Bought a growler in Falmouth MA -- really wish I could get this outside of the Cape region.
Poured cloudy deep gold with a snow white head that remained while I drained the glass.
Instant aroma of sweet wheat and bananas/tropical fruit.
A bit fizzy, thinner mouthfeel -but this contributes to the drinkability of the beer. A bit tangy/tart/sour on finish.
As this is a growler, and I wasn't sharing, I capped and stuck in the fridge for the next day. Did not notice a difference in taste, carbonation-factors, etc.
Overall, I love this style, and compared to other summer beers, I prefer this to the, well, drier styled hefeweizens. The sweet fruity aroma and tart finish give this nice complexity.

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.
