4.33/5  rDev +19.6%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Poured from a bottle to a weizen glass. Had a yellow-brown color and a cloudy consistency with some sediment. There was a huge, long-lasting head and some good lacing. Not necessarily consistent with kristalweizen style, but good-looking.

S: Had a sweet smell of bananas and other light fruit, combined with wheat.

T: There was the flavor of bananas and wheat up front, with that bubble gum taste going down, that's typical of the style. Surprisingly tasty.

M: High level of carbonation and a smooth finish.

D: This is an tasty beer and one of the best American examples of the weissbier I've had.

Serving type: bottle

4.5/5  rDev +24.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

12 oz bottle poured into a snifter - fridge - enjoy by 08/2009

Appearance: Pours a hazy dull orange color with a 1" ivory head. Large bubbles proliferate the surface, while small ones make up the body of the foam. Decent retention with some spotty lace remaining on the glass.

Smell: Banana, wheat malt, spicy clove and even some nutmeg. This one smells a lot spicier than most. A tad of hops, but mostly malt.

Taste: Spicy Belgian yeast, banana bread, nutty oils, hops, pepper and clove. A very tasty beer that has plenty of flavor. I love it.

Mouthfeel: Sweet, spicy, yeasty, plenty of lively carbonation, medium body, chewy, bready and a little bit of alcohol to top if off.

Drinkability: Awesome. This would be considered a great beer if it had hype to surround it. A very good example of the style. Worth seeking out to try.
