3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very slightly hazy blonde coloured body with a fast-dying pure white head. Aroma of wheat, yeast, coriander seed, bubble gum, oranges and plenty of hay. Medium-bodied; Very mild flavours, but the wheat and yeast flavours are intense - a lot of soft wheat notes throughout with a very smooth finish. Aftertaste shows hints of the bubble gum, nutmeg and some light coriander seed, but this is all about the wheat - very refreshing! Overall, a very nice german style wheat that doesn’t look the best, but has a great refreshing flavour full of wheat. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Whip-In in Austin, Texas on 05-May-2014 for US$1.79 sampled at home in Washington on 31-July-2014.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 10/20
A yeasty and clove aroma combined with nods to bananas and citrus. A voluminous frothy, mostly lasting white head, resulting from a vigorous pour, presents itself atop a hazy light yellow pour. Moderate lacing coats the glass. The taste acknowledges the holy trinity of Hefewiezens, yeast, bananas, and cloves. Also present are hints of wheat/grain and citrus. Medium body soft carbonation. The mouthfeel is creamy with just a touch of crispness in the finish. Overall, this is a decent example of a Hefewienzen that I would drink again.
