a simple and pretty good hefeweizen here, old school and rather well done, especially if you like them a little on the estery side. this is robust on the yeast side of things, maybe fermented a little warmer than is in my personal wheelhouse, but its still a really drinkable beer with great carbonation, nice dryness after a fresh wheaty middle, and enough throwback rustic elements to make it come across old worldy to me. lots of body but also lots of carbonation to keep it flowing along, it moves swiftly and is refreshing for how flavorful it is. this seems to be one of their more popular brews, we saw it all around town, at least in the beerier spots in des moines, and i think thats cool. this is a style that hasnt really stayed hot in the american craft brewing scene, which is a shame, its got a lot going on and has wide appeal, i am surprised we dont see more good ones like this out there. crisp for what it is, cool banana and spice and earthy elements from the yeast, and something i could stay on for awhile. underrated here on BA in my opinion...

12 ounce bottle into a tulip glass. Bottled 2/8/17, had 6/26/17.

Pours a clear golden color, with a half inch head and a decent amount of soapy lacing. Smells of light yeast and malt, smoke, a little banana, some cloves, wheat, some black pepper. The taste is more condensed- yeast, light malt and vanilla, more cloves than the nose. Mostly smooth, thin feeling for the style, definitely not enough carbonation for the style.

Should have used a weizen glass, my bad, but not enough malt or yeast, doesn’t feel like a hefeweizen.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Look: Very little white head (though that could have been due to my pour), cloudy yellow and tan.

Smell: A lot of grain, some hints of citrus, banana, and spices. Very crisp, slightly bitter scent.

Taste: Bittersweet grains, a bit of hops? Pretty bold taste up front but doesn't leave a whole lot after swallowing.

Feel: Smooth, normal carbonation, leaves a slightly dry, sticky aftertaste.

Overall: I personally am not a huge fan of wheat beers so I didn't love this, but it's pretty refreshing, easy drinking, nothing about it was *offensive* to my palate, haha. If you like wheat beers, give it a try.

Pours a hazy gold colour. Smells like cereal malts, pale malts, fruity yeasts, and not much else. Tastes very carbonated, light-bodied, light malts, sweet yeast, fruity, banana, and a slight spiciness.

L-Orange/oak colored..big frothy head..

S-Yeasty....cloves, lemons, and light banana

T-Ok hefeweizen flavor...lemons and cloves are predominant but there is some light banana

F-Biggest issue is the overcarbonation, over spritzy feel to this...detracts from the flavors

O-I had high hopes for this one but it falls in the middling range....bring down the carbonation and it would fall more in the 3.75 area
