(From notes)

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a mini beer mug.

Appearance: The beer pours a light golden color, with light carbonation visible through the glass. The head is super-fizzy (like a citrus soda such as Sprite), and it fades quickly into nothingness.

Smell: Raisin bread comes to mind, with perhaps just a hint of banana flavor. Mostly sweet, with a subtle sourness which is not entirely unpleasant.

Taste/Mouthfeel: Tastes mostly sour, with a strong citrus/banana zing to it. Moderately heavy carbonation leaves bready tones on the tongue. A little strong for a hefe, in my opinion.

Overall: Not a bad brew...but there are better out there.

4.71/5  rDev +16.3%
look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75

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.
