A- hefe yeast comes through with a little bread, some clove.

Smell: Clove, maybe some bubble gum.

Taste: Strong bubblegum and almost bandaid taste. There is a presence of some spice from the yeast.

Mouthfeel: Sharp from the combination of the high carb and the spice from the hefe yeast.

Overall: The bubblegum/band-aid flavors made this undrinkable. Just not for me. I normally like Hefe's so I was a little surprised.

12oz bottle without a clear best by date. Poured into a hefeweizen glass 9/1/2014.

A- Hazy copper body. Looks like apple cider. Two finger white head with very good retention, but nothing close to what a German hefeweizen would look like. Leaves a thick film on the surface. Not much lacing to be seen. [3]

S- Grainy wheat and a bit of clove. Not much else. I don't get a lot of banana or bubblegum qualities from the yeast here. I'm not sure what's going on here, but this isn't impressing me very much. [2.5]

F- A bit of pale malt sweetness, some wheat, and a sharp bite of clove. As in the nose, there isn't much of banana or bubblegum that I would expect from the hefeweizen yeast. I'm not sure what kind of yeast they used, but it's not quite right. [2.75]

M- Medium body, smooth and not terribly difficult to drink. Not watery, just not a complex flavour profile consistent with what it says it is. Sharp clove bite on the back end. [3]

O- This is a solid beer that doesn't quite fit what I have in mind when I hear Bavarian-style wheat ale. I'm not sure what yeast was used, but it's not anywhere near as interesting as the original German versions. [2.75]

Final score: 2.7375

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

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.

Aroma is clove, bubblegum/sweetbread and a hint of lemon. The flavor is clove, bubblegum, spices, a hint of vegetables and a sour/tart finish.
