A: Dense tangerine orange color with a thin, spongy, off white head that quickly dissipated. Visible carbonation was hard to determine.

S: A bit of funky tangerines and not much else. Meh.

T: Again a bit of funky tangerines, wheat, mandarin orange. A bit of sour off flavor occurs with concurring sips. Slight hints of musky banana yeastiness is vague but really nothing that defines or solidifies per style.

M: Not a lot of carbonation, a bit washy, medium body, funky hay flavor off the tongue.

O: Flavor does get a bit better mid way through but maybe it just gets more tolerable. Clean yeast profile, not a lot of wheat detection, overall mundane experience with a six pack just asking for disappointment. A struggle to finish.

A - Pours a hazy golden-orange color with a finger of frothy white head atop. The head fades down at a normal pace leaving behind some light lacing.

S - Aroma is a mix of wheat, lemon zest, with a bit of bread and noble hops.

T - Starts off with some sweet wheat with some lightly tart lemon zest. Through the middle some noble hops come through with a hint of bitterness and a bit of bread. The finish is a mix of lemon and citrus hops, with some wheat and a touch of pepper.

M - Light-bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels smooth with a crisp and lightly tart finish.

D - Very drinkable. Very crisp and refreshing, but a touch thin and mild overall.

Appearance: It pours a hazy copper with a rocky head around two fingers thick.

Aroma: Grain, lemon zest, light breadiness with some citrus hop.

Taste: A fairly crisp mouthfeel to start. Light citrus in the front, lemon, touch of grain wisps of banana. Touch of clove and a light dry finish.

Notes: Well it's drinkable overall and the dry finish is a nice plus. Cheers.

Poured from a bottle into a Weizen glass.

A – A hazy straw yellow with a one-finger white head of soapy looking foam. Decent amount of patchy lacing.

S – Doughy malts, a little citrus zest, yeast and subdued hops. Overall aroma is “mild”.

T – Follows the nose, with cereal-like malt grain forward, followed by some bland lemon citrus, and ending with slight hop bitterness. Getting just a slight nuttyness from the grain. Honestly, resembles a pale more than a Hefe. Refreshing enough, but also kind of bland.

M – Light-to-medium bodied and a moderate level of carbonation.

O – A ho-hum brew that brings nothing memorable to the table. Quality ingredients and presentation, but overall just way to subdued for my tastes.

Poured from a 12 oz twist-off bottle into a Sam Adams perfect pint.

A - A medium pour yields about a finger of fizzy white head. It retains for a while, but is mostly held up by the etching in the glass. Body is yellow golden in color with only a slight haziness. Lacing is nonexistent.

S - Smells of sour wheat and grass.

T - As with the nose, this hefeweizen is a little too sour up front, with not a lot of character to back it up. There is a mild pepperyness in the finish.

M - Light bodied and thankfully not overcarbonated.

O - An average wheat ale. I would compare it to a blue moon with just a little more wheat flavor.
