On tap at Piece Brewery Chicago.

Holy hell! What a great beer! True this is my favorite style of beer, but this drink was damn near perfect! Appearance was perfect cloudy yellow with thin white head. Smell was yeasty and wheaty, with strong banana notes. Taste was just perfect...I would have gotten another one had I not already had the Stout and Kolsh! Mouthfeel was smooth and crisp. Overall a damn awesome beer! I'd make the trek to Wicker Park just to grab this one again and again.

3.53/5  rDev -14.3%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

First had: on tap at the brewpub

Review from notes. Hazy straw-yellow pour, topped with a cap of foamy white head; moderate retention and a bit of lacing. Yeasty aroma, wheat, banana esters, light spice and a bit of citrus. More of the same in the taste, bready yeast, banana and clove, light citrus, wheat...pretty much a typical hefe. Medium body, fairly smooth, decently drinkable overall.

Serving type: on-tap

Served in a weizen glass at the brewpub.

Continuing my march through Piece's offerings. This one pours a hazy straw topped by a finger of lightly off-white foam. The nose comprises banana, clove, light orange peel, and vanilla. The taste brings in more of the same, complete with a veritable blast of bananas and cream. The body is a light medium, with a very light moderate carbonation and a smooth-as-hell feel. Overall, a very strong hefe, possibly the highlight of my visit today.
