A: has a light-caramel, completely un-hefeweizen appearance; i'm bummed right away.

S: smells like a hefe...fruity and gummy

T: tastes like a "clean" and "crisp" weizen...but YO IS THIS A PILSNER?

M: eh, nothing noteworthy

Overall: I judged this book by it's cover, and I was only partially correct. Not bad, not good.

Light wheat beer. Not as cloudy as other wheat beers and not much head. Taste is okay. Strong citrus, light hops, and crisp finish. It seems a little out of balance, but it's still fairly enjoyable.

One of several decent hefes I have had recently. Nice hefe smell from the beer poured from a bottle to pint glass. Good banana taste with a bit of spice. Not much of a head and no lacing. A good beer.

This pours a very clear and light golden color with a rich white head is long lived, settles so slow I see no lacing.

The smell is grassy pine on a rainy day with earth and floral notes. The hops are subtle and a bit peppery.

The taste is exceptionally good for the style. The hops balance the sweet malts leaving it almost dry with a nice clean finish. There are some citrus notes, bread, pepper and vanilla in there. A very nice and complex flavoring.

The mouthfeel is rich and not cloying. Just right for the style.

Overall an exceptionally good and drinkable beer.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

Pours a hazy copper color with an almost non-existant head that immediately recedes and leaves no lacing. Underdeveloped aroma of banana, clove and wheat. Taste follows the nose with sweetness from banana, cloves, and coriander. Orange and yeast is missing. Body is light and carbonation is medium. No aftertastes, and the beer feels watered down.
It's a disappointing hefeweizen. Smell and taste are on the right path but not completely there and the beer is too watered down for the style.
