A recent addition to the beer shelves of Alabama. Thanks for sendng it south.
Nice pale hazy yellow in the glass (more honey colour when not held to the light, though), with an active fluffy white head.
Smell is yeasty and spicy- dominated by clove and hops. There's a bt of banana and citrus under.
Flavour seems to be what you'd expect if a BMC tried to be a hefe. There's not enough fruit, not enough spice. Yeastiness is also odddly missing.
Feels good in the mouth- nice and wet, with an active carbonation that isn't too storng.
It's extremely drinakble- very refresing on a hot day. Not quite lawnmower beer, but more like sitting-in-the-living-room-watching-a-hockey-game beer. (That's what I'm doing now, BTW.) Could come across as bland after a while, though.
When I think of hefe, this isn't quite comes to mind. Not sure I'd go so far as to say calling this a hefe is like calling William Shatner a god actor, though...
