Look: Amber with a white foamy head that dissipated after a minute or so and even though the beer was hazy I could see the fast-rising bubbles.

Smell: The first thing I notice is a sweet aroma, maybe a little vanilla, then behind it I get the citrus and bready smells.

Taste: I a nice citrus flavor and a sweet banana flavor with a very minor bitterness but over all it is very plain in flavor.

Feel: The beer leaves a sticky feeling followed by a minor dryness.

Pours a murky orange color with a small white head. Aromas and flavors are musty, semi-fruity, and grain. Low carbonation and a poor mouthfeel, not as creamy as it should be. Paired with a breakfast burrito decently.

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.
