-beautiful head, didn't retain as long as expected but fairly long, top of the weizen glass has a great golden yellow orange color
- light smell but small hints of banana and yeast
-smooth beer starts with a bread like taste almost banana bread with a pleasant yeast finish
-very pleasant and drinkable, very little bite and little sweetness very good wheat beer.
-amazing beer would prefer something darker but this beer is a great example of this style

A: cloudy; pale straw in color; 2 finger pillowy white head that receded slowly to a wispy cap; OK lacing;

S: clove is predominant; banana and a little spiciness in the background;

T: a little bready up front; clove and banana take over by mid-palate and stay to the end; low bitterness on the finish;

M: light to medium bodied; highly carbonated;

O: color was very light for the style; didn't get any of the dark fruit character I expected;

Overall, a very middling beer. Nothing particular I would recommend about it other than its almost 8% ABV and a low price.

16.9 oz bottle poured into weizen glass. Hazy straw color with towering white head bolstered by tiny and big bubbles. Streaks of yeast slowly fall to the bottom. Aroma is green banana, clove, lemon, alcohol, and a little bubblegum. Taste is ripe banana, green apple, and wheat malt sweetness. A touch of clove and pepper spice lead to slight bitterness and moderate alcohol on the finish. Medium body, ultra creamy texture, medium-high carbonation, warming and abrupt finish.
