look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A: The beer is slightly hazy yellow in color and has a moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a finger high bright white head that has good retention properties and consistently left a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface.
S: There are moderately strong aromas of bubble gum and bananas in the nose.
T: The taste is similar to the smell except that the banana flavors from the yeast are more prominent and there are hints of clove in the finish.
M: It feels light-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This is a really nice wheat beer in a can, especially if you like the traditional flavors of bananas.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured from the can into a standard pint glass.

Appearance: The beer pours a slightly cloudy golden amber color with a small layer of off white head that goes away completely.

Smell: Some banana and clove with a rather strong tart lemon presence. The yeast seems to dominate.

Taste: Light and quite yeasty. The lemon like tartness is a bit overwhelming. The banana and clove notes are there, but aren't dominant enough. The finish is slightly tart.

Mouthfeel: Medium body with very mild carbonation and a dry finish.

Overall: The tart notes are too strong but it still wasn't bad. I don't think I would want any more.

Serving type: can

Beer served in a stein, beer is yellow and hazy with a thin white head, some lacing, moderate retention, and moderate carbnoatoin.

Nice grainy banana aroma, light on the cloves.

Beer is light and wet with a nice banana flavor and wheaty body, it finishes nicely. Wet and clean. I'd have this again.

Serving type: on-tap

Nonic pint. Dark orange and murky. Dimpled inch of head. Great retention. 4.0

Aromatic clove spice with hints of mixed berries and banana. Light lemon pairs well with heavy wheat bready tanginess. Slight pear note, as well. Appreciated complexity. 4.0

Surprisingly refreshing tartness with a tart apple and quince fleshiness. Not banana-heavy. Juicy pomme, tart raspberry, and spicy clove top the charts here. Green banana flashes in the finish. Unique and fresh. 4.0

Soft and creamy. Almost buttery. Light carbonation. Very sessionable. 4.0

Excellent local hefe. Possibly my favorite Sly Fox beer. 4.0

Serving type: on-tap

Pours a hazy gold color, surprised with the relatively small head on this. Scent brings notes of Belgian yeast with banana, bubblegum and some clove, faint presence of dried grain. Taste follows scent, light all throughout and lacking character from the grain bill, a very light tasting beer showcasing mostly yeast, mild banana and bubblegum and some spice. Lighter side of medium bodied, moderate carbonation, maybe low for style. Another ho-hum beer for the masses.
