This is a great beer. Light lemon yellow pour with a billowing head. Huge banana nose, with notes of yeast and brown bread and biscuit. Very, very nice. Taste is similar with banana and a lot of breadiness. A little bit of spiciness on the back end, more cinnamon than black pepper. Finish is a touch watery, but that is my only knock on this beer. Perhaps I am not terribly familiar with the style and thus lack a baseline for review. Regardless, this beer is fantastic and I am absolutely loving it. For me, more impressive than the highly rated hefeweissbeer. Pick this up, its fantastic....

On tap @ Library Alehouse.
A: Pours a cloudy dark yellow with a half-inch thick white head which fades slowly to a thin cap and leaves spots of lace.
N: Estery, cloves, bananas, wheaty, faint bacon.
T: Sweetish malts balanced well with estery fruits, bananas, cloves, with a mild ABV heat and a nice woodyness.
M: Medium body and semi-medium carbonation. Fruity, estery and wheaty finish.
O: Hard to describe how intricate this beer is. Almost a cognac-like thing happening which is probably from a magical combination of the wheat and malts. An interesting "big" weizen. Again, why have I not tried this before. Really liked. Give it a try.
