12 oz bottle poured into a Devil's Backbone weizen.

Pours a chilled golden orange with a massive foamy white head that has excellent retention and leaves abundant lacing. Rich banana aroma with mild clove and pepper with hints of orange throughout. Sweet bubblegum malt body with rich banana yeast and a soft clove finish. Slightly thicker than expected body, well cabonated and a soft, clean finish. A little high in ABV, but my favorite American Hefe regardless.

Yet another great extra from Corbet - thanks again! Poured cold and hazy into a Portsmouth tulip. It's a dark straw yellow-orange with a good amount of haze and a beautiful thick head.

The smell is of bubblegum and wheat, the taste is a great balance of sweet and just the right hint of citrus bitter - orange and lemon. The mouthfeel is spot-on as clean with just a bit of residual tartness. There are plenty of wheat ales out there, but this is the standard to hit. Love it!

Yet another beer my man GDBEERMAN hooked up in our trade! Thanks Rob!

Poured from brown 12oz bottle to NBB globe as I have no weizen glasses.

A - The bee pours a hazy gold color with a huge 2.5 bubbly white head. Excellent retention and lacing.

S - Hefeweizen! Lots of nice aroma: the nice hefeweizen yeast character in your nose immediately: clove, banana, fruit. Light malt character in the sweetness.

T - Very fruity and sweet immediately. Nice hints of banana, apples, citrus meld well with the toasted malt sweetness. A hint of honey. The yeast flavor isn't as pronounced as I expected which is nice. Mild bitterness. Finishes fruity and crisp. Very good.

M - Good carbonation and medium bodied.

O - While Hefeweizens aren't my favorite this is an excellent beer! Top Hefeweizen I've had so it's a nice treat. Not too overpowering on the flavors and very well balanced. Extremely refreshing! Thanks Rob!

Note: This review was a re-post from my former account, jmkratt, which was hacked and I lost all my reviews...sorry for the redundancy.
