A. Cloudy with a straw yellow color. Head of three fingers that breaks fairly fast for a hefe.

S. Grain, grass, funk, yeast - exactly what you'd expect.

T. Wheat, mixed grains, spice, and hints of earth and banana. Finishes nice and crisp with a lingering aftertaste that quickly invites you back for another sip. Outstanding.

M. What I want in a sessionable hefe - light bodied with nice carbonation.

O. Dancing Man used to be my go to summer hefe but no more. This is one damn fine beer that packs a crap-load of flavor with a low ABV for great sessionability. Nicely done and well worth seeking out.

This pours a clear, golden yellow color with a fizzy, off-white head. The aroma is full of banana, yeast, and clove tones. The taste is sweet and fizzy with a decent amount of yeasty banana flavor. This is very well-made and quiet flavorful for the style. Probably one of the best offerings from Lakefront.

From BeerAdvocate magazine Issue #67 (August 2012):

LOOK: Fizzy lace, big bubbled, cloudy straw

SMELL: Chalky yeast, mineral, peppery phenols, taffy, ripe fruit, grainy, floral

TASTE: Very crisp, long slickness, wet body, very grainy, crackers, overly yeasty, spicy, very dry, salt, dried grass, modest hopping, faint esters, powdered clove, banana pith

Respect for Lakefront for brewing with all local ingredients. Unfortunately, the beer lands, at best, within the middle of the pack for the Hefeweizen style. Lacking head retention due to an overly expressive yeast takes away from this beer and the drinkability it should wield. Good flavors here and there, but nothing really seems to mesh 100 percent. Perhaps this beer should be marketed as an American Farmhouse Ale?
