Cloudy yet substantial in its appearance this Hefe had an almost brown/orange like hue. The head was foamy and tight but ebbed away quickly.

Light wheat and bubblegum sweetness on the nose.

The flavor is very light and at times undiscernable. More wheat is tasted, earthy and starchy, with some yeast aspects. Bubblegum-like sweetness and a seltzer water come near the finish.

The feel is sprite and prickly but easy to drink. Nothing seems to sit on the stomach so you can tackle a few in a row.

Not the most vibrant of Hefe's this does play into some of my preferences. I prefer less clove like flavors and there was none to make this a decent choice.

Ticking this one for an Untappd badge... Surprised I have not reviewed it before... Pours an orange haze with a long lasting white head.

Nose is standard "wheat" with a little bit of something that I associate with lemon.

Flavor is the same... drinkable and light tasting, goes down pretty smoothly.

Probably the prototype for most American Wheats... but I like mine generally with a lot more hop character.
