Notes/Commercial Description:
This medium to full-bodied beer, pale to amber in color, is most accurately described as a Bavarian wheat beer. The aroma and flavor of this unfiltered beer is decidedly fruity and phenolic — a big word for a brew that tastes like cloves, nutmeg or sometimes vanilla with banana-like esters.

3.45/5  rDev -10.6%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

Hazy wheat hue unfiltered 100%, beige head fine speckled lacing. Aroma big over ripened banana notes with clove and vanilla exploding on the senses. Flavor has bubblegum sweetness, clove and vanilla, a hint of citrus and malted wheat notes. Big over ripened banana pushes it into the realm of almost cloying, which doesn't settle well with me considering a can of Nebraska Brewing Eos hefeweizen cans in the Burgh will run you around 40 bucks plus tax. Needless to say there's many better PA brewed versions including Yuengling Summer wheat, the mouthfeel on this has some sturdy carbonation big malt layers, sharp wheat/citrus some balance but the yeast phenolics here are out of control with the ripe banana, vanilla, clove notes making it a bit cloying for me. Overall, still easy to drink and a solid American version of a hefeweizen just nowhere near as good as the German versions or Pennsylvania Deutsch population that has carried on the tradition of great hefeweizen.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Poured into a tall hefe glass: color is gold, dense and opaque, head is white and frothy, medium sized bubbles, some lacing.

Smell is bread, biscuit, wheat, toasted malts, some light banana, clove, and some bubble gum.

Taste is less bready and wheaty than the nose, but good flavors, toast, wheat and biscuit, similar to the aroma there are some banana and clove notes.

Mouthfeel is quite solid, good presence and lingering flavor, not too drying.

Overall, a very solid hefe interpretation, yeast off notes could me more pronounced and maybe more wheat flavor, but it has a good presentation and clean mouthfeel.
