Beautiful color and haze, what one would expect to see with a wheat. It produced a great head with bright white bubbles. After about 10 minutes the head dropped down to a thin layer and has stayed throughout the glass. Did not produce any lacing though.
A slight bready smell and just a very little hint of the orange peel. No off smells that I can make out.
One word can describe this, "clean".... It's crisp, dry, and a little bit of citrus.
This has turned out to be a nice light easy drinking beer. One that would be perfect for the hot days.
But as for the yeast being a Heffe, not a chance. An American wheat is what I would call it.
If I had some lemonade in the house I would drop a little in the glass. I think it would make a great shandy.
Kind of a coppery gold, a little darker then the Danstar with a little more haze. Produced a great head that dropped to a thin layer after about 5 minutes and is lacing the glass.
Not much there. I can smell the wheat malt and something that makes me think of pepper.
A touch sour and watery. There is a hint of yeast bite but other then that it's bland.
This yeast sucks. Does not produce anything that I would want to do again. No heffe characteristics and what it does produce is not all that good.
Maybe I'll open her up and drop in some more orange and maybe some lemon...
I think the Danstar is a far better yeast then the Fermentis but if you want a heffe, use something else...
