22 oz. bottle from grocery. Pale yellow pour with medium carbonation and a minimal head. Smells of banana and some wheat. Strong citrus/banana flavors with some sweetness. Nice finish with a bit of fizz. I like it.

This hefeweizen is light and refreshing. Citrus notes in the middle replace the banana and bubble gum flavors so prevalent in the style. This pushes El Jefe solidly into the category of American wheat beer. It's probably my second favorite American wheat beer, behind Boulevard Wheat.

On tap @ Wallingford Pizza House. Pours cloudy straw yellow. Aroma is light spice and citrus. Taste is tart wheat, crisp hops, light citrus, clove spice, and a clean dry finish. Light and delicious. Perfect with a lemon slice. Hale’s kinda flies under the radar in Seattle, but has the occasional gem like this.

Colour: cloudy yellow and orange mix. Nose: Salty butter, very ripe barley, fruit basket. Taste: Pineapple and grapefruit all over!, very tart, late mellow barley. One of the most puckering beers I’ve tasted, surprisingly tolerable though.

Spicy aroma. Nearly no head. Very clear fluorescent yellow. Lengthy sour finish but not overpowering. Not my favorite style, but would drink again.
