Pours a creamy looking golden nectarine color. Very rich and milky looking as it's got a beautiful hazy look to it. The head is bright white and impressive, like a thick cloud. Great lacing as the head falls.

A nice combination of the banana and cloves you'd expect, but also some bubble gum, citrus fruits and pepper.

Straw-like floral taste. Banana bread. Pepper and cloves.

Complex mouthfeel. Slightly sweet and acidic up front. Creamy all the way thru. More acid in the swallow, along with a slightly tart hop bitterness. Medium bodied. Ever so slightly watery feel.

Overall I liked this beer a lot. It's very easy to drink and the ABV is reasonable so you can have several. A good go-to beer during the warmer months.

botched my pour. huge off-white head. flows a light gold color that light penetrates nicely, forms into a frothy copper in the glass with tangerine tint. very hazy. big lacing lasts forever. beautiful brew.

smells of coriander, oranges, hint of olive, smells like a floral pasture. a lot happening. foresty overtones.

plenty of bread and citrus in the initially taste. dry (not too) and thin but nice finish. crisp feeling makes you want more. light orangey aftertaste.

a legit hefe. bold yet subtle. robust yet smooth. dry yet crisp. perfect balance.

Poured from a 12oz bottle to a weizen glass

Pours a hazy orange/yellow, with a 2 finger head that thins to a lace and slimes a residue along the side of the glass. Smells of bananas, lemons, Sweet sugary candies. Lemon again on the tongue, followed by sweet banana bread, sweet grainy feel. Light bodied, high carbonation, tingly sweet with a dry finish. This is delicious heff, great beer for a hot night.

Pours a cloudy orange color with a nice white head into my glass. THIS is a hefeweizen, baby!

Banana and clove in the nose with a stronger emphasis on the latter.

Citrus, clove and wheat flavors make up the palate here. Somewhat dry too.

Authentic mouthfeel too. Clove is most prominent. Carbonation is mid-level.

It tastes a bit bland but otherwise, should quench your thirst. I would still take it over any of the American Pale Wheat Ale imitators!

Everyone has been raving about this Hef but in my opinion it's way over carbonated and very light in flavor. Maybe I am not overally ethusiastic about this Hef because I am used to the American Hefs (Sam Adams, Pyramid, etc) so take this with a grain of salt:

A: Poured a thick white head and golden/orangy color.

S: Lots of spice and citrus

T: A very tangy brew, a lot of carb, probably should have let this sit awhile

M: Crisp and clean and lots of carb - too much carb in my opinion. Sorta distracted from the overall taste

Overall - this is a great German style hef. If you're used to American Hef you might be slightly disappointed.

Serving type: bottle
