L: light haze, bright straw color with a copper tinge. Almost no head retention or lacing.

S: yeasty and banana and baking spices. Banana bread!

F: pretty flat mouthfeel, especially for a Hefeweizen. Leaves a syrupy slick on your tongue that I don’t love.

T: strong banana flavors. The bready quality in the nose disappears on the tongue, giving way to a sweet flavor reminiscent of a cherry syrup. Not getting the orange that the label says.

O: this is a less yeasty, more fruity Hefeweizen. Flavorful and agreeable enough to get this into the 4’s for me.

Dated 6/29/18 on the bottom rim of the can, 12 days since brewing.

Pours a slightly hazy orange straw in the glass with one finger of white head that disappeared in seconds. Nose of sourdough dough, coriander, clove, toasted wheat and tangy orange rind. Taste is dominated by the top three notes of sourdough, sour orange and coriander. Deep underneath those I get a hint of clove and ever so slight banana. Quite underwhelming. Body is a watery medium-light with low carbonation. No matter how much I swirled the glass, I couldn't get ANY head back after first pouring. I'm a bit at a loss for words with this one, there's just not much to talk about, it's like a light hefeweizen mixed with a really weak orange adjunct saison. With the widespread availability of things like Weihenstephaner's Hefe Weissbier, I don't see myself picking this up again.

Refreshing. Citrus. Clean. Like hoegardeen. Same after taste. Only bad thing is that it has very little head which dissipated quickly.

This one pours a very slightly hazy orange, classic look, with a small head, and lots of lacing.

This smells like what you'd expect- which is refreshing- because most American hefeweizens are non traditional hoppy or fruity garbage cans. There's light banana and citrus, wheat, and grassy hops.

They do it fairly quietly, but Night Shift makes some awesome traditional fermented barley beverages. This is well balanced, with subdued but still present banana tones, with clove, grassy hops, and very light citrus.

This is super drinkable, with a crisp feel and a good level of carbonation.

This was the first style that got me into beer, so it's always nice to have a new version that reminds me why I love it.

Looks: Golden Orange. Light carbonation with a bit of lacing.

Smell: Sour funk with a nice bready smell rounding it out.

Taste: Wheat on the backbone with nice bit spice.

Feel: Full flavored yet light enough to drink a couple back to back without getting overwhelmed. Satisfying.

Overall: I've had my fair share of Hefes and they're starting to become a go to style for me when I want something with decent body but not as heavy as IPAs. I would consider this a medium bodies hef and definitely grows more complex as it warms and you reach the bottom of your glass.

L -- Pretty standard hefe look, a lot like Weihenstephaner but with a smaller head with less retention and lacing.
S -- Fruity yeast esters, doughy malts, clove, pepper.
T -- Wheat, lemon, sweet doughy malts, grass, orange peel, and a hint of banana
F -- Watery around the edges.Feels a bit limp
O -- A tangy take on a hefe, while still retaining the style's classic elements
