Transfer from BA review on 5-4-14- Poured from can into a pint glass Appearance The beer pours a hazy orange amber color with a billowy head of pure white foam. The head has a moderate level of retention, with it fading to leave a good level of foamy lace on the sides of the glass. Smell The aroma of the beer is huge of a yeasty aroma mixed with some wheaty smells and a little bit of a orange smell. Along with this is just a hint of some pepper spice. Taste The taste begins with some light orange fruit flavors and a big yeasty taste. The taste begins very smooth and bready as well with it becoming much more wheaty and a bit more grainy in nature as the taste moves onto the end. Some lighter spice flavors of coriander and lemongrass comes to the tongue at the very end as well. The spice remains relatively light overall just adding a hint of spice flavor to the brew. With the orange gaining more strength in the end a very pleasant lightly spiced and slightly sweeter Hefe flavor is left to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel The body of the beer is on the average side in terms of thickness and creaminess with a carbonation level that is on the higher side. Both are great for the mix of orange, wheat and yeasty tastes of the Hefe all while making for a very easy drinking brew. Overall A quite tasty Hefe. This is a great go to brew that is perfect for summer weather. Very enjoyable and easy drinking.

On tap 9 oz. pour at the Snow Lodge at Old Faithful, Yellowstone Park, WY. Clear (!? a clear hefeweizen?), bright yellow with a small off-white head and fair lacing. Aroma of lemon, biscuit, orange and perfume. Taste of orange, grain, light caramel,mild spice and a hint of banana. Medium/light body and medium carbonation. Medium/light body and medium carbonation. An unexciting beer that bears little resemblance to a hefeweizen. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cloudy yellow pour, white head. Typcial wheat aroma up front, spice, yeast, orange but also a perfume note. And the perfume carries into the flavor with some yeast, spice and pale malts.
