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.
