Not bad, but shouldn't be labeled as a Hefeweizens.

Pours a dark hazy orange with a creamy white head. Large chunks of sediment are evident in the beer.

Smells of citrus and white bread.

Taste comes through with some citrus and a bit of spice. Main taste is the usual good beer notes.

Mouth feel is a bit light with a crisp finish.

There really is not a lot of spice or citrus here. What was there was a very good and refreshing beer. I like this one quite a bit and again do not get the low ratings. This is a tasty beer and folks should give it a try.

One last review for the night, and then I'm retiring to the couch with some Albacore tuna.

A : Typical Hefeweizen color, golden and slightly hazy, roughly 60% transparent. The head is large and creamy, and stays around for awhile. It's at about 2 fingers when poured, 1 finger stable.

S : There's really not much here. Clean water, wheat chaff, banana peel at the bottom of the garbage. Weaker than a senior citizen's handshake. I'm sorely disappointed.

T : Some traditional Weizen flavors come out, with banana chips, some sourness of a berry, and a highly malty presence. Flavor it does not have, but drinkability in spades. Still...a weak representation and only slightly better than the aroma.

F : Creamy at the front, dissolves into water at the back. Carbonation is adequate and appropriate. The drinkability is supreme and is the best thing going for it.

O : What a weak beer. I'd actually lump this into an American Adjunct Lager category for its refreshing quality and total lack of substance. As I said, drinkability is great - and that's important, but this beer is good for not much else than pounding one down on a hot day while having a little wheat and banana there resting on your palate.
