4.2/5  rDev +5.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Hazy yellow color, with a fluffy head. Initially I am getting a big sense of the yeasts in the aroma, in that it is almost 'creamy, or yogurt-like...' This isn't really a bad thing if it sounds that way. It's earthy, grainy, and some tartness and sour apple in there as well. Very complex aroma. The taste is a very soft, with a light breadiness, hint of banana, and not very spicy. Ethereal. I really enjoyed this, and would love to get my hands on more. Great spring/summer beverage.

3.44/5  rDev -13.6%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Pours a cloudy yellow with a good sized white head. Pretty much the classic look for the style.

Smell is of banana, clove, yeast, and bubble gum.

Tastes a lot like it smells, mainly banana and clove. It does finish with a hint of pepper, leaving a slightly spicy aftertaste.

Feel is about normal from the style, carbonation is a little on the light side, but still has a bit on tingle to it.

A decent wheat beer, but nothing outstanding either. It has some nice flavors, they are just a bit too subtle, would have liked to see a more forward flavor profile. This would be a good beer for a hot day, it is very easy to drink, has just enough flavor, and isn't too heavy.

4.04/5  rDev +1.5%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A modest, creamy white head floats above a murky, old gold (SRM 4-5). The head is long lasting and leaves fine lacing.

Clean warm banana bread with bubble gum upon entry. Cloves are present, but clearly a secondary element. Warmth brings out a light, white wine aroma.

The flavor follows the nose closely. It is well balanced with light acid. Sweetness and bitterness are both modest and work well together. The finish is long.

A medium body with velvety texture and no alcohol. There is a touch of a metallic scent with fizzy carbonation.

This is another exceptional summer beer enjoyed from a Franziskaner weizen glass. It is very sessionable and versatile.

great looking, pale tan and hazy, good head and lace.

Sweet yeasty and bready flavors and aromas. Clove and banana. A good portion of wheat. Standard hefe deliciousness, a very tasty one.

body is super drinkable and yet slightly chewy like a good hef should be.

Overall it's a very enjoyable brew that I'll have again.
