Thanks to FlyingBison for coming through on this. Like an American pale wheat that has a sourness, only more aggressive wheat and carbonation. This is not a smooth hefeweizen

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle courtesy of JPDIPSO who plucked it from my wishlist into a trade. Why did I think this was from Washington DC? Oh well. Fairly clear golden body, with a white head that starts out well but diminishes quickly. Sweet fruity aroma has a belgian yeast quality to it. Sweet flavour with more muted fruit and malt. Some hops in the finish. More ’belgianness’ in the aftertaste. Average palate. Decent beer, but not much of weizen. Doesn’t seem to achieve the status described in other peoples ratings. Durf.

I tried it at first without swirling the bottle to stir up the yeast, and I wasn’t too fond of it. You must swirl the bottle or do something to stir up the sediment at the bottom, in order to fully experience this brew. Once I added the yeast the beer took on a whole new character. The spice became well balanced and the body was much smoother. There is a lot of clove flavor and aroma in there. It is a very accurate representation of its style. One of the best American made Hefe Weizens around.
