It has a little bit of a citrus kick to it, and there's some maltiness hanging out in the aftertaste. It's not great, but it's not terrible by any means.

Pours clear gold win a small white head dissipates quickly, smells yeasty malty and of wheat, taste brings a sharp bitterness up front smoothed by biscuity malt with for a smooth lasting finish.

12 oz bottle, poured into a tulip glass at approximately 40 degrees F.

Appearance: Pours a bright and sunny straw gold, mildly cloudy beneath a fluffy white head.

Smell: Fruit and spice drifting above a ripe wheat field, redolent with notes of banana and clove. This is one of the first US "hefeweizens" I've smelled that has given me hope that I'm actually about to taste a traditional hefe.

Taste: Tradition confirmed. This beer billows with banana and bubblegum esters, atop a tastefully understated mix of clove and coriander. While nothing particularly stands out, that's not exactly a bad thing - this actually drinks like a hefeweizen.

Mouthfeel: Light while bordering on creamy, this is a quaffable brew!

Overall: I am quite pleased to have found another US version of a hefeweizen that is not a pale wheat ale with a misleading title. Will definitely repeat.
