Probably the weakest offering from Black Raven thus far. Had this one during late Spring as well.

Very unremarkable. Maybe they've improved this as I had it from the very first batch.

Reminded me of a watery macro to be completely honest. Needs improvement.

A: Poured a clear yellow with good carbonation and a small white head

S: Nose is pretty faint, some wheat and banana but thats about it

T: Tastes much lighter and much more muted on the flavors of banana and clove. Crisp and light.

M: Lighter bodied, crispness, taste falls flat on the end

D: Ok but not one to seek out. Go ahead and try the hefe.

Served in a pint glass at the Green Frog Cafe in Bellingham, WA. Poured a severe clear yellow with a big, fluffy white head that dissipated quickly, leaving no lacing.

As this is basically a filtered Hefeweizen, the expected banana and clove aromas are the most noticeable. The flavor profile is similar to hefe as well, with a sharpness that doesn't fit well with the others.

The body is on the thin side, sliding over the tongue without leaving much trace of it's passage. This a very drinkable beer, although I didn't find it enjoyable enough to have several of. Your mileage may vary.

As this is a style I'm unfamiliar with these scores are higher than I was inclined to give, not having any reference points. An OK beer from a solid new brewery, try it if you see it, but you don't need to seek it out.
