3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
The flavor reminded more of a doppelbock, the appearance is great, nice head and doppelbocky look, the palate was the main disappointing part, rather watery. Sessiony kind of beer but one could find session beers with more oomph overall.

From bottle, the pour is cloudy with a medium to dark dirty brown. The head is white with slight brown overtones. The head also remains present on the beer after a minute and more. The aroma is malts, hops, and wheat. The taste is rich initially, there’s a soy sauce and malt flavor and a sweetness in the back end of the beer. The finish more sweet with a good combination backbone. The mouthfeel is medium.

355ml bottle. Pours a hazy brown with a medium, frothy, long lasting, beige head that laces nicely. Sweet aroma of wheat malt, caramel, banana, yeast and light clove. Sweet flavour of wheat malt, caramel, light fruit, yeast and clove with a smooth, dry finish. Medium body with an oily texture and soft carbonation. Ok.

Delicious brew. I’m not a huge Hef lover, but this dark version is worth the calories!

12 oz pour from refrigerated bottled into a shaker pint. Dark brown and mostly opaque with a muted white head. Medium body leaning on the lighter side. Interesting balance of caramel and banana notes. Roasty. Closer to a dry porter than a hefe, I’d say, but I can see the hefe qualities. A little bit of clove hidden in there under all the caramel and dark malts.
