look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Pours a hazy yellow-gold color, just as it should. Smells clean and fresh, bready and fruity. Tastes of banana and clove are most apparent. Excellent high carbonation leaves a crisp mouthfeel. Very refreshing and overall leaves a light footprint - nothing is overpowering or overdone. Goes down like silk. You'll want more than one of these.

look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

a- opaque dark straw color, thin head despite some serious pouring. A nice looking wheaty beer.

s- yeast comes through with some creamy sweetness. A hint of floral bite

t- mild, smooth at first, fading to banana and bread. Mild hoppy finish. Light but tasty

m- full body, tons of bubbles dance playfully about my smiling mouth.

d - a great beer. Perfect with fruit. Tasty but not overtly intoxicating. One of my favorite american wheats

4.4/5  rDev +8.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance:
A hazy banana yellow with a slight gold tinge. Pours a clean and very white head with lots of lacing at the edges.

Smell:
Not a very complex smell but simple with bits of clove, wheat and banana yeast dominating the nose.

Taste:
The banana flavor dominates with hints of wheat and clove. There's also a slight metallic under the main taste that is barely noticeable.

Mouthfeel:
Smooth and lightly carbonated drink.

Overall:
The best Hefe that I've ever had to date. A very good and refreshing beer for warm and hot days. A beer with a low enough ABV content to enjoy during the day.
