look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

A - A beautiful Unflitered Hefe with a crisp medium bodied orange. A Full and vibrant head (three -four fingers, light white color) which lingered on the glass. A considerable amount of carbonation bubbles and a very nice glow when held up to the light

S - beautiful odor of citrus and wheat with undertone of cloves. Crisp, sharp, and clean

T- not a heavy body but certainly not watery; initial taste is banana and orange, merges into a wheaty and yeasty middle and a move prominent citrus with a nutty and clove end where the hops give a nice kick.

M - a nice bubbly beer, but not overkill. The body is perfect for a summer's day; light to medium with consistency but no watered-down feeling at any time.

O - Drink this in the warmer summer months after a hot day and it is perfect; drink it in the colder fall or spring days and you might feel wanting a little more body but still very satisfied. If I had to pick a beer to drink between the months of May and August, this beer would be in the running and perhaps leagues beyond the pack. Not a complex beer but certainly well-made and extremely satisfying. Be sure to buy two because you will certainly want another one

this is an extrememly light and clean hefe that pours a bullish stark white head that retains well. Clarity is amazing for a wheat. Notes of lemon, and well, lemon. Not much complexity, but would probably be the world's best lawnmower/girly craft beer.

I much prefer a schneider-weisse for it's complexity, but this is one impressive, clean hefe.

Odor: Earthy smell almost like being in field

Pour: Hazy honey color. Unfiltered, Heavy head, slowly dissipates, leaves a long lasting lace. Poured in a tulip pint.

Taste: This is what a wheat beer is supposed to taste like. Very complex. Starts with a taste of wheat with banana overtones. Can taste the clove used as well. Slight hops, but not bitter. Light to Medium body. Very creamy.

This is an amazing beer! I will be buying this many times over. Normally I hate the taste of banana in things, but somehow, it goes well with beer. Not over powering like a laffy taffy, but just subtle and leaves a slight lingering taste after every drink. Fantastic!

A - Classic hefeweizen haziness, permeated by appetizing spice-brown colours.

S - Smells wondrous: yeast, refreshing wheat and a dab of citrus.

T - Very clean flavours. Crisp and refreshing. In a different league from the last hefeweizen I had - Sierra Nevada Kellerweis.

M - Beautifully balanced. Just the right level of carbonation.

O - One of the finest hefeweizen’s I’ve ever had the pleasure of drinking; it’s right up there with Schneider Weisse Tap 7 and Weihenstephaner.
