Pours golden yellow with a fizzy white head. Bready wheat malt aroma with a feint hop spiciness and the illusion of lemon citrus. Medium-bodied mouthfeel. This is a crisp hefeweizen. It almost reminds me of a pilsner with less bitterness or a blonde ale, even at that. There's no banana. No clove. No fruitiness that's typically associated with a hefeweizen. There's some bitterness that emerges toward the back from the hops and lingers into the finish. Overall, not much to speak about.
Magic Hat has classified this beer as a hefeweizen and if that's the case this is off the mark quite a bit. It's still a drinkable beer, nothing spectacular, but if you're looking for a beer of this style, this is clearly not it.
