Oklahoma

3.88/5  rDev -4.4%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3.75

Pint bottle into a pilsner glass.

A - Hazy light tan/yellow (a bit livid) with a quickly dissapating white foam that leaves almost no lace. Really a bit clearer than a lot of hefeweizens I've seen.

S - Rising bread dough. Yeasty with a hint of banana.

T - Lots of banana and bread- start to finish. Oh and some cloves! Just a slight hint of hops toward the end that very nicely compliments the overall character. A bit cloying, though.

M - Ebullient and full. Just as nice as it warms a bit.

O - Really a bit more robust than Weihenstephaner or Paulaner. I brewed a very nice all-grain quasi-hefe once (with T-58). I'd not really noticed the banana flavour and never cloves in those like I did in this one. It's nice, but I'm not sure I like it more than Paulaner. Dings in score for the cloying, overwhelming-ness. In some of my reviews, brew gets dinged for not having much "muchness". This one has a bit much "muchness" in flavour. Still good, though!
