$2.99 Hiram Bottle Shop, Hiram, GA, USA. 500 mL bottle.
I was in the mood for a Hefe – not a very common occurence – but I was. January in Atlanta and the sun is out and the temperature is in the mid-60’s so I thought it was a good time to crack one. Unfortunately this came up short in almost every department.
Pour came with a decent head, but lacked the huge pillowing effect that I was looking for. Color was a little too butterscotch influenced (lacked the yellow color, had more orange). Nose was especially lacking. No cloves, no bananas and just a little wheat. Mouthfeel was way too thin as well.
Some Hefe character in the taste, but it’s all muted and thin. I don’t know if this is a problem associated with the organic moniker, but it doesn’t really cut it for a German Hefe. Disappointing effort.
