look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3.25

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?

3.36/5  rDev -7.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.25

Bottled on 04/11/14, poured into weizen glass:

Pours hazed straw yellow with a fluffy head that soon descends to a thin cap. Spotted lacing sticks.

The smell is of banana, lemon, hint of clove, sour wheat tang.

The taste is of wheat crackers, sweet grain, mild banana/clove. A sour character balances the sweetness. There is a slightly metallic, floral finish.

Crisp and refreshing, but not as creamy as other examples of the style. The body leans more towards that of a typical American Pale Wheat Ale, but it works well enough.

Overall, it's between a light hefe and a stronger Berliner weiss. Decent.
