3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
A tinge of alcohol in the nose. Smooth start with a dirty, uncomplex front. Off tap, front is clean, nearly tasteless. Character not apparent until the relatively clean finish. Drinkable, but lacks the flavorful notes of an Edelweiss. Decent summer brew, but this is one of those beers that should really be had on tap. This rating is assuming a bottle tasting. A good 3.3 off tap.

Characteristic aroma of wheat and honey. It's deliciously aromatic for a hefeweizen with flowery hints.
The appearance is a bit disappointing. I like a good head on my hef. It had barely a head, almost like the head on a sour! The look is wheaty and nice.
The taste is less interesting than the aroma. However, it's still pretty decent. Just nothing surprising. Lovely wheaty, malty, honey like taste with a well balanced palate.
A decent hefeweizen. More head and a bit more complexity would have certainly been enjoyed.

Had with lunch 12oz bottle. Pours a hazy gold with a healthy white head. The nose was light malt, fruity, sweet. The drink was light and sweet fruity orange, with a light hop bitter. overall, very fruity sweet. not a good pairing with beef taquitos.

This beer pours with a little head and a nappy orange yellow color. Slightly cloudy. Aroma is indistinct. Taste is very bland. Crisp and smooth but boring. Aftertaste is actually skunky and bad. not recommended at all.

Pours a cloudy golden color with a thin diminishing head. Aroma is of wheat, spices and yeast. wheat. Taste is similar with a touch of banana. Finishes dry and crisp.

Touch of haze, but nothing like I expect. There’s a bit of a lemony flavor. The bitterness level is a touch higher than what I would expect.
