look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Pours a hazy light yellow-orange with a foamy off-white head that settles to a small cap on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Tiny chunks of sediment are seen floating around in the beer after the pour. Smell is of wheat, caramel, banana, and spice aromas. Taste is much the same with caramel covered banana flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of spice bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with solid caramel and banana qualities that work together slightly better in the taste to me.

Serving type: bottle.

Appearance: Slightly opaque pear juice in color with golden hues. Bright white head that looks alive as it moves about. Head retention and lacing are minimal.

Nose: Banana bread, wheat, hint of orange peel.

Taste: Dough, crispy mouthfeel, a little orange and yeast.

Notes: a very nice example of the style.

Pours hazy golden, with a huge head.
Smells like a nicely spiced hefeweizen, nice clove, banana and nice green herbal notes.
Delivers. Wheaty malts, nice grains. Spice is mainly (heavily) clove, with some vanilla, covering the banana, which is mild, the lower acidic apple and the even lower lemon zest (which is great).
Hops provide the expected bitterness.
A decent, by the book, hefeweizen, nothing to say.

A- Straw colored with creamy white head
S- Fruity wheat- Apple-banana baby food
T- Lacking. Good but absent. Kiss of hops. Wheaty (obviously...)
M- Almost feels like the bubbles wont let the beer touch your tongue.
O- Refreshing but not exciting. A beer I would drink again if it was sitting in-front of me, but not one I would go out of my way to purchase
