*was turned on this beer by my bro

Appearance- beautiful golden yellow with a thick foamy billowing head, loads of vibrant carbonation stream rapidly up the glass, you cant get a more beautiful looking beer then this

Smell- bananas, clove, malty, citrus, all kinds stuff going on

Taste- tons of wheat flavors like banana and even citrus up front with a lot of malt sweetness nicely pulled in by nice drying spice and finish, really great flavor and balance

Mouthfeel- light bodied and refreshing, just very crisp

Drinkability/ overall- this beer is so incredible when it comes to drink ability i cant tell you its through the roof, never once do i feel im drinking a 7.7 percent beer, overall this is with out a doubt the best wheat beer I have had to date it has the wheat flavors but the bigger body and dryness I look for and enjoy in a beer, this beer is the proof for the non hard core wheat fan of how delicious these beers can be, i enjoy that doesn't have a lot of caramel that some of this style have, one I could drink all night at any time of the year just great stuff cant say enough from a great brewery

4.71/5  rDev +10.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75

A - 4.5 - Nice golden yellow color with a big white head on it that sticks just about forever.
S - 4.75 - You can literally smell it from arms length. Banana, vanilla yogurt, orange, white pepper, wheat bread in the background. It's so fresh and good.
T - 4.75 - Banana, wheat, fruity yogurt, bubble gum. This is a pretty ridiculously good beer, esp for the price.
M - 4.5 - Light - medium, alc covered, aftertaste is banana bread.
O - 4.75 - This beer has so much potential to be sickeningly sweet and cloying but it completely avoids that and blends all the flavors of a German bock beer in a way that's so good, you'll never want to touch an American wheat beer again.

Bottle to Weizen glass-

A - Rich, golden, and inviting with slight carbonation. Rich white two finger head and deep cloudy body.

S - Fruity and flowery aromas all around.

T - Not quite as light as a hefeweizen--has a more pronounced alcohol flavor but is very balanced. Still get some of that sweet, biscuity, banana type flavor on the back end.

M - Rich mouthfeel with just enough carbonation. Sweet/biscuity flavor lingers on the palate.

O - Outstanding. While I do enjoy a hefeweizen, this style and beer are more up my alley. A bit more bite, but well balanced. A must try.

One of my all-time favorite brews.

A king-sized, off-white head tops out above the rim of a Weizen glass. Color is light brown with yellow hues at the light.

A fusion of spices (clove, nutmeg), banana, lemon peel, and vanilla cake to the nose.

Taste is powerful with bold spicy and fruity notes that mix to form a completely unique flavor profile.

A complex beer of the old guard that doesn't have to punch you in the mouth to get its point across.
