Appearance: Pale yellow yet nicely hazy. On top is a spongey white head.

Aroma: Mild banana notes apple skin. Little wisps of phenolic alchol notes. Cloves are among other aromas such as yeasty bits floral hop with a bit of grain.

Taste: An incredibly smooth mouthfeel to start. Banana bits toffee, floral hops are all over with a hint of grain in the finish. Malts are there as well and give off a subtle breadiness.

Notes: This one is solid very drinkable. Cheers.

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a Sierra Nevada hop tulip glass.

A: Pours a very cloudy orangish golden color with a thick white head.

S: Fruity hefeweizen yeast with a hint of spice.

T: An excellent hefeweizen. It's rich and very flavorful. Classic flavors of bubblegum, banana, and a hint of clove. A hint of tang as well. Great yeast flavors.

M: Creamy, rich, and delicious.

O: One of the best American made Hefeweizens out there.

Poured into a hefe glass. Color was a hazy amber with a fair amount of carbonation rising from the bottom. It poured a thick white foamy head that dissapaited quickly, but clung to the sides well. Aroma was a bit hoppy, along with some banana and vanilla. Taste was very slightly sweet, reminded me a banana bread that wa a bit on the spicy side. Felt great in the mouth. Coated very well, nicely carbonated. Pleasant to drink, could do a few of them with not much problem.

Feb 2014 - From Bottle. Ever pleasant even from a 12 Fl. bottle. Remember to chase the bottom with a swirl.

Spring 2013. On tap at Rattle n Hum, NYC. Spring is in the air & this really pleasant drink goes down very easily. Great, great balance in all the right places.

Nov 2012. On tap at Rattle n Hum, NYC. Back in Nov. Still slightly out of season, but this time the body feels more in tune w/the climate. Nice delicate citrus tang.

02/21/12. On tap at Rattle n Hum, NYC. Good body, great balance but a tad heavy for a session.
