look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a growler into a weizen glass.

Poured a pretty nice hazy golden color with a soft, pillowy, white head. It left a nice lacing in the glass, with plenty visible carbonation bubbles rising to the glass, this one looked pretty tasty. Smell was of banana and clove, but I didn't find it to be amazing. Taste does have some banana and lemon zest, but cloves mostly dominate this one. Pretty good, just could have been better. Medium bodied, high carbonation, fit in well with this one. Drinkability was ok, but for a weizen I think it could be better. Pretty good, I just expected more.

A- Hazy pale golden with a very thick white head. Retention is decent.
S- The aroma is definitely more peppery than banana or anything else. The spice notes are big, but one-dimensional.
T- There is only the slightest of fruit notes before being overtaken by a big spice kick that carries through to the finish.
M- Medium body, dry finish.
O- A decent hefeweizen but I was left a little underwhelmed by it.

This beer came a foggy peach and gold that seemed a little dark for the style.

Smells of sweet corn syrup and confectioners sugar with some peaches and doughy yeast. I’m also getting a little mandarin orange and lemon. Too sweet!

Tastes of sweet cantaloupe that picks up a little lemon and turns to a musky, sour yeast. Finishes a little bitter.

The mouth feel is medium bodied with a mild carbonation.

Not too hot for the style, but not entirely terrible.

Had this in a pint glass at Town Hall

A- Yellow Gold very opaque and still, really a good looking Hefe Weizen

S- Semi Sweet Malty good level of the smells not overpowering

T- Sweet a nice taste, with some very wheaty attributes

M- Just as expected from it just average nothing jumping out at me.

D- Nice and refreshing I would only have one in a night but I would order it agin.

Notes: Overall it is a very sold Hefe Weizen offering and worth a try to anyone who likes the style.

Cloudy white and gold color. Banana and cloves on the nose. The initial attack is consistent with the nose. The clove flavor is heavy but it cleans up surprisingly well before the finish. The appearance is really more similar to a white ale in my opinion. The malt is much more pronounced in the flavor than I accustomed to in a hefeweizen. I can't say whether I favor this or not, but I do know that it ranks in the middle as one of the many in the hefeweizens I have had. Worth a shot.
