Strong presence of wheat, with the proper amount of coriander and citrus flavor. Served with a lemon, but I took it out as soon as the glass touched my table. Solid flavor, fairly low on carbonation, pale, hazy orange color and a solid 1-2 finger white head. The smell is very pleasant and had a fruity banana & clove hint followed by a tease of the other flavors this beer offers. Easily one of my favorites here and I wish they carried this one year round. Not to mention this may be in the top Hefeweizens I've ever had.

I believe this to be the best beer offered by the Blackhorse, too bad it's a seasonal. A very refreshing hefeweizen one the best I've had. I don't know why people insist on putting that lemon on the glass. Had a nice 2 finger off white head, nice lacing on the galass.

I had the pleasure of drinking this beer from a keg at home back in the mid 90's and had the greater pleasure of knowing the head brewer at the time Travis. I remember sitting on my back lawn watching the sunset and drinking this beautiful beer. Travis has since passed to another realm, but I am sure he is still creating wonderful beers...

Had the pleasure of enjoying this one fresh on its release day, April 10, 2009. Served in a Weizen glass with a garnish of lemon. (Lemon slice was removed before drinking.)

Hazy orange-gold in appearance with a fat meringue of off-white foam that recedes at a leisurely pace to a half-finger crown, leaving thick rings of lace behind on the sides of the glass.

An initial thick whiff of bubblegum melds into faint spicy clove and a bit of fruity banana.

Light in body, with a fairly low carbonation for the style. On the palate, a grainy wheat character blends with a full onslaught of the standard Hefeweizen fare, with a rich Bavarian yeast character leading into a medium-dry, spicy finish.

Quite a pleasant surprise, as fresh as could be and an exceptional example of a Bavarian Weizen that could stand alongside the best Bayerischen examples.
