Style: Hefeweizen

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 4.80%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
The dream begins with open top fermentation. At high krausen a foamy, rocky yeast head crests the sides of the fermenter releasing notes of black pepper and spicy clove. Unfiltered and cloudy with yeast, it's slightly tart & downright refreshing.

Poured from 12oz bottle into a weizen glass.

Appearance: cloudy pale-orange hue with a light effervescence and nearly 3 fingers of pillowy ivory foam. Looks appetizing.

Smell: nice wheaty aroma with a touch of graininess. Big yeast character here demonstrating lots of clove and a whiff of banana. Quite good indeed.

Taste: flavor very closely reflects the character found in the aroma. Mostly clovey but with a refreshing hint of banana right at the end. Usually I'm a bigger fan of banana flavor in my hefeweizen than clove, but this one is pretty nice anyway.

Mouthfeel: medium body with a big level of creaminess. Good.

Overall: this is a very good and well-crafted hefeweizen, but I'm going to get a little personal here. I probably would not go out of my way for this one again, because like I said I prefer a banana-ey hef to a clovey hef. This is purely a personal preference, though.

Straight up bananas! When you bring it up to drink it hits you like a chiquita uppercut! Slight bubblegum flavor toward the end. The maltiness is medium to heavy with a slight sweetness. Good lacing so the ingredients were nice and fresh. No yeast flavor which should be apparent in wheats and hefs. Overall, not that bad of a brew

This brew pours a cloudy golden color with a small head which does not stick around long and minimal lacing.

The smell is of yeast, wheat, lemon, orange, banana, lemon grass and spice, I believe coriander.

The taste is the same as the smell, there is wheat,yeast, then lemon, then a grassy taste. An orange and bannana bread like taste along with spice, (coriander?) on the back end. Everything mixes together nicely.

The mouthfeel is clean and crisp, just slightly bready and chewy.

Overall this is a great Hefeweizen. It is everything a Hefeweizen should be and then some. It can't be beat on a hot summer day.
