How we review

What the brewers say

“Adhering to Reinheitsgebot, we brew Heliocentric with malted grain, pure Arvada water, European hops, and healthy German Weizen yeast. Embrace the light and enjoy Heliocentric all year long.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Classic hefe aroma of banana, strong clove, earthiness, herb, and bread. Leans toward spicy phenols, smoke, and black pepper, with bubblegum and overripe pineapple to back them up. Over time, the smoke becomes stronger, with a hint of vinyl emerging.”

Flavor: “Assertive banana and spice, blended with smoke and clove—more so in the flavor than on the nose. Some honey and wheat that’s lightly tart and cracker-like. Citrus and orange notes, as well as grassy and herbal hops, and low-to-moderate bitterness and acidity. The body is medium, and the finish is bitter and dry.”

Overall: “It’s balanced between the fruity esters and spicy phenols and crusty wheat flavors, with a soft body and a touch of bitterness in the finish to clean it up.”
