3.6/5  rDev -0.3%

Appearance: 3.25 | Smell: 3.5| Taste: 3.75 | Mouthfeel: 3.5 | Overall: 3.5

A: The beer is hazy yellow in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high white head that quickly died down, leaving only a thin film covering the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of bananas from the yeast are present in the nose along with underlying hints of wheat.
T: Similar to the smell, the taste is dominated by flavors of bananas and some notes of wheat. It's hard to pick up any hints of cloves.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied on the palate and has a low to moderate amount of carbonation.
O: The taste of this beer is all about the bananas but there's enough underlying wheat to keep things from being overpowering. I thought that the taste was a very good representation of the style, but it could have used more head and carbonation and stronger aromas.

Presentation: Very cool label in the traditional TDBC fashion with a K-9 theme. Label gives a small description and back story on the beer, serving temperature recommendation, IBU and ABV info, web info, and a bit of brewery info.

Appearance: Aggressively poured from its 12oz brown bottle into a 16oz nonic pint led to a 1½ finger off white head of a light airy density atop a semi hazy orange hay-yellow color beer. Head retention was a modest 1min 54sec before fading to a thin coating and ring with little lacing.

Smell/Aroma: Smells of clove and banana along with a bit of sour tartness combined with a dominant wheat aspect.

Flavor/Taste: Tastes of wheat and a tart sourness on the front end with the wheat sticking around while being joined by banana and a clove spice bite with hints of citrus tartness at the midpoint. Back end is dry with a wheat and banana clove finish and aftertaste.

MouthFeel/Drinkability: On the light side of medium bodied with a crisp refreshing mouthfeel. Very easy drinking and refreshing.

Overall/Comments: A very good hefeweizen that sticks to the roots of the style while adding a bit of a tart twist. This would be great on a hot summers day. If you are in the mood for a good local hefeweizen try this out! Classified as a Hefeweizen @ 5.2% ABV. Consumed 7/7/2013.
