05/14/14 On tap. Not your Mom's heffe by any stretch of the imagination. The presence of ginger bends to the east of the refresh heading my mind was set for. It slips by the nose detection system & even evades the taste buds but gets all the way to the back palate then thumbs it's nose over the shoulder...like a gatecrasher that's the other side of the barricade. Merely worth a shrug & a wait & see to find what may be added to the party. IMO, not much. In fact it may be adding to a cloying aftertaste that detracts from the usual refreshment I get from straight up heffes. Going rougue, in this case, got a bit off the reservation...but perhaps that's their point. In conclusion, this did grow on me...but then again so does moss, where the sun don't shine.

From 22 oz bottle.

Clear slghtly hazy golden; large frothy head and good lacing.

Aroma: a mix of appealing light malts and less appealing yeast and spices.

Flavor: mildly sweet; soft fruits; light bread; mild coriander.

Feel: medium-light body with lively, medium carbonation.

O: a tame spiced hefe.

A: A very bright golden straw and a big 3 finger fluffy white head. Not hazy like your typical wit/hefe, but nice looking nevertheless.

S: Sweetness of wheat aided by addition of rose water. Delicate floral notes. Some spiciness. Light coriander.

M: Light but has a good carbonation to give it a nice creamy backbone. Excellent level of tartness at finish.

T/O: Light and lingering bitterness, almost akin to the pleasant spiciness of ginger. Nice breadiness and wheat flavors. Sweet twang of rose tips might assist hop bitterness as well. Really great springtime beer, more of American Pale Wheat than typical hefe or wit, but highly drinkable beer due to how the mouthfeel compliments the sweetness of this beer.
