Brewsday Tuesday: The Love

August 14, 2012

The second of six beers I picked up from Market Square Liquors was the Love by Starr Hill Brewery.  I nabbed it for $2.00 from the bargain table and figured I have nothing to lose.  Salut!

Name: The Love

Brewed by: Starr Hill Brewery

Location: Crozet, VA

Style/ABV: Hefeweizen / 4.6%

Appearance: Pours a hazy deep orange gold with an impressive fluffy three finger head.  Slowly fades to a thin layer. Nice lacing is present in the glass.

Smell: Wheat, grass, spices and some orange citrus notes at the end.

Taste: The taste follows the smell.  A spicy opening with hints of cloves that moves into yeasty flavors that closes with some nice citrus flavors. The spicy clove notes make a reappearance at the end.  No bitterness is noted in this beer.

Mouthfeel: Light with low carbonation.

Overall: This is a good Hefeweizen and well worth a try.

Final Grade: B+

    Nice. I am visiting nearby, and former home of Starr Hill, Charlottesville, VA, right now.
