look: 3.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

A- Great looking German style bottle with a green label....the beer itself pours a golden yellow yeast hazed color with a head that starts out a couple of fingers thick and settles into a dense film over the brew. Not much lacing at all, but rather an oily film on the side of the glass....carbonation is hard to see what is happening...looks fairly typical of a German Hefe.

S- Tantalizing aromas of rich spices, such as peppercorn, cinnamon, nutmeg, and heavy clove. There is a citrus fruit background as well, with grapefruit, orange and perhaps some lemon zest......Earthy hopped finish that lingers around the nostrils!

T- The flavors follow the aromas closely, with much more blended in there as well. It starts out rather malty, with buttery yeast and bread like. The body is of baking spices and citrus fruits, plus some hints of banana extract. The finish is grainy and light, from the wheat used, and there is a fresh leafy hop cone flavor that is clean and zesty on the palate....not a real lingering flavor afterwards.

M/O- Champagne like carbonation....very fine and plenty of explosions on the palate allow full flavor profiles to shine! The body of the beer is solidly medium....slightly chewy....like raw dough and the alcohol is very well hidden to boot! Highly drinkable and a very nice all seasons kind of brew....goes great with a red cheddar and some Garlic sausage! Another winner from a winning brewery! Next time theres a world war, I hope the citizens miss the brewery lol!

Hazy golden color with a super strong amount of activity. Creamy and frothy white 2 finger head, lasting around 10 to 15 minutes, with average legs.

Aromas of citrus, caramel, cookies, and faint banana yeast. Flavors of lemony citrus, toffee, faint ester fruits, roasted grains, faint coriander and noble spices. Perfect zesty sharpness with an incredible sugary bread taste.

Smooth creamy oily full body with champagne like heavy carbonation. Medium strength finish, ending with a roasted malts feel, citrus tongue coat, toffee feel, a little grassy, and faint oak.

Overall exquisite quality craft. Delicious complex flavors that are perfectly balanced and intensified. Insane bread and wheaty feel, best ever tasted. Incredible citrus sharpness, almost feels like a witbier. Thick satisfying body that is very filling. Would drink this all day long, one of the best beer ever.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Look: dark yellow, bright white head, very creamy. The beer is very lively, a lot of bubbles. A lot of yeast at the bottom of the bottle.
Smell: Sweet malty smell of the hefeweizen. Some spiciness, some sweet smell, fruity also. Some banana smell.
Taste: sweet at the beginning of the maltiness, but at the end, there is a lot of hoppiness, which gives a nice kick to it.
Feel: Light-medium body. It has all it needs for a world class hefeweizen, but has some strange taste to it, in the hoppiness. A great brew, and different from other hefe. Would buy it again.

This beer has a touch more of a bitter hop bite to it than most hefeweizens but still plenty of banana esters as I would hope for in a good German example of the style. An interesting and delicious twist on the style.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

L: cloudy orange and yellow with lacing on edge
S: banana, yeast, and coriander
T: Banana, yeast, orange peels, cloves
F: Thinner than a hefty Hefe for sure. Good carbonation

Overall: A great Hefe that falls short of my favorites list only due to a slightly watery mouthfeel.

L:Light-brass coloured, slight haze, one inch of which, white head when poured into bavarian wheat glass
S: Cloves, nutmeg, yeast, banana, wheat, white bread, orange zest, subtle hop spiciness
T: Much like the nose, cloves, banana bread, white flour, orange peel, touch of malt sweetness
F: Medium bodied, well carbonated, fairly rich mouthfeel, finish is slightly sweet with an ever so slight bitterness
O: Solid hefeweizen, nice balance of banana and clove, great wheat malt character, hops are noticeable but in the background. Worth a try!

In a comparison with the original Tap 7, this benefits from the higher abv -- more flavor. Very good; best of style.
