    [Best served in a Weizen glass]

    The pour was a murky brownish yellow with a large (2-3 finger) white frothy head that lasted a little while, reducing to a medium cap which created some excellent sheets of lacing.

    The aroma was of a light grain malt and a bold sweaty yeast with notes of citrus (lemon), banana, wheat and a bit of spice (clove and coriander).

    The taste was a tad sweet with a moderately strong citrus note early on, becoming rather wheat engulfed with a hint of banana, spice and was mildly acetic towards the end. The flavor lingered for a decent duration proceeding the swallow with a nice mild tart citrus wheat taste left to settle on the taste buds.

    Mouthfeel was a few steps above light in body and a bit watery in texture with a mildly strong carbonation.

    Overall a very impressive Organic Hefeweizen, one with a nice citrus banana taste and a slight appealing tartness at the finish. This is one of the best Organic brews I have had to date...
