It pours light golden color with a pillow white head. There is a heavy aroma of yeast, hay, and spices. It has an excellent compliment of spices combined with the yeast and other malt flavors.

drdisque (510) - Illinois, USA - JUL 19, 2014
From a large bottle poured in a glass. Looks like a typical hefeweizen. Flavor is fruitier than normal but not bitter. Good richness of flavor but still fairly light in body. Outstanding for an American beer of this style.

superspak (2452) - Michigan, USA - JUL 16, 2014
22 ounce bottle into weizen glass, best before 10/2/2014. Pours moderately hazy/cloudy bright gold color with a 2 finger dense and rocky white head with fantastic retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big lemon zest, banana, orange peel, pear, apple, pepper, clove, wheat, bread, light honey, light bubblegum, straw, grass, and yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance and complexity of fruity/spicy yeast, pale malt, and hop notes; with good strength. Taste of lemon zest, banana, orange peel, pear, apple, pepper, clove, wheat, bread, light honey, light bubblegum, straw, grass, and yeast earthiness. Light earthy yeast spice on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon zest, banana, orange peel, pear, apple, clove, light pepper, wheat, bread, light honey, light bubblegum, straw, grass, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice complexity, balance, and robustness of fruity/spicy yeast, pale malt, and hops flavors; with a great malt/yeast balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium-high carbonation and medium bodied; with a very smooth, crisp and fairly creamy/bready mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is an excellent hefeweizen! All around great complexity, balance, and robustness of fruity/spicy yeast, pale, malt, and hop flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

bluejacket74 (1275) - Reynoldsburg, Ohio, USA - JUL 12, 2014
22 ounce bottle. Served in a weizen glass, the beer pours a hazy gold color with about a 3-4 inch frothy white head. Head retention is excellent, and there’s a decent amount of lacing. Aroma is nice and yeasty, the brew smells like clove, lemon peel, bananas, wheat/bready malt and some grassy hops. Taste is similar to the aroma, but there’s also a bit of pear and orange peel noticeable, along with a slight bitter finish. Mouthfeel/body is light/medium, it’s smooth, easy to drink and has a good amount of carbonation. I think it’s a good brew, definitely worth picking up at $4.99 a bomber.
