This a great starter craft beer. Its a little off at the end and there isn’t enough hops but if you’re not a hop head you love this brew.

Aroma is some malts. Taste is hints of wheat, but far from one of the better wheat beers. Overall not a great hefeweizen.

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Just really bad. Very watery, bitter, flavorless. Not a wheaty, yeasty, clove-y brew like a Hefe should be. Don’t bother with this one!

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz can, poured into a bell glass at approximately 40 degrees F.
A: Poured very, very pale, like water with a hint of an echo of the shadow of a yellowish tinge. In the glass, it takes on a little more color, turning a polished gold hue. It looks more like a dark cider than a hefeweizen, forming a minimal head that dies away quickly and appearing more hazy than cloudy. It does leave some scattered patches of persistent lacing on the glass.
S: The aroma is primarily wheat and grain fields, with a few hints of clove and something slightly bubble-gum-esque. Not much in the way of fruit odors.
T: With all respects to Douglas Adams, the taste is not almost, but not quite, exactly unlike a hefeweizen. This drinks more like a yellow lager, with the same sort of hop profile - wheaten and grassy, with a slight citrus tang. None of the clove or bubblegum from the nose appears, and none of the fruity esters one would expect from a hefeweizen seem to be present.
M: Watery, but with rather active carbonation.
O: There are many better examples of the hefeweizen style out there. This seems almost mislabeled, more like a pale wheat ale.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Appearance: lightly hazy light yellow, short creamy white head quickly dissipates to nothing. Aroma: extremely light aroma, almost nonexistent, with a bit of pepper and banana. Taste: light banana, hint of citrus and mineral water, a bit of pepper, and some skunky notes. Finish: lingering diacetyl and some creamed corn. Notes: The rare miss from St Louis Brewing. Not good at all. Tasted skunked, but only bottled six months ago.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft - average size foamy head, hazy light gold color, mild banana and spice aroma and flavor, sweet wheat backbone, pretty easy to drink and refreshing, not the strong true German hefe kick of flavors, but not bad overall

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Just a pretty average hefeweizen. Really weak aroma and lacking in taste. I am thrilled it comes in cans for concerts in the park.
