I always get this in 64oz. growlers at the King of Prussia location. It pours a hazy and cloudy straw color. It has a lighter carbonation to it which really brings out the wheat flavor. It is unfiltered goodness that is always fresh to the taste and has a clean finish. I love the small on site brews, always fresh and of high quality!

Large draft bought at the Minneapolis airport near gate C1.

A - very pale. Not a lot of head . Very hazy body.

N - smells all right. Light wheat and coriander mostly. Barely there orange .

T - follows the nose, wherever it goes.

M - kind of chewy. Decent carbonation level.

O - not too shabby for 10:30 AM at an airport. Cheers!

Weak. Hardly any taste. No after taste. Smooth. Clean. No taste. For those who do not like the taste of beer. Certainly not German. No bite going down or afterwards. Just bland.

Had this as part of the sampler. Ordered on my birthday 3/16

A - Looks like a good Hefeweizen very hazy orange yellow with a 1/2 inch of sticky white foam.
S - Has a distinct orange and orange peel smell. Some spice but very faded. Most of the fruity smell seems to be from the yeast.
T - It was actually pretty good a much smoother "Blue Moon" taste. Has the sweet orange and bitter peel, really no spice or coriander, and a fruity finish. Like Blue Moon without the hard water taste.
M - Light to medium very drink able.

Overall its not world class but easy enough to drink. In my party someone even compared it to HofbrÀuhaus Hefeweizen which has an 87 rating on this site.
