Serving Type: Bottle

A: Deep golden color with the typical cloudy look from hefeweizens. Decent sized head that dissipated after about 30 seconds but left a little bit of lacing.

S: Definitely smells of citrus and bananas. There is a nice hint of spices in the background as well, maybe cloves or cinnamon

T: The fruitiness stands out, first you get the bananas and the citrus creeps up towards the end

M: Very smooth and easy to drink with a decent amount of carbonation

O: Overall one of the best domestic hefeweizens I've had. It has complex flavor layering, but easy to drink at the same time. Fantastic beer would go great on a hot summer day. Definitely getting more of this soon.

Pours not unlike the color of grapefruit juice, a cloudy, tan yellow with a slightly off-white head. No lace and very little retention, dropping to a film within a minute of the pour.
Smell is full of malt, banana, citrus, wheat and spices. Well balanced and nicely complex.
Taste is the same: malt, spice, wheat and to a lesser degree citrus and banana. Smell is more balanced but they equal in complexity.
Medium full body with an effervescence that is sharp at first but mellowed quickly to a nice, drinkable level. Aftertaste encourages sessioning as does the balance. Had this both straight from the bottle and from a pint glass. Glass wins hands down, like drinking a completely different beer.
