Had this at the Hopkins Airport in Cleveland

A - Pours a very hazy golden honey color, fairly big white head that quckly recedes leaving a thin layer on top. Slight lacing.

S - Mildly wheaty, some banana and cloves

T - Nice mild tartness, banana pudding on the finish, in between get cloves.

M - Creamy, mild carbonation

O - Not a bad rendition, maybe a liitle weak, but has a nice balance, and has a refreshing finish. A beer you can enjoy a couple of at one sitting

The appearance was good,as expected a semi-blonde bubbly,brew with a nice foamy head. The odor was sweet,and malty,some spice the odor was quite enticing. This was my first and last Hefeweizen,nothing against the maker. I felt like I drank a beer that someone else had drunk from a baseball game that had a big wad of gum in her mouth. Honestly..down the drain it went. Overall its my loss ...just couldnt appreciate this style of beer.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Dark yellow golden in color, with a massive, dense, and persistent white head. There is a moderate amount of suspended sediment.The lacing is thick and patchy.

Aroma: Lots of tart wheat and grapefruit rind hops, no banana notes, and only modest cloves.

Taste: Solid wheat malt from start to finish. This is not to be understated, the malt presence is remarkably solid. Cloves are present, but not to the extent expected, there is a banana note, but it is faint. Finishes with tart wheat, some very mild herbal hops, and a late wave of cloves.

Mouth feel: Smooth and solid, very, very full.

Drinkability/notes: A very good, well-crafted example.

Presentation: Packaged in a twelve-ounce brown glass long neck bottle with a pry-off crown, served in a standard Pilsener glass.
