Nobody could explain this beer better than Kevin Patterson in Lexington, Ky:
"With the tendencies to always create uniqueness in the contemporary craft beer market, sometimes comfort can be found in the classic styles. Blue Stallion's Hefeweizen is one such beer- as the southern German style boasts a tremendous amount of complexity, variety and charm and does so on an effortless bready base.
Blue Stallion's rendition pour with a tall and slender column, shedding a creamy, pillowy white froth. Deeply golden in its hue, the beer's scent is redolent with sugar cookie, citrus, banana, clove, vanilla and soft minty hops. To taste, the bready-sweet flavor is creamy, savory, doughy and confection-like.
As the taste transpires, the sweetness relaxes slowly and keeps the session bready and sweet. As the fruit esters emerge, banana flavor leads the pack with a quick follow-up of lemon, apple, orange and cantaloup. Counter to the fruit are the spices of clove, white pepper, vanilla and faint cumin. Trailing hops are subtle and offers a mild minty, grassy, spicy bitterness to accessorize the yeast spices and help to balance the residual malt and fruit flavors.
Medium-bodied from start to finish, the beer's expressive carbonation keeps the wheat fluffy, creamy and lush. Its smooth texture lends a high rate of drinkability with its refreshing, thirst-quenching properties. A short aftertaste of banana and clove provide brief echoes of flavors after the sweetness has faded."
