An excellent hefeweizen, not quite to the level of Weihenstephaner, but pretty good and defiantly better then Blue Moon. Has a mass produced slight chemically/aluminum taste to it. Lots of wheat, malt, and citrus. Great price option to since it isn't and import. If you like hefs, I would definitely give this one a try. Easily found also.

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a Samuel Adams pint glass. Purchased at Wakefield Liquors in Wakefield, RI

A - Hazy golden-orange fluffy 3 finger head with heavy retention. Nice thick lacing. Looks nice.

S- Soapy, corny, slightly malty and citrusy. Uninviting.

T- Unfortunately it follows the nose, minus the soapy part. Taste is lacking. Some spice and wheat notes, but they're very faint.

M- Medium-high carbonation, medium body.

Overall, I was unimpressed by this brew. It looked nice, but quickly turned disappointed with the first smell. Not really a hefeweizen in my opinion. Not worth a try.

Brown bomber into wetted pint glass served cold.

A: hazy pale color with what is easily the most pathetic excuse for head ever to be on a beer. Fizzed out soda like bubblea with absolutly no retention at all. Looks sub par.

S: pale ale plain and simple, and not even a good one. Slightly fruity though and a hint of wheat muskyness.

T: yeasty more than anything. slightly sweet pale malt. A little astringent. Not much hop presence, a bit on the finish but not bitter.

M: medium feel, smooth, and a little carbonation. The best part is the mouthfeel.

O: a pretty sad brew, not something I would get again but I don't hate it I guess.
