Served from a growler into a shaker glass.
A- Poured a bright hazy golden color with white soapy head that dissipated instantly and left no lace.
S- Pretty traditional aroma of bubblegum, clove, and banana. Although not a very strong aroma.
T- Big bubblegum notes, banana, and clove. Pretty balances and traditional flavor profile.
M- Light bodied, prickly carbonation, and a slightly watery finish.
O- A very traditional tasting hefeweizen that does not differentiate itself much from others in the style. A little more body and aroma would have been nice, but a nice easy drinking beer.

Whoa! , First taste and I though mighty German but the finish was weak. It did remind me of a fine German Weizen I had several years ago introduced by a German Soccer player. A summer weizen perhaps, not sure where El Jefe is perhaps in Argentina?, No this one somehow is in the PNW.

Smell out of bottle is primarily malty with subtle hops.
Nice yeasty, unfiltered look. Head that settles but never dies, floats on top.
Nice milky first feel, malty but zesty citric taste, but not too overpowering or too sour. Not too bitter.
Smell out of glass is more lemony.
Even though it's winter time now, I can tell this would be a spectacular summertime beer.
Subtle apple, but smooth and no bad aftertastes.
