3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Pale amber, orange hued, minor haze, lively carbonation with a large foamy white head, sticky lacing. A bit more orange than others, thats for sure. Wheaty nose, pale breadiness as well. No real clove, banana, or bubble gum to mention. Similar tongue, wheaty, a bit sweet, bready, but again... no spices I usually associate with the style. Body and mouthfeel are moderate. Lingering wheat and breadiness. Very simple, clean, but lacking the spices I like to see in a German Hefeweizen.
