4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured into a tulip glass. Light yellow color in the pour. Once settled in the glass it is opaque golden colored with a finger of white head that quickly broke down to a thin covering.
Smells great. Lots of banana, some nectarine and orange.
Nice taste. Starts like a normal Hefe with some banana. Then an undercurrent of bitter takes over with a sparkling water ending.
Crisp with moderate carbonation.
Hefe is not my favorite style. I liked this one because it was not overly fruity. It had just a touch of banana at the beginning and then mixed it up with a more interesting flavor sequence than a normal hefe.

It has sweet and fresh aroma of green grapes and light malt . The appearance is bright and cloudy with minimal head. The taste is pleasant and lightly balanced with a fine fizzy carbonation.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Notes from Family Hefe Tasting. Pours a clear pale yellow with a white head. Aroma has spices and pickles. Taste was led by pickles or vinegar or some other tangy spice. Some vegetalness as well. 11.2 This was the highest finishing American Hefe in the tasting; but only finished midpack overall.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Appearance is cloudy deep yellow/light golden with a frothy thick white foam cap. Aroma is typical spicy clove, banana, and bubblegum. Taste is bready malt with spicy clove that stands out, but also has a slight metallic taste. Banana character is there, but stands down to the clove. Mouthfeel is medium for the style with moderate carbonation. Not as creamy as most examples. Finishes extremely dry on the tongue with lingering clove spice. Overall good, but lacks the creamy body of it’s German counterparts and seems to have a slight metallic taste

Gostosa, um pouco de gosto residual, mas ainda sim bem refrescante. Leve e clara.

Draft. Looks to style. Feels great. Nice smooth creamy feel. Everything one would expect of a great hefe. One of the better/best American made hefeweizens for sure. I would have no problem downing a boot.

Leuchtend goldgelb im Glas, fester weißer Schaum. Nicht ganz so fruchtig in der Nase wie die deutschen Versionen, irgendwie aber auch schon. Aber sehr gut trinkbar, muss den Vergleich mit den bayrischen Bieren nicht scheuen
