There are not many times when I give a beer a perfect score, but this one TOTALLY deserves it, my goodness. Only a couple beer have made a perfect score in my book, and this is one of them indeed.

A-Pours in my big snifer, a beautiful, luscious hazy deep yellow color with a thick and creamy white head that has outstanding retention and gorgeous lacing.

S-And the aroma is no exception. It wofts notes of clove spiced green apples. Perfect for the style. Wow is all else I can say... As it warms, some very slight hints of bannana come through too.

T-The flavor is first of sweet wheaty, yeasty goodness, which is balanced by the very noticable, but perfect amount of hop bitterness. I think I might be getting some earthy hop flavor too, but that might just be the yeast characteristics. Pretty clovy in the flavor too. Which is per style. And again some hints of bannana underneath as it warms.

M-This has a full creamy body with a dry finish... Luscious indeed.

D-I could totally drink this all day and night at a barbaque or family reunion and such. This goes down so full body, yet smooth and lighter in abv so it's extremely sessionable. Very impressed with this one from SN. Another job well done, and year round too! man...

The best tasting american Brewed Wheat Beer I have had thus far, and I am a huge wheat beer fan. This beer has a perfect cloudy appearance, and tastes great, nice and malty. You can definately identify the banana and clove taste, but in a good way, very faint bitter aftertaste. If you had ever had Palanor which is a German import beer, this beer tastes like a milder flavor of that.

Recently, my dad brought me a bottle of this over to share. Wow. This is my favorite hefeweizen. I keep thinking that I'll find one that I like better, but nope, this is it.

The best looking hefeweizen I've seen. Pours a brilliant golden yellow, with orange hues. Perfectly cloudy with suspended yeast. Amazing in the sunlight.

A hard pour yields a one finger head that sticks around a bit.

Smell is a nice balance of bread, banana, and a hint of clove creeping through.

Taste follows suit. Carbonation packs a light punch right off the bat. Leaves a nice sweet banana taste on the tip of the tongue, cloves in the nose, and a bready, mild bitterness on the back of the palate. There's a creamy element to the mouthfeel, which balances out the flavor.

Overall, this beer puts it all together in perfect harmony. It is, perhaps, the creaminess that yields what I find to be a perfect hefeweizen.
