A: pale cloudy yellow, silky-shiny/creamy white cap, billowy head

S: allspice and banana custard, fresh-baked dinner rolls, faint springtime floral notes... bright, inviting aromas all-around

T: sour-dough, sugar cookie aftertaste with a hint of spice.... lemony, flowery hops.... though, perhaps lacking a decent bit of that bready malt flavor I enjoy in many examples of the style

M: perfect sudsy-soft, medium-light body... initially fills the palate, vaguely nectar-y, then drops dry

O: glad I finally got around to trying this... quite a fantastic hefeweizen - one of the best

Serving: Bottle into pint
Served: 21 February 2014

Appearance: A hazy, rich golden color with a foamy white head. Incredible head retention as one would expect from a wheat beer. Lots of carbonation streaming up the sides.

Smell: Sweeter than a Weihenstephaner, and slightly more fruity. Lots of banana, but also some notes of apple or pear.

Taste: Sweet banana with a white-wine overlay. Different from other hefeweizen's I've had but not in a bad way. The white-wine notes definitely stuck out at first, but I warmed up to them. As the beer warmed, the banana notes really started to shine.

Mouthfeel: At first, almost like champagne, but eventually the carbonation mellowed a bit and the drink became silky smooth on the palate.

Overall: A great hefeweizen and one with a distinctly different character than Weihenstephaner. Certainly worth trying if you like hefeweizens. A great beer overall, and one I would highly recommend.

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.
