look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Appearance
Poured into a pint glass. Beer pours a light-golden color with a bright, white head. Hazy with sediment.

Smell
Sweet, ripe bananas with slight citrus smell. Almost reminiscent of mangos.

Taste
Up-front bananas and then citrus, with a very slight, refreshing bitterness at the end.

Mouthfeel
This beer has moderate levels of carbonation with slight astringency, but somehow managed to make me feel like I was drinking velvet.

Overall
Light, fluffy, delicious. A well-balanced hefe that has a pleasing silkiness.

For whatever reason, I've completely overlooked this beer the past few years. Finally, I decided to give it a try this year. I'm an idiot for not doing this a long time ago.

A: Pours a cloudy burnt golden color with tons of visible carbonation in the glass. A nice, creamy white head settles to about 1/2 finger.

S: An awesome combo of banana and clove with some bready malt. A touch of earthiness in there as well.

T: Really nicely done here. An initial hit of clove and bready malt, followed by a nice, but not too sweet, dose of banana bread and wheat bread. Finish brings just a kiss of earthy hops and some orange peel. Prickly carbonation and a light and creamy mouthfeel. Not a whole lot about this I would change. This is a keeper.
