1Pt. 9Fl Oz. Bottle. Hazy orange color with a slightly pink head. Ester smell with hints of citrus. A little darker than the Hefe's I've had. There is also a lack of body to the brew.. a little light on the malt I think. It satisfies but does not knock my socks off...

Not the greatest hefeweizen, but it absolutely nails that iconic German wheat and barley taste. Could use more banana and clove flavor. Good head and head retention.

A lovely fluffy off-white head with a lovely deep amber and cloudy beer underneath it. Very smooth to taste and gulp . Slightly higher carbonation than is perfect but it's still really drinkable, nontheless. The thing that lets this beer down and leads to it not rivaling the kings of the weissbier world is the flavour of the beer. It just doesn't have the depth of banana, yeast or other obvious tastes of its rivals. It's still a lovely beer to drink but it just can't compete with others for pure taste.

This beer was poured into a weizen glass from the 12oz bottle.

The beer poured with a hazy straw colored body and a white fluffy head. The head does not hold as well as you would expect from this style and does not lace as much either. The smell is a typical wheat and bready smell. The taste is similar, and had the characteristics of a good weizen, but is just a bit on the weak side. The mouthfeel is also a bit thinner than the best ones out there. This is a nice beer, just not in the same league as the best out there.
