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

Appearance: Hazy golden yellow with a nice two finger head that fades pretty quickly, not a ton of noticeable lacing on the glass.

Smell: Predominately banana, with some clove and lemon as well. A bit of spice hits the nose as well.

Taste: Banana again, with some grassy notes and citrus fruit. Also get the cloves from the aroma.

Mouthfeel: Pretty light bodied and very refreshing and smooth with nice creaminess. Drinks very easily.

Overall: A very very good beer here. Not quite as good as their Hefeweissbier but still a definite must try!

A - Slightly hazy golden yellow with a few finger white head.

S - Banana and clove dominate. Fruity esters and light, tart lemon peel.

T - Just like aroma it if predominantly banana and clove. Sweet wheat malt and yeasty esters round out the flavor.

M - Light, maybe a bit crisp, but definitely creamy. Sweet throughout with a dry lingering finish.

D - Can't believe I waited so long to try this. One of the best Weizenbocks I have had.
