4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
A nice summer Hefe. Light citrus and banana...not a lot of clove present...more of an American Hefe rather than European style. Enough taste to enjoy but easy drinking enough to be a porch pounder during the summer.

Served on draft at the brewery. Pours a hazy orange color with a large rocky head. Good head retention. Aroma of wheat with herbal and spicy hops. The taste is the same. Fairly dry. Medium bodied with a lingering bitterness. Nice beer.

Six pack from Wines & More Mansfield. A light lemon brew with inch thick white head. Slightly fizzy. Slightly cloudy. Light citrus-spice aromas. Flavor is light and smooth. Some bread. Light citrus-pepper flavors. No banana at all. More peppery than clove. Finishes dry and slightly bitter. Refreshing though, even if it’s not in the same league as a good German version.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz form a six pack. Paid 10.99 at Table and Vine. Fresh bottle, best by September. Clear gold with a good amount of retention. High, active carbonation. Lemon zest and yeast. nose. Light body. Flavors of orange, lemon and a bit of rind. Lively mouthfeel. Real thin borderline watery. Nice spice note in the finish. Not traditional, very American. Ok summer, don’t have to run out and get more. However, much better then the weak Pyramid hefeweizen I just had.

12oz Bottle, purchased at Wakefield Liquors - Wakefield, RI. Tall cloudy pour with a nice big white head. Aroma is subdued, salty, and clean. Flavors are alright. I’m getting some distinct and noticeable styrofoam right up front, followed by very quiet hefeweizen characters, but almost so few that I would call it such. It feels like an American wheat that was fermented too hot. The body is thin and water. Mostly inoffensive and unexciting.
