Radiant yellow color with a touch of cloudy unfiltered haze, this Hefe had a brilliant foamy head that was bright white and poured well.

In typical Hefe fashion the scent was mostly banana with an ending of clove. Nicely fruity the aromas were very typical of the style.

As goes the scent so does the taste with banana up front an clove ending. A bready, doughy taste hits towards mid sip and is very appropriate.

Overall, this is a nicely done standard of the genre with a crisp refreshing feel and a very nice price.

With the tendencies to always create uniqueness in the contemporary craft beer market, sometimes comfort can be found in the classic styles. Blue Stallion's Hefeweizen is one such beer- as the southern German style boasts a tremendous amount of complexity, variety and charm and does so on an effortless bready base.

Blue Stallion's rendition pour with a tall and slender column, shedding a creamy, pillowy white froth. Deeply golden in its hue, the beer's scent is redolent with sugar cookie, citrus, banana, clove, vanilla and soft minty hops. To taste, the bready-sweet flavor is creamy, savory, doughy and confection-like.

As the taste transpires, the sweetness relaxes slowly and keeps the session bready and sweet. As the fruit esters emerge, banana flavor leads the pack with a quick follow-up of lemon, apple, orange and cantaloup. Counter to the fruit are the spices of clove, white pepper, vanilla and faint cumin. Trailing hops are subtle and offers a mild minty, grassy, spicy bitterness to accessorize the yeast spices and help to balance the residual malt and fruit flavors.

Medium-bodied from start to finish, the beer's expressive carbonation keeps the wheat fluffy, creamy and lush. Its smooth texture lends a high rate of drinkability with its refreshing, thirst-quenching properties. A short aftertaste of banana and clove provide brief echoes of flavors after the sweetness has faded.

Crisp, light brown ale remniscent of an IPA, not quite as hoppy. Poured in a glass from tap. Great citrus zest, lingers but has a great aftertaste. Would definitely be a good summer afternoon drink.
