Poured from a bottle into a pint glass. At least it LOOKS like a hefeweizen. Cloudy pale yellow.
Nose only reveals hop aroma. No hint of banana, clove, bubblegum, or any fruity esters. What's going on here?
Taste confirms it: Hefeweizen in name only. Hop bitterness and flavor predominate, and are more in line with a standard bitters. Wheat and malt both very subdued
Mouthfeel is smooth enough; I guess there is some wheat in here after all.
Generally a disappointment; neither as interesting nor as refreshing as a hefeweizen, and the amount of hops doesn't go well with the wheat character.
Serving type: bottle
