5/5  rDev +30.2%

It's actually hard to review this beer because, I don't want to stop between sips and think about what I'm enjoying...I just want to enjoy it. Appears slightly clouded with yeast suspension not quite a kristalweizen, more so hefeweizen in both taste and yeast character. I understand that they used a centrifuge process to get the heavy sediment out but retain esters and flavors that wouldn't otherwise be in there. Aroma has a strong lemon with mild banana fruitiness going on, absolutely incredible stuff. Flavor crushes with a sharp wheat bright tartness, that really makes it, almost a sourmash technique. Full of flavor, yeast esters lemon, banana, mild clove, all from yeast from Weihenstephaner. Awesome video if you scan the QR from the box. Mouthfeel is light to medium bodied solid dry finish, keeps a wheat beer straight up amazing, sometimes these beers get cloying that's not the case here. Overall incredible summer long drinking must begin here, probably the best wheat beer around this summer at only 11 IBUs it has some hopheads left with a tear in their beer. I'm quite thrilled that they put the work into this beer, plus they have a German brewmaster who truly understands the style.

A - translucent golden yellow with a big fluffy white head. could be more clear... but that's semantics- you can see through it.

S - Clove, bubblegum (bazooka if you ask me ^^) sweet ripe banana scents.

T - Crisp, full-flavored, a hint of tartness (very light), clove, would have loved some more bubblegum flavors, but it is there along with the sweet banana.

M - med-light bodied, great carbonation... very smooth and easy to drink (all 4 in one sitting)

O - As i sit on a porch swing in rural PA across the street from a church that plays the national anthem everyday & contemplate our recent landing on Mars, I cant help but look down at this beautiful craft beer and think, "I am certainly satisfied"
