KajII (799) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - JAN 24, 2010
UPDATED: SEP 15, 2011 Bottle. It poured a hazy medium yellow with an amber hue and had a small (less than 1 finger) white frothy head that was mostly diminishing and had fair lacing. The aroma was of light grain malts, a grassy hop and a nice strong earthy yeast with a hint of citrus and cloves. It tasted bitter-sweet in the beginning with a nice citrus note. It then proceeded to have a light hoppy finish with a dose of spice at the end. The flavor stayed with you for an average amount of time leaving almost no taste of the brew a few minutes after the swallow. Mouthfeel was creamy yet watery in texture and medium in body with a lively carbonation. Overall a decent wheat beer and would be great as a session beer. It’s a light refreshing brew and nice served with a slice of lemon. But nothing really stands out to make this beer anything overly special.

Not much aroma, but taste not bad. More spice less bananas than many other hefeweizens

12 oz. bottle while in Oregon in January. Appearance: finger white head, straw yellow, cloudy, light lacing. Aroma: hay, grass, wheat. Palate: average carbonation, thin texture. Taste: sweet wheat with light caramel into lemon notes. Overall, very drinkable, but not great outside of that.

jrodooo5 (1214) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - MAY 18, 2015
Pours a murky gold w/ a thin white head & minimal lacing. The aroma is primarily Orange. The taste is fruity up front - mainly orange followed by a bit of strange bitterness. It’s a little harsh on the palate & overall not very good!

Savage_Night (84) - California, USA - APR 13, 2015
Wheat, yeast, banana aroma. Flavors of wheat, banana, slight bread, light tartness on and slight dry feel. It’s not but but also not great. You could use this as your starting point and just move forward to better hefeweizens. The next one being better than the last.

ttoadee (921) - Austin, Texas, USA - FEB 6, 2015
Cloudy yellow pour, decent head. Nose is yeast and wheat. Slightly sweet.. Middle is bready, hint of citrus. Finish is dry and still a little bready. I will admit that I like the German hefe versions better.
