2.88/5  rDev -18.4%
look: 2.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

Pours a fairly pale golden color with a minimal head that recedes quickly to a tiny ring of foam. It's nothing special to look at that's for sure.

The smell has lots of mixed fruit scents, the strongest being banana, mixed with some cloves. It's neither appealing nor unappealing and the taste is fairly similar except that cloves and some spice come through quite a bit more.

Mouthfeel is fine but I find drinkability to be a bit lacking. I have some trouble getting through these.. more so than other Hefeweizen's I've had in the past.

3.35/5  rDev -5.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Bottle: Poured a light yellow weizen with some white haze and a nice pure white foamy head with good retention and good lacing. Aroma of wheat is dominating and more present hen I first suspected. Taste is also dominated by lots of wheat but is unfortunately lacking in cloves and banana notes. Easily drinkable with no major flaws but lacking some character to make this a standard.

This beer replaces Milady, which is now retired.

Poured from a 341ml bottle.

Appearance: Cloudy, hazy & pale yellow body with lots of bubbles but a very thin ring that quickly dissipates.

Smell: Bready, banana with some spice in there. Aroma is quite pleasant.

Taste: Crisp with a bit of zest and a clean finish. Balanced with some banana in the aftertaste. Fairly straightforward with a dominant wheat presence.

Mouthfeel: As it warms, more bread-like quality mixed with banana that coats the mouth. Taste starts light but gets a little heavier. Subdued spice in there. Carbonation is quite active but not unpleasant. A bit of a tart, dry finish with some yeast.

Drinkability: Refreshing enjoyable brew that drinks well, especially in the summer.

Overall: I like this one and certainly wouldn't mind picking it up again.
