4.18/5  rDev +3.2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Not a style I look to find very often but after seeing the reviews I wanted to try it,Iam glad I did.Poured into a weizen glass a hazed golden with a shade of peach,a frothy large head atop settled very slowly into a creamy mass leaving mulitple sheets of lace behind.Aromas of banana and some toasty grain,the clove-spice is not overpowering wich is nice.Nice creamy mouthfeel its full but airy light if you can understand that.Flavors are fruity up front with some lemon pith to go along with the big banana notes,the clove and toasted cereal grain flavors finish up.A great hot weather brew well rounded and flavorful,likely the best of the style I have had I think.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a weizen glass in late 2013.

A: Strangely, almost no head. Lots of cloudy yeast.

S: Citrus, cloves.

T: Follows nose. Slight bitter aftertaste that quickly fades.

M: Smooth.

O: This is a great hef. It's very close to the German hefs, but it does have a slight hoppy edge to it. I enjoyed it.

Appearance: poured a nice golden color with light haze look. Poured a nice thick creamy head

Smell: Had a nice grain smell with a hint of citrus to my nose.

Mouthfeel: I was surprised that it had a smooth feel, with a bit of hoppyniess to it. I am glad I tried this brew as I am a fan of Hefeweizen style brews

Overall: I found this brew to be quite delicious it had a hoppiness flavor as it tilted back towards my throat the wheat flavor was distinctive and was quite present. I recommend this beer for hot dogs or grilling.

*Recommended Brew for Summertime

**note: I am not a professional beer taster, the opinions in this review are mine and mine alone.
