Pours a cloudy, tawny yellow in the glass with one finger of head. Some lacing on the glass as you sip. I get coriander, lemon, pale pilsner malt, really no hops to speak of in the nose. A bit of funk as well. Pale malt, citurs, and a bit nutty flavor. Very light mouthfeel,, watery, well carbonated.
This is a solid hef. I'm not a fan of the wheat ale category, but this is a good stand by. The nuttiness really stands out to me and separates it from the other hefs on the market. The other major factor that separates it is the fact that it isn't all lemon or too funky. Can we get the hefeweizens a little more balanced, people? Would be very good on a hot day or with a mild fish. Good to have to mix things up.
