Sam Adams Hefeweizen is good

More redemption for Mr. Koch.  Sam Adams Hefeweizen is a honey-colored and very vigorously carbonated brew that produces a long-lasting 1/2″ thick head.  It’s a bit cloudy, and the bouquet is not overly banana/clovey like its German counterparts.  I’m fine with that.  It’s malty and filling in the nose, and almost bread-like.  It has a smooth texture on the tongue and is truly delicious.  It finishes a bit tangy and fizzy and a tad dry.  It’s a very good American version of the Bavarian classic.  Nice job.
