Poured into a Celebrator pokal. Pours a light golden amber with a half finger white head that dissipates to a thin film and ring around the glass with light lacing. Aroma of biscuit malt with hints of wheat, faint grassy hops. Flavor follows aroma, dominated by biscuit malt and mild hops. A faint passing hint of wheat and no wheat style yeast. Medium bodied with active carbonation. Possibly the oddest hefeweizen I've had; in a blind taste, I would have called this a pale ale with certainty. As a pale ale, it's quite nice, but I detect only faint suggestions of hefeweizen characters. I have to wonder if this is a labelling mistake and this is actually Baranof's pale ale!? I have checked other reviews on the internet and most found bready malt, clove and banana; I'm going to have to assume that I got a mislabelled bottle. I'm not sure how to score this, so I'm going to go half way between enjoyment (nice!) and hefeweizen character (fail). I will review this again after a fresh shipment from Alaska.

22 oz bottle:
Into a weizen:
A: hazy orange body, one finger white foamy head that concaves into the body and leaves some clingy foamy lacing in its wake and leaves some rings
S: subdued "banana" yeastiness yet wheaty, light orange and a bit of clove
T: bready and a bit of orange, wheaty aftertaste, dry finish
M: medium, yet pretty sessionable, carbonation seems good for the style and for me
O: good hefeweizen, nothing outstanding for the style, but could still have it again
