12 ounce bottle - $1.99 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.
"To serve, pour two-thirds into a glass, swirl and pour the rest." You're the boss, bottle!
Appearance: Rather well hazed, dull, dark yellow body with a voluminous, lasting, whitish head. Fair amount of gooey lace left on the way down.
Smell: Ah, the unmistakable aroma of wheat malt, replete with some sweet-scented, tangy qualities but also a scent of gently kneaded whole wheat bread dough. Pungent notes of semi-ripe banana and spice with a lesser hint of chewing gum and squeezed lemon.
Taste: Sweetish, tangy malted wheat with a distinct taste of grainy, mealy bread dough. Add in a few freshly-sliced lemon wedges and some dried banana chips. Good dash of earthy ground cloves. Spicy-minded hops with a low, subtle bitterness imparted. Very thin vein of tartness in the last third of the sip. Finishes dry, spicy, with little "goodbyes" from the wheat, lemons, and bananas. Nice.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium-plus carbonation. Smooth, somewhat fluffed mouthfeel which has nice depth but also a delightful airiness about it.
Drinkability: Remarkably enjoyable and certainly recommended! It was difficult completing the review before I had greedily gulped this one down. Regretfully, I picked only the one lone single, but I'll be sure to return for a proper six-pack.

Had this in a pint glass at around 45 degrees.
Appearance: Gorgeous yellow with a 2.5 finger head that stays and doesn't dissipate quickly.
Smell: It is definitely restrained although I get some banana and some creaminess.
Taste: This is where it shines. Some lemon, cream, banana, clove (although not very much), sourdough bread.
Mouthfeel: creamy, easy, superb carbonation, light.
Overall: I would highly recommend this beer as it is an excellent interpretation of this style and quite possibly my favorite hefe.
