Pours orange with white head. The foam doesn’t lace the glass particularly well. The beer is a little cloudy. The aroma is largely of wheat - very doughy smell.The flavor is very wheaty. The phenols from the yeast and the overall flavor is a little mild compared to some other authentic hefeweizen, but still a tasty beer. It tastes like bready wheat, with just enough hops to balance. The mouthfeel is a little thin (thanks to a lot of carbonation zip) and little dry. I think I would order a Paulaner or Wiehenstephaner hefeweizen first though.

Had this on tap at Taco Mac. Nice dense head with great lacing. Aroma is heavier on clove than some other hefe’s. It also had a little more of a hint of hope/citrusy. Taste had a little more of a bit than some others and more of malt presence. Definitley a decent hefe, but not quite as good as some others.

Bottled. Unclear, slightly hazy orange beer with a nice white head. Banana, spice, slightly lemony aroma with hints of yeast and cellar. Sparkling, medium to thin mouthfeel and a flavor with banana, cloves, some yeast and citrus. Nice and refreshing with some bitterness in the finish. Like it. Goes very well with summer heat. (060724)

Hermosa corona, como para tomarle foto, precioso color oro a la vista, olor agradable y sabor bastante bueno. Va bien con un piqueo salado, para matar la sed, para refrescarse, para relajarse...buena cerveza!

Picked up a few bottles for cultivating a yeast sample for a hefeweizen. Slightly cloudy, golden yellow. Large, fluffy head with long retention. Wheaty, citrus, malty in the nose. Crisp on the tongue, with straightforward wheat and bread. Mineral and banana notes in a medium finish.
