Pours an insanely cloudy peachy gold, easily one of the cloudiest hefe's I've seen, with a thick white head and some nice lacing. Smell is all hefe, lots of banana and clove, with nice yeastiness. Taste is very banana, with yeast, cloves and a spicy bitter finish. Mouthfeel is medium to full bodied, pretty thick for a hefeweizen, high carbonation, very smooth and refreshing. An exceptional hefeweizen, I was very surprised and pleased with this one, amazingly good.

Served in a shaker pint glass at the brewpub.

My father seemed to really enjoy this, so in I shall dive as well. It pours a hazed pale lemonade topped by a finger of white micro-foam. The nose comprises lemon zest, coriander, cardamom, banana, cracked pepper, and light clove. The taste beats to pretty much the same drummer, though the pepper is toned down just a little bit. The body is light, with a light moderate carbonation and a fairly crisp finish. Overall, a nice little hefe, just a bit too airy for greatness, but it is very drinkable and thoroughly enjoyable.

On tap at the Ram.

(A)- Pours a cloudy goldenrod color. Some tan froth.

(S)- A yeasty biscuit with lemon and banana.

(T)- Similar to the smell. Straightforward, but a nice combo of biscuit, lemon, and banana.

(M)- A good carbonation level. A nice smooth balance to it as well.

(D)- Quite the solid Hefe. Nothing fancy, but just an easy drinking enjoyable beer. Maybe one of their best.

On tap at the brewpub on 7/24/12

My intention was to review only the Big Red IPA but after my wife pointed out that the Raspberry Blonde Ale was made by dumping raspberry syrup into a pint glass and then pouring the regular Blonde Ale into the glass. I decided right there to tick-up the tasting flight by allowing only one line from my steno pad to each beer.

Irresponsibly-deserved Tick #8

A) Cloudy, golden orange. Short foam with ring retention.

S) Sweet banana and wheat. Clove overtones.

T) Dull taste of timid wheat and clove.

M) Thin, watery feel with low carbonation.
