From 12oz bottle

A- Pours a hazy/murky deep golden yellow with some orange highlights to it. Nice 1 finger white head which died away pretty quick leaving no real lacing on the sides of the glass.

S- Musty bready smell off the bat. Picking up some small hints of orange peel and clove. Big Belgian yeasty smell though. Smells wonderful!

T- Nice musty bready bite to this. Very clean tasting. Can detect a faint trace of the alcohol. Clove and a strange banana-y taste along with this.

M- Light-medium mouthfeel to this. Very crisp and clean tasting. Carbonation is good for the style and really gives the beer a push across the palate. A great presence of yeast on the tounge after a sip.

D- This is a very easy drinker and maybe one of the best american hefeweizens I have had the pleasure of drinking. Would and will drink again. Also would recommend to people who want something to bring them in easy to the style!

Backlog. 12 oz bottle. Aroma: initial whiff: not much here. After letting it sit a minute or so, the aroma reveals notes of banana, wheat. This is a beautiful beer whith great head retention and lacing. Flavor is so authentically Bavarian, I think a native Munich citizen would have difficulty differentiating this from classic German Hefeweizens like Hacker-Pschorr, Paulaner, or Spaten. Tastes like the aroma notes. Somewhat sour aftertaste. Another quality brew from one of America’s greatest breweries.

Poured from the bottle into my Delirium tulip.

Appears an amazing golden hazy color with a slight orange tinge. Impossible to see through. Big fluffy white head dissipates quickly.

Smell is delicious. Slightly tart with typical belgian yeast smells - banana, clove, orange - slight tartness.

Taste follows smell to a T. Very refreshing - yeast qualities not overwhelming at all.

Mouthfeel is nice and creamy.

Overall, fantastic example of the style. Not my typical style of beer but this one is good!
