Today's trip to Wegman's delivered six new breweries. Among them Lake Placid Brewing Company's hefeweizen.
It poured hazy but not cloudy, not much head. It smelled generally of beer...nothing in the way of banana or clove. The flavor is kind of meh as well. If I drink a big mouthful and savor it and think really hard, I can find a hint of the classic hefeweizen flavors. I should not have to work so hard.
Would I be pissed if I ordered this at a bar? Not if it were reasonably priced. Would I order/buy it again? No.
There are many, many better hefeweizens out there. You could read about some of the ones we've had here.
