On tap at Wrigleyville Brewpub after a Cubs game. Beautiful day, sat on patio

Appearance - full pour in plastic cup, not much head by the time it arrived. dark golden color and very hazy

Aroma - fantastic, banana was very strong (no surprise there!), peach

Taste - bready, banana, cloves/spice flavor

mouthfeel- low carb, medium body, nice and creamy with a smooth finish

overall - I am a big fan of hefe's in the summer and this did not disappoint ! Would definitely pick up a growler of this if I could.

Served in a small nonic at Goose Island Clybourn, quick review from notes.
Listed as a "German-American Hopfenweizen".

Murky opaque orange, dense head of creamy foam, lots of lacing in the glass. An ever present collar and skim across the surface that never breaks.

Passionfruit and tropical mango intermingle with the traditional banana esters for a dynamite combination of fresh fruit. Possibly Galaxy hops, just a guess based on the name and aroma.

Very creamy and smooth, tropical fruit, banana, lightly sweet at first, quickly becoming slightly bitter, with a light clove spiciness in the very end. Medium bodied with ample carbonation, a solid hefe body. The body and hoppiness reminded me a lot of NG Imperial Weizen, with the fruitiness of NG Imperial Saison, but with a more tropical hop profile.

Overall very enjoyable, highly recommended.
