I’m not a big fan of Helfaweisen’s, however for a Helf, this was one of my favorites.

Pours with a flat head. Spicy, dishwater soapy funk in taste. Beer has almost no smell. Very flat tasting and no body at all. Not a good hefeweizen. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

"agreed more an american wheat than a hefe. no bubbllegum, clove, etc...citrusy, coriander and minimal ginger. not bad, not anything to go out of your way for either."

Transfer from BA review on 7-11-13- Served on tap in a weizen glass Appearance – Served a hazy-golden orange colored brew with a billowy one finger white head. The head had some good staying power with it lasting some time before fading to leave streaky lace on the sides of the glass. Smell – The aroma was rather light overall consisting of a bit of wheat, lemon, orange and banana. While still rather light, the heaviest of the aromas were that of yeast and some spice of coriander and ginger. Taste – The taste was mild upfront consisting of a light wheat and bready flavor with a moderately strong citrus flavor. The citrus was predominantly of an orange nature with hints of lemon mixed within. A yeasty flavor develops quickly in the taste, leaving a rather pasty yeast cake taste on the tongue. The wheat and bread flavors intensify some more toward the end balancing out the yeast and when combined with a bit of ginger spice one is left with a more bready and lightly spiced flavor on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the brew is rather light with a carbonation level that is rather average. The combination of the two make for a smooth feel, which is rather appropriate for the yeasty and bready flavors of the brew. Overall – An alright brew, but noting too exciting. Worth a try but not one I will likely come back to again.

On tap at the airport. Pours a clear copper color with a small white head. A light banana and orange nose. The flavor is light pepper, banana, spices, malty base. Ok. Lemon finish.

Rated from notes taken on 27 Aug 2011 -- This beer intrigued me by its assertive clove and spiciness without banana phenols. Overall a pretty decent brew.

Pint on tap. Nose is spicy toast and light citrus. Tastes of earthy spiced toast and lemon. Clear golden with a light-medium body and medium-high carbonation. There oughta be a law against using the term "Hefeweizen" in the name of such blasphemic crap.

From 22 oz bottle. Clear slghtly hazy golden; large frothy head and good lacing. Aroma: a mix of appealing light malts and less appealing yeast and spices. Flavor: mildly sweet; soft fruits; light bread; mild coriander. Feel: medium-light body with lively, medium carbonation. O: a tame spiced hefe.

Had at Foamfest in Fayetteville. Pours a hazy golden yellow with a thin white head. Citrus and spice. Some floral. Wheaty and yeasty. Nice beer.
