This deep golden brew is slightly cloudy and is topped with a medium thick white head. the aroma is slightly sour yet well balanced with a hint of banana like fruitiness. the flavor is slightly sour and malty with fruity notes and well balanced with hops.

Tastes more like an American Wheat than a German one. Has a very citrusy taste that carries a slight sour aftertaste with it. It would be much improved if it had a touch of coriander or clove. Tastes sort of watery.

Very citrusy - almost cloying sweetness. Sourness throughout. Lemons and bananas, oh my!

Very malty smell, cloudy orange color. Oddly, the malt doesn’t show up in the taste. Strong banana flavor, with some citrus too. To my way of thinking, this almost tastes more like a cider than a beer. Nice and smooth with a sweet taste, goes down easy.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
From an otherwise disappointing brewery, I was expecting a typical clean American wheat. Whodda thunk this would be a near authentic German hefe? Spritzy clove aroma. Pale cloudy gold, small creamy dense head (almost like Guinness - a little weird on top of a hefeweizen). Nice refreshing clove flavor with light malt sweetness and a touch of banana. Dry, clean finish. A nice example, but not as complex as good German ones.

This one was wuite confused. I couldn’t tell whether it was trying to be an american wheat or a bavarian hefe. Sweetish with odd solventy flavors and not much else going for it.

Not the best wheat beer I’ve had, but still quite enjoyable. A nice creamy wheat flavor with mild citrus notes. Easy to drink, and one I’d easily come back to.
