3.83/5 rDev -0.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4
Presentation: 12 oz brown long-neck bottle with a blurb about the beer on the back ... freshness date notched on the back label.
Appearance: Hazy pale golden yellow with a striking white lace.
Smell: Clove spice twang with hints of banana and pear.
Taste: Creamy and smooth mouth feel with a medium body. Crisp malty texture ... big lively spicy clove bite that rides on top of the rich carbonation. Mildly hopped and a decent amount of residual sweetness in the middle. Bready wheat with drying grain and trace yeast in the flavour finish the brew off.
Notes: Perhaps a touch too sweet though other than that it tastes like a freshly imported German Wheat Beer. A well crafted brew with all of the trademark flavours from the Bavarian Wheat Yeast. Bottled conditioned ... this adds to its complexity and drinkability.
Serving type: bottle

A: The beer is slightly hazy light yellow in color and has a moderate to high amount of visible carbonation. It poured into a weizen glass with a finger high head that died down, consistently leaving a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of bananas and cloves are present in the nose.
T: The taste is similar to the smell and also has some flavors of wheat from the underlying malts.
M: It feels light-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is very easy drink and refreshing. It is an excellent American representation of a German hefeweizen and tastes very similar to the weisse beers found in Southern Bavaria.
