3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft at RVC. Pours a fairly hazy gold, decent head. Wheat and spice aroma. Like Tia, I caught coriander. In all honesty, I would have pegged this as a saison. There were definite phenol and ester notes present, and they were pleasant. But they came across to me as more Belgian as opposed to the clove/banana German here combo. Maybe my palate is finally fatally shot. In any case, since this is entirely hedonistic, I still liked it quite a bit. :)

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap @ Tap House Grill at Ghent - Norfolk: While I’m not normally a fan of hefe’s - this one was well made in the German style and serves as an extremely refreshing summer beer. Smooth body with great flavors of mild yeast and citrus. The citrus continues into the aftertaste.
