Wheat Sconce

A: Honey in color, cloudy with a slight orange hue. Two finger head
S: Bread, yeast, touch of lemon, nice spiciness.
T: Tastes like it smells. Light and refreshing.
M: Mouthfeel is on the thin side.
O: Nice refreshing summer wheat beer. Not exactly what I'm in to, but it was good for what it set out to be.

A - Pours a hazy straw yellow with a short stack of white head. Zero retention to speak of.

S - Banana peels, spices, lemon grass.

T - Yeast, wheat, bread, some spices. Light bodied mouthfeel - somewhat flat.

O - This brew is a decent Hefe that is worth a drink.

3.81/5  rDev +9.2%
look: 3 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 3.75

12oz bottle poured into a tulip.

(A)- Pours a hazy golden yellow color that produced some white froth that dissipated quickly. Some lacing left behind.

(S)- A big nose of yeasty wheat and biscuit with bits of lemon and orange fruits.

(T)- Very similar to the smell with a vibrant combination of yeasty bread and biscuit meeting lemon and orange citrus. Ever so slight hint of spice on the finish.

(M)- Wonderfully crisp and refreshing with a good balance of dry yet juicy citrus to it with almost no bitterness to speak of.

(O)- Its a solid take on the hefeweiss style. It is definitely better than some other versions I have had from the states for sure. A great beer for those hot summer days.

3.56/5  rDev +2%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: orangish gold color. Very hazy, almost opaque. A finger plus of a white head that leaves a bit of a lacing

Smell: banana, wheat, lots of yeast.

Taste: wheat mixing with yeasty offering of banana and a little citrus in the mix. A tad on the Belgian side of yeastiness

Mouthfeel: pretty light and drinkable. Not very stand out

Overall. A well crafted but lacking in vision hefe. Follows shorts quality of brews but misses the aspect that makes the brewery. A good drinkable beer. Just not as good as others and not special.
