COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A refreshingly tart and crisp hefeweizen brewed with local MA wildflower honey, orange peel and coriander, and fermented with the juice from over 1,000 blood oranges. It’s a cloudy, yet effervescent beer, with lingering banana and citrus notes balanced against a healthy wheat backbone and hoppy finish from Mt. Hood and Crystal hops.

Pours out an appealing hazy orange with a slight pink tinge. Less of a head that you usually get with a wheat beer. The aroma is fairly bland with just little hints of spice. The flavor is much more interesting, yeasty banana, wheat tang, and some strong orange/fruit flavors. Smooth and with an Orangina-like aftertaste. Somewhat stronger of an alcohol profile than I’d desire in a hefeweizen. Overall a decent beer, I’d consider this a tastier alternative to a radler on a hot day.

Reviewed from notes. Consumed 05/06/13. The appearance is a hazy golden orange body with a one finger white foamy head that quickly dies. Carbonation is still seen rising. The smell has the esters/"banana" yeastiness up front, light coriander all balanced pretty well, light citrus as it continues to warm. The taste is sweet yet light spiciness through all previously mentioned flavors. Light wheat bite at the end leading into the aftertaste, dry finish. The palate is light, sessionable, and has a moderate carbonation seems to be right now for the style. Overall, well at the moment, I’m not a true fan of weizens, but I think I found another winner for the style at least for me as I would have this again.

beechner224 (404) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - JAN 10, 2014
Bottle. Pours orange with white head. Aroma is yeasty, citrusy. Taste is mildly tart, refreshing. Taste is not much like a hefe, only resemblance is the slight yeast in the aroma. Very drinkable thought.

hayduke (3159) - Eureka, California, USA - DEC 8, 2013
From a trade. Orange with large white head. Light lacing. Nose of citrus, most oranges. Light to medium body. Earth and sourness appear in flavor. Very un-hefe. Despite this it is drinkable. Just odd.

ben4321 (3559) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - NOV 8, 2013
Location: 22 oz bottle from Buy Rite, 11/8/13

Aroma: The nose is rather sweet, lot of honey, some orange, spice, and wheat
Appearance: It pours a cloudy orange color with a thick froth of white head
Flavor: The taste is sweet as well, with lots of honey and coriander flavors on a wheat base
Palate: The body is medium, it gets a little sticky, and it finishes tingly on the tongue
Overall Impression: I found this one to be a little too sweet for my palate, though it certainly isn’t a bad beer. Still though, I can’t really imagine rushing out for one of these again.

lesifflebiere (1025) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 21, 2013
Bonne couche de mousse blanche sur un liquide orangé légèrement trouble aux accents d’orange, de mandarine, de pêches et de blé. Au goût, les oranges sanguines dominent en introduction, suivi par des notes toujours fruitées (agrumes douces) mais aussi céréalées et presque tranchantes, probablement dues dans ce dernier cas aux levures. Petit côté poudreux. Elle est très sucrée, trop en fait pour être réellement désaltérante, et sa finale sèche est un peu émoussée par la pointe crayeuse en conclusion de gorgée. Savoureuse, mais pas vraiment sur les bonnes notes. Elle demeure plutôt agréable, mais loin d’être inoubliable.

Tap. Backlog of ratings. The beer is yellow in color, clear, no head. The smell is skunky, spicy, and fruits. The taste is fruits, spice, and just eh.

Pours a dark orange with minimal head. Smells of orange and spices and tastes of honey oranges and coriander. Very well done Hef. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
