Bought at People's Liquour Warehouse in Fall River

Poured from bottle to pint glass

Not sure of freshness and review might not be completely accurate as it is somewhere between cold and room temperature.

Appearance: Exactly as you'd expect from the style. Cloudy golden orange. Poured a nice two finger foamy head that dissipated rather quickly leaving a nice ring around the outside. Tiny bubbles. No lacing

Aroma: Wheat, cloves, faint banana

Taste: Follows the nose. Clove heavy (maybe since it's room temp), crisp wheat, very subdued banana at first - more flavor towards the bottom seemingly

Mouthfeel: Crisp, light, somewhat creamy

Overall: Great example of a true heffeweizen. I feel like a lot of American heffe's miss their mark. Personally, I'm a fan of the style and like to try a new one when I see it. Have yet to be disappointed by a German heffe. Would definitely revisit this one

A: Hazy straw yellow with dust at the bottom. Massive head and plenty of visible carbonation.

S: Aroma of pale wheat malt , coriander / belgian wit yeast strain.

T: a great Hefeweizen that will please for years to come. One of the originals and classics and not to be messed with. Spatens shining crown in my opinion. Bubblegum, wheat, blueberry hints and doughy yeasty esters that make this a super complex beer at 5%. Highly drinkable. What is not to like?

M: Medium body for a hefeweizen and highly carbonated.

O: Again, a classic I have had many times and will have again. Easily drinkable. A perfect summer or springtime weather beer that will not be offensive to your friends who may not be huge beer drinkers. If you havent had this, you clearly should visit your beer roots. I like my hefeweizens a little thicker, but this is hardly a fault of this beer. It has been around for ages.
