Served in a Sloeber tulip glass.

I'm wondering how many ass puns these guys can come up with (and if that limitation will limit the number of beers they'll end up brewing)? Anyway, this stuff pours a mostly clear pale straw topped by several fingers of iridescent white foam. The nose comprises orange rind, mild soap, very light wheat, even lighter coriander, and a touch of lemon rind. The taste holds notes of soap, light orange rind (the inside, all the way, baby), random vegetation (seemingly kale and/or celery), and mild grass. The body is a hefty light, with a moderate carbonation and a fairly wet feel. Overall, a pretty sad hefe, one that I can easily say I won't ever seek out again.

12 oz bottle, taken home from ACBF. It was poured into my Brooklyn Brewery tulip.

Tight Ass Hefeweizen pours a golden yellow, with a bit of haze to it. There's maybe two fingers of foam topping the beer, with minimal head retention and lacing. The nose has some clove, but it's more of a general spiciness. There's no banana, but instead a very light citrus aroma. There's so bready malt sweetness at the front, maybe a little bit too much. The "clove" fills up the middle of the profile, but again it's more of a spiciness, more reminiscent of the flavor one gets from some European hops (think Saaz) than any phenols. That same faint citrus from the nsoe is what closes out the beer. The body is just a little too full and heavy, and the carbonation falls markedly short of being as bubbly/active as it needs to be. Tight Ass Hefeweizen is probably the least authentic Weissbier I've ever had. I probably would have scored it higher if you told me it's a pale ale.

12oz brown bottle with no freshness date.

LOOK: Hazy pale orange, good lacing all around

SMELL: Grassy, buttery, taffy, vegetable broth, faint esters, muted ripe fruit

TASTE: Smooth, medium body, pungent, bitter, bready, broth, buttery yeast, spicy, citric rind, earthy, muddled after taste

A mess in many ways, banana and clove are absent and tastes more like a hoppy wheat ale with no real direction. The buttery tone does not play well either. Pass on this one if you are looking for a true German wheat beer.

A cloudy pale yellow pour with a medium lasting white head. Aroma and taste is of citrus, lemon, wheat, and some grass and fruity notes with mild bitterness on the finish for balance. Palate is a light body, crisp with good carbonation. This brew seems to be a bit on the bitter side for a Hefeweizen. Overall nothing really special here, an ok brew good for summertime drinking.

Such a juvenile name to use. At least it sets them apart (sort-of).

Pours a nice golden blond color with a thick white head into my glass. Very nice color here, ready for consumption.

Clove and wheat in the nose with a touch of citrus for good measure.

Starts off great with wheat and clove and then finishes closer to that of a pale ale (?). Carbonation is all weirded out.

Ditto. Wasn't expecting hops here.

Umm? Pick up an actual German hefe and skip this mediocre example.

Poured into a weizen glass.

3.25 A: Moderately hazed medium orange brownish color. Two fingers of pillowy white head. Retention is good, but it doesn't stick well.

3.0 S: Wheat, clove spiciness, yeastiness. A touch of coriander and bitter lemon peel. It's okay, but it could be a lot cleaner.

2.75 T: Again, wheat, clove, yeastiness. A bit more bitter than I'd like. Lemon peel, coriander. Could also be cleaner here.

2.75 M: Lighter medium body. Carbonation is a bit bity. Lacking creaminess big time.

2.75. D: Not the worst, but definitely not worth ever drinking again.

12 ounce bottle - $2.99 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.

Appearance: Pours a lightly cloudy, slightly dingy gold body with a tall crown of suds.

Smell: Gentle nose, not particular smelling of wheat malt. Or phenolic clove accents. Oh, and sans banana. Just the teensiest touch of spice and a little fresh lemon and lime peel.

Taste: Malted wheat, not overtly heavy on flavor in that regards, with a light, confectioner's sugar sweetness. Slight lemon-lime taste, which made me think of Sprite for a second. There is a spiciness present, but it's very muted, with only a faint hint of clove beyond the aftertaste as the other flavors drop out. No banana character. Semi-dry, crisp, sudsy finish with a last dose of lemon-lime.

Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium-high carbonation.

Overall: It would be completely fine if labeled merely as a crisp, easy-going wheat ale, but it doesn't hold a candle to the best of the hefe bunch (especially at three bucks a pop).
