4.75/5 rDev +7.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4 | overall: 5
Appearance: Pours to a hazy gold with a decent amount of white foam.
Smell: Yeasty aroma with a hint of banana. Classic, light, Hefeweizen aroma -- excellent!
Taste: Opens smoothly and gently with a hint of bread, yeast, and banana. Aftertaste is pleasant and fades quickly. Nothing in the taste overwhelms or is out of balance.
Mouthfeel: Slighly carbonation-based bite initially, but this fades quickly. A smooth feel follows the initial opening.
Drinkability: This beer is enjoyable in numerous situations. It is smooth and refreshing as a session beer, an excellent companion to many types of food, and interesting enough as a solo project. At 5.4% ABV, one can enjoy several without impairment.
To me, this beer is the standard to which other Hefes are held.

4.21/5 rDev -4.5%
look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5
Poured into my new Schneider weizen glass.
A: Cloudy yellow golden rod with very active carbonation, two inch head with lacing all around.
S: Bananas on front, slight yeast scent on back-end, turns a little bready or nutty as it matures.
T: Slightest of orange on the very front end that quickly vanishes, mellow banana and wet walnuts throughout as the prominent characteristics. I wanted a stronger taste here, but still enjoyable.
M: Light, smooth, and refreshing with a medium carbonation that turns high and bitey on the back-end.
O: Beautiful appearance, great carbonation, and bananas throughout. Love it. Looking forward to enjoying weizens this coming spring and summer.
