4.28/5  rDev +18.2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

12oz bottle poured into pint glass. Bottom of back label stamped BOTTLED ON: 07/25/11.

Appearance - Frothy, glossy barely off-white pearly sheen head with decent stick and retention.

Smell - Extremely strong banana. Reminds me of my first Weihenstephaner Hefe.

Taste - Strong banana here too. Almost too well done. Makes me wonder if some sort of artifical flavoring or syrup was used. Some dryness in the body but finishes with slight banana maltiness. My suspicion is the only thing holding back my grade on this beer.

Mouthfeel - Creamy frothiness in the head. Light to medium bodied. No astringency or any other off characters here.

Overall Drinkability - Possibly the best US hefeweizen I’ve ever had. I just fear that it’s a little too good, and my suspicion that artifical flavorings are used worries me and makes me grade this lower than I would otherwise if I knew this was a legit hefe.

Had this on tap at the Syracuse location in Destiny USA. A big, beautiful, 20 ounce glass emblazoned with the word "HEFEWEIZEN" shows up, and delivers. This brew is an excellent example of the style, and went perfectly with the flat steak I ordered.

Serving type: on-tap
