Cloudy golden straw colored beer. Fizzy head with big bubbles. Highly carbonated. I had to be easy on my pour, and swirl the last bit to stir up the yeast.

Nice sweet yeasty aroma. Some banana and pilsner malt.

A nice sweet, yeasty flavor. Malts and hops are somewhat balanced.

Smooth, silky consistency with champagne-like carbonation. Wet, average length finish.

I really like the hefeweissen style. This is no exception. Nothing outrageous, but a really good beer.

This is the best beer I have ever drink. The taste after-flavour is awesome, it smells like a real beer. This is the real thing, the flavour is the best part.. at first swig I automatially realized, this is the best taste and mouhfeel I've ever had. Drink it when not eating. Had just a bad experience, I bought some on a promotion beacause of expiration date, and altought it was still on a valid date the taste was completely different, so make sure it is bottled recently before buying.

09/25/13 On tap. Listed as a weizen. More body than I expected. Nice balance of dry and refreshing. Although Oktoberfest is a harbinger of colder days, this is a great transitional brew.

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

From the 11.2 oz bottle. Sampled on January 18, 2014.

It pours a cloudy and foggy pale yellow with a huge carbonated white head that fizzles down rather quickly. It looks like there is some yeast still floating around this one.

The aroma is of toasted biscuit malts, wheat, and lemongrass.

The body is light and refreshing making it easy to quaff.

The taste is echoes the aroma with a lot of toasted biscuit, wheat, and a clean lemon finish.

Pours translucent golden yellow with a faint white head that settles to a thin film on top before disappearing completely. No lace to speak of.

Smell is mostly malt with faint citrus notes and a hint of clove.

Taste is of sweet malt with some notes of Autumn spices.

Mouthfeel is lighter bodied with high carbonation. A stream of tiny bubbles rises continuously throughout the drink down.

A decent Oktoberfest. This is lighter in body and less spice-forward than most of it's American counterparts.

A: The beer is hazy yellow in color and has a high amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a finger high white head that gradually died down, consistently leaving a thin head covering the surface and lots of lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Faint to light aromas of caramel and toasted malts are present in the nose along with notes of bananas, the latter of which becomes stronger as the beer warms up.
T: The taste shares some similarities with the smell, but is more balanced with stronger flavors of bananas from the yeast that stand up to the caramel and toasted malts.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: I found this beer to be unique because it is a maltier version of a hefeweizen and makes for a good wheat beer to drink when it is a little chillier outside in the spring or fall.
