3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at their first "brewery tour" which turned into just a huge gathering of people and not much of a tour. As for the beer: hazy golden pour with a fluffy white head. Lots of spicy clove with a bit of banana/bubblegum sweetness in the nose. Flavor was the same, but it was a bit too sweet for me - a sentiment I heard from a few others as well.. Finish was a bit chewy - definitely more full bodied than some other hefes. Nice beer and probably a good flagship.

Pours slightly hazy straw colored with a wealth of smooth white head. Aroma is lightly spiced with bananas and wheat. The yeast is also fairly discernible on the nose. Flavor is relatively smooth and light. The beer itself is not bad in any way but there feels like there is something lacking.

Honestly I had to have this in the can cuz I'm on vacation and didn't have the proper glasswear. It great on this hot summer day and a nice change from all the ipa's I've had recently.

True to style Hefeweizen was very good. Heavy clove nose and the ripe bananas dominated the taste. Looked good too. At the mellow mushroom.

Bottle @ home, thanks to jcnielsen for sending! Pours a slightly hazy golden yellow appearance with a thin tan head. The aroma is fairly spicy (pepper, nutmeg, clove), and moderately fruity (lemon, banana, pear). Fairly high carbonation. A little goopy and somewhat overly sweet. Spritzy, banana, lemon flavor. Ehh.
