look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

16oz can, no canning date. Poured into a hefeweizen glass 7/18/2014.

A- Hazy straw yellow body, with a fairly thick white head that is short-lived, but you can see tons of carbonation rising up from within the beer to the surface, it's pretty much just like if the beer was in the primary. No lacing.

S- Banana, cloves, bread. Pretty much everything you expect from yeast. Pretty good smellin' hefe, as good as anyone can expect.

F- A bit of a letdown actually, up front it's fairly bland and the cloves and spices don't really kick in until you're past the halfway point. It gets a bit better as it warms up, but still, it's a bit of a letdown up front.

M- Medium bodied, just about right, and despite the lack of head, there is plenty of bubbles to be had on the mouthfeel. Just about what I would expect from a good hefe in terms of mouthfeel.

O- Smells great and feels great on the palate but the palate of the beer itself is missing something on the front end that I would find in a bottle of Weihenstephan. Now that stuff is magic. Still, this is a good hefeweizen that is better than the majority of the local Hefes I get here in Wisconsin.
