A: The beer was served in an appropriate Weizen glass. It had a straw yellow hue that was not as cloudy as I would expect from this style. The bartender actually left a nice head on the beer, which was a nice white foamy head which did not dissipate to quickly.

S: The aroma of the beer was OK. It had a standard wheat/yeast/bready aroma with a hint of citrus.

T: Again, taste was OK. Better than some that I have had at other brewpubs, but the yeast was noticeable and it was a little sweet, but nothing to really rave about.

M/D: Overall, as noted the beer was average. It seemed slightly over carbonated and watered down, but it was light and easy to drink and per our waiter it was one of the more popular beers on tap. If I go back, I would order the IPA before this.

This was their seasonal offering and given the heat & humidity of Atlanta, I think it is a good choice. They ask if you want a lemon which should make most BAs happy.

The beer was a nice hazy yellow with a large head and rings of lace.

Big nose of clove and banana. Very hard to pick-up much else, but it did smell good.

The taste was crisp, tart and refreshing. More clove taste with some slight sweetening as the beer warms. A bit of a one note beer, but still tasty.

Mouthfeel was slightly thin and I think it had a bit to much carbonation. Drinkability was very good. All-in-all an enjoyable attempt at a German Hefe.
