I had the fancy 22 oz. bottle with the ceramic cap and it was completely flat. Here I am reviewing the 12 oz. bottle and it was OK.
A: Pours hazy gold under a 2” frothy white foam collar that grips the side of the glass.
S: Light fruit, a hint of banana, very minimal clove, whitwe bread.
T: Yeast driven. Has a rich yeasty malty sweetness with light fruit. The banana flavors are medium light and the clove flavors are light.
F: Creamy, medium full body, medium high carbonation.
O: This is an easy to drink hefeweizen. Those looking for big banana and clove flavors might want to look elsewhere.

Poured from bottle into a pint glass

Appearance – The beer pours a slightly hazy golden-orange color with a small head of bubbly white foam. The head fades super-fast, leaving almost no lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell – The aroma of the beer is heaviest of a yeasty smell along with other aromas of a more wheaty and bready smell. Mixed with these smells are some aromas of fruit and spice, with the fruit being a mix of orange, banana, and pear and the spice being of a clove and coriander nature.

Taste – The taste begins as a blend of fruit and wheat with the fruit being of an orange and pear nature. There is also a decent showing of some yeast and spice from the start with these flavors getting stronger as the taste moves onto the end. The spice is heaviest of a coriander nature upfront with more and more clove and pepper joining later on. Other sweeter tastes of banana and a slightly candied sugar taste join the flavor profile later on, leaving one with a rather sweet, yeasty, fruity, and nicely spiced flavor to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the thinner side with a carbonation level that is rather average. For the fruity, sweet, and yeasty tastes of the brew the feel was rather nice making for a rather crisp and refreshing but flavorful brew overall.

Overall –A rather nice easy drinking and slightly sweeter and yeastier hefe. Not a bad summer style brew.
