3.65/5  rDev +1.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Poured from the growler into a tasting snifter.

Appearance: The beer pours a cloudy golden color with a layer of off white head. There is just a hint of amber as well. The head fades to a ring around the pour.

Smell: Light and refreshing, I'm getting banana and some clove. Quite yeasty as well.

Taste: Light and not overly sweet. The yeasty note combines with banana and clove. Just a touch of bitterness joins the grain in the finish.

Mouthfeel: The body is medium with tingly carbonation and a finish that is a bit dry.

Overall: This is a nice hefe. I would say it's super interesting, but I enjoyed it.

Serving type: growler

Growler shared by ygtbsm94. Thanks Brad. The beer is hazy straw yellow with a small white head. The aroma offers the usual suspects: banana, clove, malt, wheat. Nice flavor. Refreshing and easy drinking. Light bodied with lingering banana in the aftertaste. A decent example of the style.

Poured into a pint glass, this looks like an average hefe, with a little deeper coloring than some. The aroma is also quite a bit stronger than others I've tried, and this carries over into the taste. The flavor is pretty strong on spice and citrus, with a slight taste of banana.

This is one of my favorite beers at The River Company, and knocking back a couple of these is definitely an enjoyable experience, and one of my favorite hefes.

Serving type: on-tap
