I tried this seasonal beer from the Sebago Brewing Company of Portland Maine a couple of weeks ago when I was at the Maine short during a stinking hot heatwave. It was good. I brought one home only to find another stinking hot heatwave moving through these parts with around 90F in the backyard last evening and, by jimbo, it was good again.
This hef pours an authentic cloudy straw with grey notes under a quickly dissipating foam and rim. The brewer is brave enough to mirror the gravy-esque colour of the ur-Hefeweizen, Schneider Weisse, though it fails to provide the overflowing carbonation of the standard. In the mouth the yeast is milky with clove and allspice as well as a citric or passionfruit note. There is also banana and raw wheat porridginess...is that how you spell porridginess? It is more-ish from the soft water, true to style and approachable. Very nice. All two BAers who reviewed it love it. More should try.
