Saranac Hefeweizen

Slightly odd looking, in as much as it appears to be semi-filtered. Not as cloudy as we might otherwise anticipate for the style, but also not showing much clarity. Not much head and not much lacing, certainly no evidence of a big pillowy head that one might hope for.

Banana and clove aroma is strong, and the inital tastes reflect that. Unfortunately it’s all a little weak and watery, and somewhat artificial. A little sharp citric acidity in the finish which finally terminates with a little hop profile, but not much.

Not bad and certainly drinkable, but this is not a very good Hefe, despite it not being a bad beer. I’d put this in as a potential crossover that won’t be too much for your average BMC guy. A gentle introduction to something a bit different.
