3.54/5 rDev -6.3%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5
Note: 500mL swing-top bottle
Appearance: Somewhere between dark gold and orange - oddly clear for the style, pours with a big, creamy, white head - fades to a small cap, leaves some nice streaks of lacing
Smell: Yup, this is a German Hefeweizen, not an American Pale Wheat Ale - yeasty, with some clove, banana, and some phenols - lightly spicy, with some lemony citrus, and wheat - not particularly potent, but not bad
Taste: Crisp and yeasty with some wheat - some interesting yeast notes, with clove, banana, pepper, grass, and coriander - wheat is pretty obvious, in a perfectly acceptable way - light, pale malts - light sweetness and a hint of tart lemon
Mouthfeel: On the light side, nicely carbonated, very smooth, very quaffable
Overall: Refreshing? What is this, a summer beer or something?
This is a decent hefeweizen. There are some nice flavors here, but the beer as a whole is a bit light. I guess this was intentional, as it is the summer seasonal. Worth a try.

3.95/5 rDev +4.5%

Frosty golden brown ale with a thick, foamy head. Aromas of sweet wheat, spices and sugary fruits. Tons of spice in this ale! Flavors of grasses, sweet apples and spices. This is a complex, full bodied ale that's a pleasure to drink, even if it's a little heavier and more spiced than what I'd be looking for after a hot summer day.
