3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft. Hazy light golden body with a short white head. Aroma of banana and clove, toasted grain, light floral hops. The flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter and lightly acidic. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet, lightly bitter and lightly to moderately acidic. Medium body, watery/slick texture, lively carbonation. A decent rendition of a German hefe. An acidic tang in the finish after a sweet start. Grainier than better hefes, but still clean enough to be enjoyable.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pour on tap at the brewpub at LAX, hazy orange pour with thin white head, lacing. Aroma brought some lemon, orange, hints of banana and clove but restrained, hints of slight grain as well. Taste is a mix of grain, husk, bready notes into some lemon, finishing fairly sweet. Not bad, but nothing amazing for sure.

Man do I love this hef! In my humble opinion, one of the best American Hefeweizens. Love the aroma, the wheat and malted barley are fantastic! Taste could be more pronounced but overall great American hef.

Sharp, green off- the tree banana and sugary bubblegum. Hazy yellow with a frothy head. Strong sweet , spicy banana and clove taste, maybe a touch too sweet if I have to name a drawback. Crisp and refreshing mid weight body.

Sampler at Seattle location. Thin yellow beer with thin head. Thin, sweet and watery but with some of the usual clove, banana, bubblegum, wheat you’d expect from a Hefe.
