Not my favorite style, but perhaps the best American example of the style. Pours a hazy gold with a soft foamy head. Smell is bright clove and banana esters, with some grass and hay. Taste is mild, grassy and citrusy. Feel is smooth as silk. Couldn't ask for a better American Hefe.

Not my fave style but I can accept this is a great representation of the style. Smooth and hazy and wheat is very evident. Probably the best hefe I've had though 3.75 probably where
I top out for the style.

Very good HefeWeizen!! I am not a fan of this style of beer whatsoever, but this one is certainly drinkable. I would definitely try it again - perfect for long walks on the beach with that special someone according to @Mpontiakos

View: hazy, bright yellow
Smell: Some strange smell to it, a lot of maltiness
Taste: still that strange taste is there, and still a lot of maltiness too. Little hoppiness. Some citrus taste.

A nice hefe, but I still can't make out what that strange taste is and how I feel about it.

I really like the look of these cans, and the beer inside is good as well. This hefeweizen is very smooth and worth a try. Is has some definite Brady smells and flavors but they are not lingering.

Great - no, outstanding - Hefeweizen! This is my favorite beer style and this is easily in the top five of my list for this style. Golden, cloudy color. Smells of citrus, tastes of citrus and wheat - perfect balance of the two. Aftertaste is smooth and refreshing. Great local brewery with a world class beer.
