Fordham New World Wheat

12 oz bottle as a single form Hop City, Atlanta, GA, USA.

Added as a new entry to the BA db but surprised that it is not in already. I know there can be confusion with locations, brewpubs etc., but this is labeled as being brewed by Fordham in Dover, DE so I have added it there.

Pour is a cloudy yellow as one would expect, but the necessary, high, rocky, well retained head that should produce great lace is missing – a shame.

Nose revelas the standard clove, spice and a touch of artificial, mashed banana.

The tastes skirt around the place they need to be without ever really diving fully in to the mix. A little insipid which is not helped by the thin mouthfeel and the somewhat dulled tones.

Seems like a slightly below average Hefe to me, and perhaps a beer that was brewed to appeal to the masses rather than hit the style on the head. I dunno, rather disappointing to say the least.
