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

Pours cloudy and golden. Small white head that didn't last long.

Smells of yeast, wheat, and banana. Slight hint of spices.

Tastes like an above average geman hefeweizen. Has the spicy character and slight hint of banana. I usually like a little more of the banana and clove taste in my german hefe.

Mouthfeel is pretty typical. Medium body and carbonation.

Overall I like this beer and would have it again. Not as good as some of the hefewiezens I've had from germany but pretty good for the west coast.

look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Very nice golden color, few bubbles and cloudy (foggy)

Smell: the smell doesn't have any overpowering, but the scent of banana and zest are the most noticeable.

taste: I gotta say! it's pretty good, it's very balanced it's not very strong and there are no bad aftertastes. You can taste the hops a bit and it's a bit sweet and fruity. Definitely can taste a bit of banana, citrus, and a hint of spice. Very sweet and has a wheaty-spiced aftertaste that's pretty good. Very well balanced, very good beer..nothing overpowering just very good.

mouthfeel: it has a very good body, it's refreshing and light, not too dense and goes down pretty smooth.

overall: very good for starters of this style, I enjoyed it but I'm definitely going to seek out more. It has an abundance of flavors but I cannot say that it's the best of its kind but definitely a good choice to run into. I recommend this it's definitely flavorful but has no "impact" between the flavors it's very subtle but very good and refreshing.
