An interesting smell from this Hefe, almost an aluminum-like aroma. No hints of banana or cloves at all. Not a lot of wheat undertones, either.
The looks of this is spot on. Very deep straw color that can't be seen through. Head is great. Hefeweizens usually are highly carbonated and with the % of wheat, the head should and is destructible.
I swear I can taste aluminum in this beer, and I should know; I use to brew with aluminum and this is the flavor that would sometimes sneak in. I got rid of that shit, right away! No banana or clove tastes in the least.
Mouthfeel is nice. Not as well-rounded as a hefe should be, though. Still, it's a tad velvety. A little lighter body than should be./span>
Overall Impression: (6/10)
After trying the Schell's Hefeweizen and being to Germany on a number of times, this beer is really bland and has no typical Hefeweizen anything. I wouldn't search this one out!
