Picked up at El Depósito last week. Pours very milky yellow-orange with a weak whitish head. No lacing, but the haze is good enough to earn above average marks. The nose is strong and clearly indicates the weizen nature: herbal Perle hops backed by a solid weissbier yeast strain.

This is solid on the palate with only minor flaws. Citric lemon notes and a strong herbal hop provide a bitter backdrop for the faint sweetness of esters and bubblegum. Finishes citric but in the middle it is all ester. Almost a little too far with the bubblegum note, but they're not afraid to try. A little light, but decent body, middle of the pack in terms of overall package - which is solid praise for a microbrew out of México.

A: well done, looking is as a hefeweizen should be with some little details, pale yellow color with a little orange touch, head is not as big as could but it is present in the color and with the texture expected - withe and small bubbles, carbonation is medium.

S: Spicy herbal beer, I can sense something like mint or anise also the flavor includes some citrus and the base is as should wheat.

T: Flavor is good, wheat is the main ingredient but also citrus maybe some orange but certainty some herbs, its flavor is definitely. spicy

M: alcohol can be felt as it is a little high, even that it is not complicated for drinking, not sweet not bitter very balanced and the ending is not bad.
