Poured into a twelve ounce weizen glass from the bottle.

Color is clear straw gold, meaning they have partially filtered this beer. More of a kristalweizen. Small white head.

Smell: Not that impressive. Not the same level of bananas, but clove, fresh wheat, sugar. It passes as a hefe, but barely.

Taste: Much better. Has a smooth, creamy taste, with a small amount of banana, some clove, minimal citrus, and a good portion of wheat malt. The yeast is filtered out of this brew, so realistically it would and could be far better with that left in.

Mouthfeel: Not nearly as creamy as German hefes. Possibly due to the filtration. Without the filtration, this beer would earn far higher marks - to be honest, it's actually a Kristalweizen.

Serving type: bottle

Had this at Reagan National Airport. No fruit in glass.

A - Pours a cloudy golden color, one finger white head receded to a thin layer on top. Minimal lacing.

S - Citrus, slight banana and even slighter clove.

T - Good wheaty taste, slight banana and clove and a little orange. Would give it a 3.75 in this category if I could.

M - Creamy and smooth, good carbonation.

O - I have quite frequently been disappointed by their beer but this is one of the better GB offerings, which is good because I like their food. Could and would drink multiples. Would give it a 3.75 in this category if I could.

Serving type: on-tap
