This is definitley a thirst quencher and easy on the palate. Flavor points are a little on the light side for a hefe. If you are looking for something refreshing on a summer day, this is your beer.
