Wheat, grain, a touch of lemon in aroma. Grainy, wheat backbone, minerally flavor, with a bitter, earthy finish. Not much hefe character. Didn't get the bottle sediment, though.

Poured from 12 oz. bottle to pint glass.

A: Hazy yellow-orange body with a 1 1/2 inch white head.
S: Yeasty. Hints of Lemon and Orange.
T: Follows the nose. White bread. Yeastiness. Citrus juice. Banana and clove notes are not very present, if at all. Bit of alcohol in the finish.
M: Light and crisp. Very refreshing. Not much in the way of flavor though.
O: Nothing stands out in this beer, and I wish I could get more of the banana and clove notes usually found in Hefeweizens. Might be good on a summer day, but nothing really impresses me with this beer.
