500 ml bottle into weizen glass, no bottle dating. Pours hazy deep orange/copper color with a 1-2 finger dense light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of lemon, orange zest, pear, apple, light banana/clove/pepper, wheat, toasted biscuit, herbal, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of citrus/floral hops, fruity yeast, and bready malt notes; with solid strength. Taste of lemon, orange zest, pear, apple, light banana/clove/pepper, wheat, toasted biscuit, herbal, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness. Light herbal/spicy bitterness and wheat tangon the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, orange zest, pear, apple, light banana/clove/pepper, wheat, toasted biscuit, herbal, floral, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a while. Very nice robustness, complexity, and balance of citrus/floral hops, fruity yeast, and bready malt flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and medium-full body; with a very smooth, creamy/bready, and slightly sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very good and unique hefeweizen style. All around good robustness, complexity, and balance of citrus/floral hops, fruity yeast, and bready malt flavors; and very smooth and easy to drink. Even with the use of Kolsch yeast, you still a nice amount of flavor complexity and balance; with subtle banana/clove notes due to the wheat malts. A very enjoyable offering.

this is outstanding hefe type beer, different in that its slightly hoppy for the style, and that the yeast must have been fermented a little cooler, or its a more mild strain than normal, becuase that banana fruit thing is really mellowed out here, still there, but way subtle in comparison. orange hued beer, not as blonde as the industry standard, and far more clear too. a nose of grassy german hops and the yeast, with a really fresh wheat base. i always have in my head these beers are older when they show up here and make it home with me eventually, but this tastes really fresh, none of that dusty stale german thing. a slight spice even from the hops in the flavor, almost like some rye in there, dried and interesting, awesome. i like the hops in this, i like the body from the wheat, i like the dry but still somehow long flavorful finish. there arent many beers like this out there, and while i have loved everything i have had from these guys, this may be my favorite so far. a new take on traditional, i will be buying this again.

Poured from a brown 16.9 oz. bottle. Has a tan/brown color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is mild, wheat and banana. Taste is sharp wheat, green apple, some banana. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall, not the flavor profile I would associate with this style, but a drinkable and decent beer.

From the 500 ml. bottle. Sampled on June 6, 2015.

Basic yellow-orange pour with a short-lived off-white head.

The aroma is toasty and malty with grassy hops. Typical German brew.

Light and refreshing body meets the style

The taste has a nice German malt toasty character with a vibrant grassy hop finish. About as balanced as it can get for the style. Nothing great. Nothing bad. Just on target.

What better way to celebrate ~18 hours of post-St. Patty's snow completely melting during a sunny Saturday afternoon than with a half-litre of hoppy hefe?

A - Pour to a boot reveals a darkish orange beer with some haze and plenty of rising carbonation bubbles. An off-white head retains nicely.

S - Crackery wheat, slight banana, some caramel sweetness, apple and various light citrus fruit.

T - Flavors a little more poppin' here, a decent balance is struck between hefe and hoppy but neither comes off very strongly. Some more banana bread presence, grainy wheat, pale malt, herbal and earthy hops, sugar cookie, some grape, a little bit of vanilla.

M - Good biggish body with decent carbonation. Light bitterness with a somewhat dry finish. Pretty easy drinking.

O - I wouldn't mind drinking this anytime, though it's on the plain side and doesn't really deliver anything too special. The hefeweizen side is decent, the extra hops don't add a whole lot. Still pretty tasty.

Poured from the bottle into a wheat ale glass. Bottle date uncertain.

Classic amber body, red to brown, fairly opaque and some fine carbonation up on the rise, mostly of pin head sized bubbles but not excessive. Head comes up a little frothy settling with about three fingers of very light tan appearance, and clumping quite a bit with some good staying power. A dark weizen going on indeed.

Real nice soft and sweet aroma. Mild sensing brown sugar and a bit of mushy fruit. Large on the caramel action and coming out with even a touch of vanilla as well. Some tea like aromas round out as well interestingly with a sweet softness as well, very nice.

Palate comes a bit more subdued. Lighter malt body if a little wet. Some chalk like aftertaste but some of the classic chewy grain manages to come though. A very noticeable herbal to tea like bitterness on the finish but not overly large or excessive. Mixes well with some neutral grainy character, and bringing some more of that tea grass and herbality on on the palate.

Overall an interesting take, not a big ester brew either, kind of fun but not unfortuantely that remarkable but at least memorable.
