3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a barely transparent hazy golden yellow with a decent white head. Aroma is wheaty, yeasty and just a little lemony, about average for this style. Mouth filling flavor is crisp and wheaty with a nice undertone of citrus, mainly lemon, a little bit of summer sunshine. Texture is smooth and fairly fizzy.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
The aroma was light citrus with a light spice and a low wheat presence with a caramel and fruity character. The beer was lightly hazy (almost muddy) pale golden amber with an off-white tight head which laced the glass from top to bottom. The flavor was more light citrus, namely orange, with spice and an estery fruity presence. Wheat was notable coupled to a slightly sweet flavor. The finish was just dry with lasting light spice and citrus into the aftertaste. The body was medium with a moderate level of carbonation and a creamy texture on the palate. A nice beer. Pint at Delany’s in Spartanburg.

Served from bottle into a Samuel Smith Euro pint. Pours a yellow-orange with white one-finger head that quickly subsides to a minimal amount. There was no apparent lacing present. The aroma was comprised of only malt and wheat. The flavor was of citrus and wheat. It was light on the palate with medium carbonation. Overall this brew kind of lacks robust flavoring to be good. It is not bad however, and would be an awesome lawnmower beer as it is quite smooth and drinkable.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Appearance: Pours a hazy, orange-gold body with a thin, white head.
Smell: Sweet-smelling, malty nose with rather mild notes of fruit and spice.
Taste: Notably sweetish maltiness with a bready, almost cakey quality to it. Distant, faroff note of field grains. Hint of clove. A drop or two of tangerine oil. Very faint spicy hops with an equally light touch of bitterness. Drying finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium-plus carbonation.
Drinkability: While not the most authentic hefeweizen I’ve come across, it’s still a generally pleasant, refreshing beer.

12oz bottle Pours hazy orange foa y white head. Fruity aroma of fresh pie, hints of spices. somewhat sweet scented nose. sweet malt flavor, hints of unsalted sunflower seeds. An odd presence of orange zest in the finish. The flavor seems to combine a barley and wheat flavor. Finishes with a hefe character. An odd pale ale flavor with a Hefewiezen finish. Nowhere close to Rogue Soba, and very unique in its own place. Refreshing, tasty, and balanced.

This is why I don’t like hefe weizens. It’s hard to pull off a great hefe. They didn’t get it right here. Drank it from the bottle. Slight hint of mystery fruit. Overwhelming yeasty taste. One of six on my SC trip. Nov 09

Draft at Rattle with Npodendorf. Pours deep brown with a beige head. Wheaty base, with some light sweetness, very light fruity notes, and low bitterness. Comes up just a bit short, but enjoyable nonetheless.

Copper color, white head some lacing. Cereal and some hops greet my nostrils. A light to medium body and good wheat flavor and some earthiness. Overall an easy drinking wheat.
