Had on tap at the Revel Casino in Atlantic City, NJ. Was very fresh and flavorful. This was an elegant version of the style and hit all the right notes, but in a smoother and more mild way.

Picked this up as part of a group to get to a 10% discount, I like Hefe style so figured this was worth trying at that price. Good looking beer that is only okay to the nose. Very good taste, good Hefe. Overall a decent Hefe but not what I would consider special, but certainly enjoyable.

(best by end 06-2014 - poured into an Innis & Gunn fluted goblet)

A: appropriately cloudy after initially pouring out alarmingly bright... light, nectarine skin, yellow-amber... pretty, silky sheen to the moderately-compact foam - seems like it wanted to hold, at first, but it soon falls flat then almost vanishes entirely

S: smells like wheat malt, maybe a smidge of clove ester... mild fog of citrus peel, no notable banana... almost a pilsner-like grain and mild hop note... not terribly bready or yeasty

T: more doughy flavors straight off the bat, bit of a staling roll crust finish... bit of that yeasty dough with a hint of it turning over tangy in the aftertaste... big wheat malt flavor in the aftertaste as well - I'll chew on some kernels from the half-sack I keep for homebrew in my kitchen, and the lingering taste in this beer is that glutenous, mildly chalky note I get when I'm chewing and chewing and the junk won't break down - it's like gum - speaking of which, there's a faint background hint of that as well

M: on the thinner side, but not exactly light-bodied... upper part of the flow has a delicate sudsy wash, bigger bubbles it seems... bit compact, gummy almost, with absence of a firm, spritzy carbonation

O: this may very well be on its last legs... was fridge-kept for months prior... overall, not bad - don't think i would go and buy and couple cases and let them sit around for months... likely a bit livelier in a fresher state, perhaps a brighter display of the esters
