Glass - Wheat Beer

A - An orange/gold colored brew that produced a massive 3-4 finger head on a gentle pour. The head looked fluffy and as it dissipated it created a little volcano affect. Lots and lots of C02 can be seen as well, and it left a tiny splotch or two on my glass.

S - Soft mustiness from the yeast. Fresh Lemon/orange notes upfront with subtle banana and bubble gum underneath. Soft clove as well. Smells very fresh and inviting.

T - Crisp flavors of orange/lemon upfront. Clean grain mid palate with finishing flavors of lemon, soft banana & bubble gum, and just the slightest bit of clove. Bitterness is low but balancing, and wheat and grain are left lingering on the tongue for a bit.

M - Very very carbonated with an airy, lite feel to it. A bit smooth and lite-medium bodied.

O - I remember having this on tap and it wasn't so carbonated. Anyway, this authentic Hefeweizen tastes clean, and is more on the lemony side to me. The C02 was a bit to much for me as well. Overall I love this one though. Everything about it is refreshing and inviting to me. Definitely recommend this one. Cheers!

glass: wheat beer glass

a: Cloudy orange body that glows in the sunlight, it reminds me of when i had this on-tap at a beach-side outdoor restaurant in the summer. 4-finger pillowy white head with splashy lacing. The head looks like it will stick around nicely.

s: Smells of banana, coriander, orange peel, pepper corns, grain, soft biscuit-like malts and just a hint of alcohol.

t: Banana, orange and lemon dominate. A general spicy and zesty quality overtones. Finishes zippy and malty with a hint of wheat.

m: Carbonated. Highly carbonated. On the light-side, not watery though.

o: This beer represents summer to me. Its not a mind-blowing beer but its solid, refreshing and a simple pleasure to take part in, whenever life gets too fast ..and a slowing is desired.
