look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5
Poured out a rich copper-gold-orange into my Schneider Weisse glass. Huge, fluffy white head on top that faded out to foam and film. Holding it up to the light, I can still barely see the silhouette of my hand behind it. Hard to knock this beer's appearance, it's almost picture-perfect. If the head had stuck around a bit longer, I would have given it a 5.
The nose is a big, musty-floral brush stroke. Orange zest and lemons hang out after the main flower scents fade. It's rich and complex. The taste follows form -- complex citrus and floral flavors in front of the musty malt-hop background. Rich and deeply flavorful.
The mouthfeel is hefeweiss-perfect: thick without being chewy, carbonated just enough to avoid a harshness on the tongue. One of the best mouthfeels of any non-stout I've ever had. And the drinkability goes up because of it -- it's such a pleasure to drink such a tasty, almost-creamy brew. One of the best beers I've ever had.

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.
