3.35/5  rDev -17.5%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

My first Hefe but wasn't exactly what I expected but still liked it.

A - Cloudy golden yellow. Full white head that doesn't subside quickly. Strong lacing until the last drink.

S - Phenolic with a bread and yeast aroma. Some light grain and some Belgian funk is present.

T - Strong phenolic clove flavor with yeast, bread, and wheat character on top. Has subtle hints of banana and vanilla that settle out after the clove. Some sweetness with the spiciness but without bitterness. Spice from the phenolic covers the light hops bitterness but still a little noble hop flavor underneath. Similar to a Belgian wit or blond but with more clove and less sweetness.

M - Lighter mouth-feel. Has great carbonation for sitting in the bottle for an extended period of time. light body make this brew refreshing without being too dry.

Overall, this is a nice summer brew when it's too hot for a heavier beer. Not my favorite but will harvest the yeast and probably brew a clone in the near future. I suspect that this is a very good example of the style with the strong clove and yeast taste but I know that there are some Hefe's with more banana and bubblegum flavor.
