3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz from a six-er from Grocery Outlet, Salem. $5.99
Surprisingly "authentic" looking hefe..cloudy orange with a nice white head.
OK aromas..spicy,citric,earthy and phenolic.
Taste s pretty much the same as the aroma..rather peppery even..semi-dry and bitter end.
Palate is fine for the style.
Not a bad hefe actually for this side of the Atlantic and for sitting forelorn in a grungy discout Grocer.
