look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Pours a pale straw colour, hazy. White head, thin and pretty lacking. OK I guess.

Slight tartness on the nose, banana and apple coming through. Just a hint of mild spice. Par for the course, nothing too special.

Taste is a bit weak, some banana esters and other fruit, with a touch of anise on there. Fairly sweet and fruity characters throughout, particularly on the back where I'd prefer more spice esters to come through.

Not a very full bodied hefe, quite light and slightly dry without much spice oomph. Bit of light sizzle from the carbonation.

Drinkable though, and accessible. Good entry platform for Six String's range.

Hybrid review - I had both on tap and also grabbed a squealer from the brewery.

Appearance - Very cloudy gold, one finger head, good head retention.

Smell - wheat, yeast, lemon.

Taste - yeast, lemon, hint banana tho under-represented for style.

Mouthfeel - nicely carbonated and light on tap, lost some of that in growler, consumed five hours after fill.

Overall - Hef seems a horribly poorly made style in Aus, however, this reverses that trend. Good solid offering from the Coast. I would tend toward not filling a growler with this style of beer in future, tho.
