12oz brown bottle, no freshness date.

The wheat stands tall with dense froth, very cloudy but not enough to block the view of all of the bubbles. Powdered clove, dried bananas and chalky yeast infiltrate the nostrils. Smooth creamy yet bitty from the yeast presence ... there is a nice little crispness snap as well. Big yeast and wheat twang, dry clove and a fruitiness (banana and pear for the most part). Faint esters and more yeast. Finishes very dry.

A good stab a the style, a bit too much yeast if that is possible but it seemed to have slightly taken over here. Good drinking regardless.

4.1/5  rDev +13.3%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

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.

beautiful semi-transparent amber color. this has great hints of citrus and goes down very smoothly. it reminds me almost of blue moon's citrus smell/taste but a more complex flavor. this has a subtle clove/cinnamon smell but not so much in the taste. would be great paired with an orange slice or a pineapple/banana garnish.

Pours golden and cloudy. The Thirsty Dog brewing company has a number of good beers, and this is the second summer seasonal I've had this year (the raspberry ale is another one worth trying). This hefeweizen features very strong (in my opinion too dominating) wheat and yeast flavors with less emphasis on the clove, banana, and citrus, although they're still present. The taste begins fairly sweet but ends dry. As I generally prefer a sweeter hefeweizen, I probably won't be searching for this one again, but for what it is it's not bad.
