On-tap at the Gamble Mill.

A: The hefeweizen is a pale straw color, hazed over in all of its unfiltered glory. A wispy white head is all she wrote.

S: The nose has wheat, tartly sweet and lemony, with a soft underbelly of clove and orange. Plenty of citrus sharpness.

T: The first sip is more reserved, slowly releasing the citrus. Wheat is airy and light, only gradually turning lemony. Following the wheat, clove and orange come through (note no orange slice came with the ale), softer spices that cut through the lemon. Refreshing with a nice finish.

M: Another low carbonation ale, this one benefitting from the lengthened wheat presence. Possibly my early favorite (until the IPA and Brown ale came along).

Review #1500!

First had: on tap at their brewpub

Straw-yellow pour, not quite as hazy as you'd expect from a hefeweizen, minimal white head capping it off. Standard wheat profile in the nose, with touches of citrus and clove. The taste follows the aroma, with lightly toasted wheat, citrus notes, clove and yeasty spice, mild hop bitterness, a bit stale in the finish. Light-bodied and fairly easy to drink, decent overall.
