3.46/5 rDev -8.9%
Pours a hazy dark straw color with a finger of head that enjoyed some healthy retention. The nose has notes of both lemon and funky yeast. The flavor is pretty standard for a hefe – basically there is nothing bad here but nothing particularly good either.

On draft at Reagan National Airport. Who doesn't want a beer while waiting for a flight?
The beer is hazy yellow, though not quite as hazy as I was expecting for a weissbier. Aromas of wheat, bread, banana, light spice. Sweet snd grainy with banana and clove. Perhaps a bit too sweet. Refreshing and easy drinking. One pint was plenty, whereas the great German hefeweizens keep you coming back for more.

Poured into a large hefe style glass: color is a bit darker than some hefes, gold or maybe copper, head presented very large then dissipated to a ring.
Smell is wheat, banana, clove, bread, some citrus/lemon, drier yeast notes.
Taste follows the aroma, wheat front, then nice banana, clove, bread and citrus flavors. Bread and wheat flavors form a solid backbone and the banana and clove provide quality hefe like notes.
Mouthfeel is crisp, dry, carbonation is not overpowering but the yeast leaves a nice dry presence.
Overall, this is one of the better american hefes, quality wheat and malt flavors with nice dry yeast and banana/clove flavors.

12 oz can from my third beer-of-the-every-other-month club. Poured into an Idle Hands tulip glass.
A -- Deep golden color. White head, not as much as I would think on a weiss. poor retention and lacing.
N -- Bananas and cloves, generalized fruitiness and malts.
T -- Very good taste. Really liked this on the tongue. Sweet aftertaste.
M -- no complaints
O -- I greatly enjoyed this. Really good warm weather offering. I don't think I can buy any of Sly Fox's stuff around here though... oh well.

Pours a slightly hazy sunny orange-yellow color, with a big, rocky, foamy head. The aroma is a lovely combination of slightly-caramelized bananas, yeast, and a hint of peppery hops. The flavor similarly has more of the semi-sweet, yeasty, banana-like wheat malts, along with a little bit of earthy hops that doesn't quite meld with the fruity malt base. The very-fine, soft carbonation allows the medium body to get a little (tiny) bit syrupy, while somehow also being a bit prickly on the tongue at the same time. Overall, an above-average hefeweizen for my taste.
