On tap at the brew pub in Lake Placid. Very cloudy, very yellow, looks very thick, like it was pulpy grapefuit juice. There was a smoky spicyness to the scent, with cloves popping in. Had a lemony spicy taste, with a touch of salt, apple cider and peaches. It is indeed so spicy that it is a bit hard to drink, the spicyness contributing to the fairly full bodied mouthfeel. Overall a nice beer, and a style I need to get more in touch with.

Hazy golden wheat color. Fluffy, sticky off-white head. Aroma and taste are on par with the German imports, IMHO. Rich mouthfeel and pleasant banana/clove and lemon tartness. This Hefe’s got some substance but still retains its refreshing qualities. Very much a traditional Hefe Weizen in all of its characteristics. Impressive local brew. I hope to find this again soon. Sampled (multiple times) at the 2003 Flour City Brewers Festival in Rochester.

Sampled at the 2003 Vermont Brewers Festival

A rather nice hefeweizen, it poured with a nice light yellow body and a thin white head with a nice haze to it. The aroma was nice and fruity, almost lemony, with a hint of spicy. The taste was similar, and what I expect from a good hefeweizen: tangy and light, with a nice yeastiness. A nice light mouthfeel, very refreshing. Very drinkable, and one of the better beers I sampled that day.
