*Review taken from Tastingnotes, July 15th of last year
I had this on tap at Legal Harborside. I was completely blown away, possibly the best Hefeweizen I've had. Beautiful color, a darker golden color, cloudy as you might expect. Great soft head at the top leaving nice lacing on the glass. Perfect balance of banana, spice, and cloves in both the aroma and flavor. Awesome, almost creamy moutfeel. Absolutely worth a try, if this is on tap on the right kind of day, I will most certainly be ordering it.

@ the brewpub.
Translucent, dark hay color with a hearty dish soap head. Big lacey patch down the middle of my glass like a Christmas tree.
Smells liek clove and just ripe, partially green banana. Tastes like clove and just ripe, partially green banana. Spritzy. There's a soapy residue that coats my mouth after each sip that I'm not a fan of.

I was surprised to discover that CBC was brewing what might just be one of the best hefes I've had from an American brewer. Pouring a murky gold that is radiant in the sun, topped with a thick foamy head, the beer has a fantastic nose that strongly features a spicy clove character. A taste like a spicy banana bread, this is a great hefe that I will certainly return to again.

Growler purchased at CBC into a pilsner glass. Not a bad way to spend a Sunday afternoon.
Pours a hazy, cloudy, straw-gold. It actually looks like a darker tangerine towards the center of the glass, with lighter highlights on the edges. Two-finger white head with solid lacing and great retention.
The aroma is classic: bananas, bubblegum and cloves come through in roughly equal proportion. CBC really nailed the smell here, and there's a great balance of yeast and malty sweetness. A very enticing, great-smelling hefe.
The taste has more of a biscuit flavor than the smell would indicate, but those ester fruits really shine through. In addition to those bananas, there is a light lemon citrus touch. Naturally, there's a strong yeasty component that forms the backbone of the taste. Unfortunately, there's a slight lingering vegetal flavor that becomes more evident as the beer warms - it doesn't kill the whole package, but it is distracting and a little off-putting.
Mouthfeel is nice, thin without being watery. The carbonation borders on being overactive, but this is still very easy to put down.
CBC makes some of the best Belgian-style beers of any American brewery, and this is no exception. Possibly the best American hefe I've ever had, and one that I wish I'd drank more of over these summer months.
