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

A - A finger's worth of tightly packed perfectly level slgihtly off-white colored head... Minimal retention gives way to nothing mroe than a slight collar and and splotchy veil of lacing... The color is an extremely pale bronze... There is a slight haziness... A moderate bit of carbonation that starts a bit sluggish before ending briskly...

S - Slightly over ripened bananas... Light cloves... Pleasant wheat base... Orange zest... A hint of bubble gum... A hint of tobacco...

T - All the flavors from the aroma materialize on the palate, but are a bit more muddled... The clove and bubble gum take a bit more priority... The banana takes a bit of a back seat... Some candied sugars as well...

M - On the lighter side of medium bodied... Light but brisk carbonation... A bit sticky... The finish is slightly hard to place, but its a bit off putting...

D - A solid and respectable hefeweizen from the fine folks at Sly Fox... An outstanding aroma and just a slight notch above average in all other facets... Tasty enough that I'll have no trouble finishing off the six pack I invested in...

Dirty, dull orange in color and very murky. Poured with a short white foam that quickly dissipated. Sweet banana and wheat malt aromas with a hint of spice. On the thicker side of medium bodied with a chewy middle. Sweet banana and yeast flavors up front that transition to a bitter hoppiness in the middle. Hop flavorsv open the door to a pleasant spicyness that intensifies to the end. A touch of citrus hop bitterness closes out the spicyness at the end and this slowly transitions back to a ripe sweet banana flavor.

A: The beer is slightly hazy yellow in color and has a moderate to high amount of visible carbonation. It poured from a can into a weizen glass with a finger high white head that quickly died down and left a thin layer of bubbles on the surface.
S: There are moderately strong aromas of wheat and bubble gum in the nose.
T: The taste is similar to the smell and also has some hints of clove towards the finish.
M: It feels light-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is a very good representation of the style, has great drinkability and is rather refreshing.

A: Pours a cloudy dark golden yellow to orange in color. The beer has a finger tall creamy dense white head that slowly reduces to a thin film covering the entire surface of the beer with a couple of slightly thicker patches and a thicker ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate to strong aromas of banana and clove, exactly what I would expect from the style. There are some lighter notes of orange citrus.

T: Like the smell, the taste is also dominated by the banana and clove flavors. There is some more subtle hints of orange citrus and wheat.

M: On the lighter side of medium bodied with moderate to heavy amounts of carbonation. Creamy.

O: This beer is enjoyable, easy to drink, and quite sessionable. This could become a regular in the summer beer rotation - especially since it comes in cans and they can go anywhere (even to the pool).

Had on tap at Whole Foods in Glen Mills PA. Review from notes.

A: Pours a hazy light yellow color with a small white head on top. Medium retention, slowly reducing to a thin cap on top. Minimal lacing.

S: Lots of wheat, some yeast, and a good bit of banana. There is some light pepper and coriander as well.

T: Similar to the aroma with a good bit of banana and some doughy malt. More spice from the yeast as well.

M: Light to medium body with bubble carbonation. Drinks easy.

O: A pretty good hefe. If it were readily available where I lived I could see myself keeping it in the fridge.

Pours a hazy golden amber with a thick creamy white head. The nose is a little messy and has lots of banana. It is a bit sweet and fruity with little else. The taste is singular, hints of clove and yeast underneath a dominant banana and lemon type hefeweizen flavor with a light bitterness in the back. The body is soft and creamy, lower carbonation for a hefe but a clean crisp finish. This is easy to drink and full of flavor, very simple and lacks the carbonation and spicy balance of a great hefe.
