4.35/5 rDev -1.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Appearance: Hazy medium golden color with an extraordinarily large white cloudtop head, moderate and natural appearing carbonation, lots of stickly lace. The head exhibits extraordinary retention.
Aroma: Consists of the prototypical cloves and ripe bananas that define this style.
Taste: Begins with lots of soft carbonation and a quite full bread malt flavor and lots of yeast, towards the middle of the taste the clove and ripe banana flavors assert themselves. At the end of the taste some mild hops appear along with some residual malt flavor. The finish is clean and a bit dry.
Mouth feel: The mouthfeel is smooth and creamy.
Drinkability/notes: While I do not particularly care for the Hefeweizen style, it must be conceded that this is a superb beer and a must try for anyone who is a serious student of world=class beer.

4.54/5 rDev +2.9%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5
appearance- golden yellow with an extremely slight amber hue in the middle. Foamy, two finger head produced.
aroma- sweet notes of wheat, orange/banana
Taste- Very similar to nose and par for the course with the expected hefe flavors. Where this is unique is that there is a slight vanilla flavor that melds perfectly with the creamy texture of the beer.
Feel- As stated before this has a great creamy texture, while being clean and incredibly drinkable.
Overall- Great beer and certainly one of, if not, the best Hefe's I've tried so far. The vanilla creaminess aspect definitely separates this from the pack.
