4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
In short: Fresh banana-hefe and plenty of grapefruity/citric hops. Wonderful
How: Tap at brewpub, Maple Shade location NJ
The look: Cloudy yellow body topped by a medium white head
In long: Nose has the fresh bananas I’m expecting from a german hefe but also a whole lot of grapefruity hops. Taste is fresh bananas, notes of mangos, lots of moderately bitter grapefruits, some lemon, some green pine needles. The dominant flavors of bananas and bitter white grapefruits worked so well together in a way I had never experienced before. Tasty and very refreshing. Full and lively body. This is quite a treat for a below 5% beer. I’d like to tell everybody who love the same beers as I do how good I thought this was but I don’t feel like talking to myself right now.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
On draft at the Newark location. This one impressed and should make the style proud. I go back and forth on these neuvo styles that seem so trendy, but this was a great combination of seemingly PacNW-hops and the standard hefe-base, a paring that I wouldn’t expect to work great together? Justin at IH may have outdone Brooklyn/Schneider here, imho. Pour was as expected, looked just like a hefe. The aroma was dead on with the hefe ester and yeast base with citrus and pine hops complementing. The flavor followed, a well done hopping that didn’t overwhelm everything else about the wheat base. Really quite nice. I hope it comes back every so oftne.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
20110530 tap at Newark, listed as Hoppy Weiss. Cloudy golden with lingering white froth. Aroma is hoppy as all get-out with lots of grapefruit and light pine, mild pizza dough, mild lemonade, some hefe yeast, clove. Airy, nicely carbonated, a tad prickly. Brilliantly bitter finish which is super refreshing without the dumb sweetness of many hoppy wheats. Loved it. Gonna bring a growler to rbsg.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap at Maple Shade. Pours out a cloudy light golden color with a small white head. Aroma is of some spices, light fruity yeast, and a nice citrus hop note. Taste is complex for the lower AVB, wheaty malt notes, spices, some nice citrus hop bitterness in there on the finish and throughout. Definitely a good wheat beer.
