A good solid hefeweizen. Looks the part.
Shoots off some mild banana notes, mostly cloves I'm getting.

Somewhat drier than a lot of other hefs and not at all cloying. Almost full bodied. Quit upfront, not a shy daisy like some can be.

Finishes long and a little grainy but all the while tasty.

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

Appearance: Pours a hazy lemon yellow with a 2-3 finger frothy head which dissipates quickly. Nice lacing throughout.

Smell: Hints of wheat and banana with a slight hint of citrus.

Taste: Nice spice flavor up front with hints of banana and just a bit of malt. Very mild bitterness at the finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a nice amount of carbonation. Crisp and very smooth.

Drinkability: Very drinkable which is saying something for me because I tend to shy away from wheat beers.

Overall: Excellent representation of the style. I would definitely recommend this.
