Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a cloudy, dark golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is pretty much missing, some faint hints of citrus. Taste is of citrus, wheat, tart, easy drinking. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a bit more tangy than I'm used to in this style, but a pretty good beer.

Crooked Heffy has a medium, white head, a clear, bubbly, gold-straw appearance, that clouds into a murky, gray-orange-gold, after the "swish & pour", and minimal lacing left behind. The aroma is of white wheat bread, and the flavor is of white wheat bread. Mouthfeel is medium, and Crooked Heffy finishes dry and drinkable. If you want a 7% wheat beer that tastes remarkably like a high-gravity lager (ex. Hurricane High Gravity), this could be one for you! Also, it is $1.99 a 12-oz. bottle, as opposed to $2.29 for a 40-oz. bottle of Hurricane HG.

Poured from bottle into pint glass

A: Pours as a golden, orange, and slightly opaque appearance. Slight off-white head that dissipates quickly.

S: light citrus, lemony notes.

T: Very good taste to me. It has a strong citrus backbone with the flavors of bananas sneaking through. Some very good ester flavors.

M: Medium

O: One my favorites from Mississippi and my favorites Heffy so far.
