4.73/5  rDev +7.3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured into a hefeweizen.

Appearance. Luminous translucent orange hued straw in color. Pours with 3 fingers of head frothy head, which leave ample lacing as it dissipates to a half a finger. Tons of carbonation rises form the bottom of the glass.

Smell. Prominent banana character up front. Bready maltiness behind that along with some clove and other spiciness.

Taste. Starts with a moderate banana flavor and some slight earthyness. A slightly tart and citric flavor cuts this leading to a more clove and spice heavy second half. A low, almost imperceptible level of bitterness is there as well. Some more mild tartness leads into a dry and slightly spicy finish.

Mouthfeel. A huge amount of carbonation breaks up a relatively full bodied brew.

My go to hefeweizen. Highly recommended.
