Shit tons of this over the years, and most recently a bottle at departmental picnic. About as good and as bland as most other American hefes out there, I suppose. Same cloudy gold pour you’d expect, appropriately carbonated and lively mouthfeel. Slight lemon verbena in there to complement the sharp yeast, a bit more bracing than some if I’m feeling charitable.

Murky yellow pour with frothy white head. Aroma is acidic with malt, yeast, and hay permeating. Medium to long lasting sweet duration. Refreshing unfiltered offering.

Solid beer, good flavor, easy to drink. Wish it was a bit thicker/had more mouth feel. Flavor, lemon and orange mix with a noticeable alcohol flavor. After half a bottle I’m also catching a twinge of pepper as well. This is a good beer, which is frustrating to me, as with some slight tweaks it could be great.

Pours golden with average head. Weak aroma, maybe a little citrus and banana. Taste is wheat, a little fruit, a little bitter citrus. Not overly flavorful. Fine, readily available, drinkable.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
En fût. Une bière légèrement embrouillée et plutôt jaune. Un beau col qui laisse une dentelle éparse. Un nez vraiment faible de céréales blanches et de citron. Un goût très aqueux qui ne donne que de pauvres notes de blé et de levure. Une bouche facilement dérangeante avec ses bulles forcées et sa texture très mince. Une finale très courte dans laquelle je ne retiens que très peu de choses intéressantes.

Pours a golden haze, as I be expected for an unfiltered wheat beer. Tastes of mild spice and citrus with little aftertaste. Nice pallet. A good summer beer.

Poured hazy orange with a medium foamy white head that dissipated quickly. Smells like oranges and light yeast. Sweet and malty flavor. Short finish. Pretty bland.

2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours hazy, yellow-gold with a tall, just-off-white head.
Taste is very watered down....
The normal cast of wheat ale characters....
just weakly played.

Iced down can while setting up the yard for a pork shoulder roast. In afternoon filled by a comedy of errors and the general felling like things were just not going my way, this my friend, was not one of the mistakes.
While I agree this is a poor example of a hefe, the gentle wear sweetness whips through the small body, light lemon and spice. It well with my chicken tacos and my surly attitude.
Things are beginning to look up.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured as part of a flight. Pours a hazy golden color with medium head and lacing. Banana/clove on the nose as expected from the style. Okay, but I would be hard-pressed to buy it again given many other choices.
