12oz bottle. Deep golden color, white head. Aroma of puffed wheat cereal. Very nice, dry aroma. Flavor has a larger hop bitterness than expected. Dry but not too brut. Characteristically thirst quenching. Nat a bad German Hefeweizen. Lots of tiny fizziness.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Appearance: Pours a hazy, amber-orange body with a short-lived, fizzy, whitish head.
Smell: All of the usual hefe suspects present: tangy wheat, banana, and citrus, though what really stands out is the sharp clove note.
Taste: The tangy, lightly sweet taste of malted wheat. Light hints of banana and citrus followed by a good pop of clove. Spicy hops with a light bitterness. Some sourish, chalky yeast in the later half of the drink. Finishes dry and quite crisp with lingering clove taste.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Moderate carbonation.
Drinkability: A pleasant, adequate little hefe from Tin Mill.

Another solid beer from this great little brewpub. Pours hazy yellow with a small white head. The aroma has lots of sweet banana and very rich wheat malt that reminds me in a big way of Dancing Man from New Glarus. Medium body that’s more grainy than expected with a good amount of carbonation. Surprisingly enough the flavor starts out dry with grainy wheat and very underscored dry esters ~ the taste is very nice, but nothing like Dancing Man. The finish has some grassy esters and wheat. A very good example of the style.

Lovely spice nose, with hints of clove and nutmeg. Hazy, cereal maltiness, that has some bold flavor, remains very clean with a menthol and eucalyptus like quality in the finish.

UPDATED: JAN 30, 2010 A very accessible interpretation. Very drinkable. Not a lot of the typical hefe character, but nice none the less.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Trade from theisti - Thanks! Cloudy brownish orange, very thin head. Very toasty, almost rye-ish aroma. Very little wheat character in the aroma, nor is there much in the flavor. Oddly sweet, crackerish flavor, and a bready, slightly sweet finish. Actually pretty tasty, if lacking much wheat flavor.
