COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A Hefeweizen brewed in the American style with a refreshing kick. This easy drinking Hef is a lighter style American Hef with an added touch, the touch of orange. Carefully blended a hint of orange with an American Hefeweizen to produce this light easy drinking ale, perfect match for when you looking for something to satisfy your palate without being overly sweet or overbearing.

Actually a redeeming beer for Yakima. I have so far not been impressed with anything I have tried from this brewer but this was a surprise. Pours a nice golden amber, with no head, except for a slight fizzy bit of creaminess at the top. Some residual lacing, that dissipates very quickly and has a nice citrusy, yet somewhat musky aroma. Very crisp and clean, taste like a hefe should, slightly acidic and slightly hoppy, with a great sweet afteraste that is very appealing and nice to cap off the night.

On tap at “Papago” Brewery, also bought a couple of bottles to compare the difference. Pours a decent amber color, the head portly, frothy in texture and a winsome light tan in color with the lace a nice sealing sheet. Sweet orange as in citrus aroma, malt dominates the nose and quite pleasing to the senses, Start sweet and mostly malt, top middling in feel to the palate. Finish is nicely hopped according to style, moderately acidic and the aftertaste dry and lingering and a nice beer for the desert as it’s still 110 degrees Fahrenheit.

Here we go...On tap at the local watering hole. Pours nice, very typical of a hefe. Solid aroma, nice pleasant orange scent. Flavor was abysmal. Scorched the palate with citric bitterness. Could only take a few drinks of this "beer". The mandarin orange ruined the whole character, should not be in a Hefeweizen. Avoid it like the plague.

Hazy orange with a light pungence of orange. An easy Am. wheat profile with the slight detection of orange. A subdued slant on the style--served with an orange slice.
