05/09/12 A pretty pour w/serious body. Not exactly summerstock, but not unplesant. I guess it's something to ease in & out of summer with. If that sounds undecided, I am.

I have always been a big fan of Widmer Brothers and this is the beer that got me started, easily one of my favorite Hefeweizens, easy to drink, not too heavy.

A - Cloudy golden amber in color. head goes on for days and is slow to dissipate. 4.25/5

S - Very subdued banana, clove, white bread, biscuit, and butter. Ever so slight hint of herbal hops. 3.25/5

T - Extremely subdued here. Essentially the same as the aroma with virtually no hop flavor. 3.25/5

M - Very creamy. Medium bodied. Definitely a wheat beer. Low to medium carbonation. 3.75/5

O - somewhat disappointed in this beer. flavor and aroma are extremely subdued. definitely a Hef with the notes of banana and clove but not a whole lot going on. will not buy again. 3.25/5
