I will always remember this beer as my first Hefewiezen. Was the easiest to find for me being a domestic beer and I thoroughly enjoy it, hard to compare to imports but still my favorite domestic hefe. Fruitier taste than expected, good mouthfeel, cloudy appearance, very low hoppy-ness.

Poured from a bottle into an over-sized wine glass. Dark apricot color with a three finger head. Smells like steel? I taste the signature banana and clove but it's a danker and waterier version of better Hefes. A little bitter, but not in a good hops way. The mouthfeel is medium to light, overall I'd rather have something else.

Pale Amber pour(9)but more like a murky apricot; non existent white head. Heavy sediment in bottom of glass. Whimper of a floral nose. Breadth with a little carbonated floral zing. Lite and watery. Powdery rose petal finish.

Served on tap. Cloudy orange with marginal head. Taste is fruitier than expected with a hint of grain. Decent mouthfeel. Not a bad hefeweizen compared to other American manufacturers.

On tap this is a very nice hefe. Not sure why it has such a low rating, perhaps it's worse in bottle as my review was based on tap. Clean and crisp, could be a little creamier on the mouthfeel, but overall not a bad beer at all.
