3.79/5  rDev -0.5%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Pours a hazy dark brown with a dense, frothy 2 inch khaki head that dissipates extremely slowly, leaving sheets of lacing.

Brown sugar, burnt caramel, banana, wheat, clove, and orange form the initial aroma. Yeast and fruity esters add complexity.

Flavor reveals appley yeast esters at the base, which pair nicely with orange, clove, and banana that hit mid palate. There's a substantial toasted, nutty malt and wheat backbone that carries through to the lightly dry finish.

Body is a touch on the light side, with slightly high carbonation.

Yeast esters and wheat are well represented. Not a standout in any particular area, but a characterful brew that's worth a try. Apple becomes overwhelming as it warms.

3.7/5  rDev -2.9%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Bottle from Harvest Market.
Pours a cloudy murky reddish brown with a tightly bubbled off white head that shows moderate retention. Aromas of banana and clove with hints of spice, light fruit, and earth. The flavor is fruity and spicy with clove and banana dominating. Light yeasty earthy flavors come in as well. Medium body with a spirited level of carbonation and a bubbly sweet mouthfeel. Nice dark Hefe, a bit bubbly for my tastes but they usually are.
