2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
It pours a clear light gold with a small and quickly shrinking head of foam. Lacing is spotty.
Lots of lemon citrus in the nose, that and some bread.
Very lemon citrus forward in the taste with a mild back up quality of bread. 2 dimensional and not the 2 that I expected for the style at all.
Light bodied, medium carbonation.
I’m glad I picked a bottle for a build your own 6 pack and not a dedicated one. This is not something I would want to revisit.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from bottle into a pint glass
Appearance – The beer pours a very lightly hazed orange amber color with a one finger head of fizzy white foam. The head fades rather rapidly leaving only a trace of foamy lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell- The aroma is big of a bready and wheaty smell with lots of yeast. The yeast brings with it some banana and bubblegum as well as a hint of a more citrus smell. A little bit of a grass and hay are there as well, creating a very nice balanced weizen aroma overall.
Taste – The taste starts with a sweeter flavor of bubblegum, banana, and candied sugar mixed with other flavors of citrus and a rather strong wheat bread taste. Most of these flavors create a base flavor for the brew with only the candied sugars fading as the taste advances. With the loss of the candied flavors comes an increase in a yeasty flavor, which actually grows rather strong, and slightly spiced flavor of coriander and clove. With a hint of a hay and grass coming to the tongue at the end, one is left with a rather sweeter and yeasty-wheaty flavor to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the slightly thinner to average side in terms of its thickness and creaminess with a carbonation level that is rather average. For the mix of sweet, yeast, and wheat the averageness of both the carbonation and body are rather appropriate and make for a refreshing an easy drinking brew that still has enough body to support the rich flavor profile.
Overall – A rather enjoyable, slightly yeastier, and sweeter, Weizen overall. One to at least give a go to if you have the chance.

On tap. Hazy dark golden with a white head. Scent and taste is mild, FWIW these are too cold imho. Some fruit and wheat.

2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12oz bottle. Thin head, faint grain aroma, solid presentation/color. Smooth and easy but not much here for me - decent but nothing to bring me back.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle. This "looks right" for a hefeweizen ... Hazy yellow with a firm white head. But there’s little distinctive flavor. Just a vague grist with a lemon twist. Not bad, not great for style. (#4646, 7/3/2012)

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Received in a pint glass at a little eatery near Yellowstone.
4.0 A: Moderately hazed green tinted yellow color. Came when I was in the bathroom, so I can’t comment much on the head, but it did leave lots of lacing.
2.5 S: A little bit of bubblegum and a touch of clove, but not very hefe-y. Neutral wheat without a lot of complexity and not very clean either.
3.0 T: Pretty much like the nose. Touch of bubblegum and clove, but without a real hefe identity. Wheat flavor is a lot stronger than in the nose though.
3.0 M: Lighter medium to medium body. Good hefe carbonation, but it is a bit bity. Very light creaminess.
2.5 D: Mediocre hefe that is missing most of what I like about the style.
Serving type: on-tap
