I normally like Wheat beers, but couldn't even finish this one. Yuck. Could not really discern just what the heck flavor this was.

I think I got a poorly bottled batch, because it had no carbonation, no head, taste was so bitter and foul that I couldn't finish the bottle. Went through the entire six pack - same results. Smelled bad, not like a hefe should. Bottled October 1st. I'll try this again in the future, but not anytime soon.

Had this on tap at the brewery.
A great brew! Hazy yellow. A lot of smell and taste of banana, citrus and bubblegum. Very sweet. Very refreshing for the summer.

I never liked wheat beers until recently. This one smells bready and delicious. Some fruit/banana small. Delicious taste. Sweet yet crisp. Not heavy. What I expected from the style and brewery given their roots.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Appearance:
Dark gold color, murky. Lots of carbonation rising up. Thin head.

Aroma:
Fruity, banana, sweet bready, slight citrusy.

Taste/Finish/Body:
Fruity yeast, banana, cloves, hint of peach. Sweet bready malts, a little lemony from the wheat. Finish is slight tartness, very crisp. Body is chunky, a little creamy, super refreshing, crisp, slight dryness, highly drinkable.

Overall:
It's an excellent Hefeweizen.

Pours murky with a smaller head than I expected. Smells of citrus and wheat but has more of a banana taste which I expected. Left with a great taste afterwards. Overall good beer.

Pours small frothy head that quickly dissipates. Its a golden color that is hazy. Has the typical banana and clove flavor and aroma. Overall it displays all the characteristics of a good hefeweizen, and it does it well. Very yummy beer, and I would definitely buy it again
