Draft... Pours cloudy and straw-colored with a mid-sized, foamy, white head. Decent retention. The nose furnishes all the typical hefeweizen esters and phenols, but there’s some lime peel here as well. Light to medium-bodied with stinging carbonation. The flavor and finish are sweet and grainy, but also a hint acidic. Nothing really wrong here, but I don’t like sweet, phenolic wheat beers. Brew up a passable Berliner Weisse? Then we can talk! Seriously though, Matt and Fran do a good job with their wheat beers if that’s what tickles your taint.
