2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
(bottle from Sparky, thanks!) Pours a hazy pale yellow color with a significant amount of fizzy carb jetting up the glass and a medium white fluffy head. Aroma contains a ton of stale bread, light skunk, perhaps coriander, and maybe a little bit of funk. Smells more like an attempt at a belgian ale than a hefeweizen. Flavor tastes a little more reminiscent of the style, with an abundant amount of wheat bread, faint banana chip, lingering lemon, with a snappy, dry finish that could be mistaken for being bitter. Mouthfeel is creamy and carb is spot on. Overall this isn’t an exemplar of the style, but it’s pretty refreshing and would make for a nice summer session beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft. Hazy yellow with white head. Citrus and grass aroma quite a sweet lemony taste to start with some spices at the end. Much more fruity than most authentic German hefeweizen but a refreshing summer drink when in California

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft. Aroma he slightest bit of malt with the hefe yeast taking it over. The appearance a hazy yellow with a thin white head. The taste starts slightly citrus hefe then slides into a spicier almost pepper hefe flavor. The palate leaves a yeasty hefe flavor on palate. Overall, a decent hefe. Would try again.

A good hefe but not extraordinary. Good balanced flavor with a pleasant aftertaste. Similar to widmer's hefe.
