3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Comes out of the tap a hazy, opaque honey golden with a thick, pale orangy-beige head. Aroma is wheaty with just a little bit of citrus, a mix of orange and lemon. Flavor is refreshing, wheaty and malty with a citrus undertone, and just a bit of an unpleasant sour taste - but maybe this was not from their best batch. Texture is fairly smooth and thick and rather tingly. A good beer for a sweltering July day in Georgia.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Appearance: Served up a clouded, dark burnished yellow body with a scant head from a tall pour into the clear Solo cup.
Smell: Hum-D smells of malted wheat and pale malted barley with notes of honey and somewhere around 5-6 pieces of honey-flavored morningtime cereal, a portion of ripe banana, some dried lemon peel, and some cloves.
Taste: Fairly upfront about its wheat maltiness, with a sweet taste of crisp honey candy. Light grain accent. The prototypical squashed bananas and lightly tart lemon with a dusting of spiciness. No more than a low bitterness is ever felt. Wheat-boosted smoothness on the finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium-plus carbonation, some fluffiness contributed from the malted wheat and ample suds.
Overall: A good, satisfying hefe. Enjoyed a few pints trying to beat the heat at the annual sausage festival on the 5 Seasons.
