2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
This Hefeweizen is most certainly not Reihenheitsgebot, as it contains orange and lemon peel and is also bottle conditioned with honey. On the bright side, it is non-pasteurized. The fruit spices are very mild, however, and it is a little more German in direction--with fancy terms like "Prost!" on the label--than the more common Belgian-style wit beers produced by our macro-brewing friends, such as Blue Moon by Coors/Molson and Shock Top by AB-InBev.
While they recommend serving with a lemon wedge--sacrilege to any true Bavarian weissbier--I avoided such nonsense. The brew pours very light and with a pale straw color. The head was unfortunately almost non-existent. The body is also thin and the aroma has just the faintest hint of fruit. Very mildly hopped, it drinks very easy and is, as they suggest, a nice summer refresher.
This is better than most American wheat beers as it has a little of the classic weissín character, however it certainly isnít anything to write home to mom about. Itís a nice, non-offensive and refreshing pour

bottle. cloudy golden with small head. itís like they took 9 parts of a very bland wheat beer, and then mixed in 1 part hefeweizen in. why canít more american breweries make a proper hefe? all the parts are there, but theyíre just so muted.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a murky straw color with a white 2 finger head. Aroma is bready with malts, wheat, citrus, lemon grass. There is a very faint bubblegum or banana smell as well. Taste has wheat, German yeasts, a bit of clove and orange peel, faint citrus, tangy lemon grass. Mouth feel is medium bodied, medium to high carbonation.Drinkable Hefeweizen, but doesnít taste like the greatest Hefeweizen. Almost more like an average wheat ale.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
A- Wheat, corn, butter, lemon.
A- Orange color, cloudy liquid, white head.
T- Slightly sweet, corn, wheat, water, yeasty, subtle banana.
P- Light body, average texture, average carbonation, wheat finish.
O- Not too flavorful. Far from being horrible, but just lacks a lot of the great qualities I love in a Hefe. Not overly satisfying.
