3.8/5 rDev -13.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
A - Mammoth head off of a standard pour... The crater like head is pure white and made up of various size chunky bubbles... Stellar retention... Good stickiness... The color is pale golden yellow... Faint orange hue... Hazy...
S - Lemon zest... Clove... Coriander... Mint... Grainy... Yeast... Banana... Orange... Faint peppery notes...
T - Taste was far more subdued than I would have expected based both on the nose and reputation of this beer... Textbook Hefeweizen with well balanced hints of banana, citrus, wheat, and yeast... The spiciness is much weaker than the nose would lead you to believe though faint clove and peppery notes can be detected...
M - Light bodied... Slightly creamy... Perfect amount of carbonation on the tongue (more than a little, but not too much)... Exceptionally crisp... Refreshing and smooth...
D - Very easy drinking... Accessible... Sessionable... Stellar in all areas but taste... The taste is better than average, but doesn't live up to the other categories which are at an all-star caliber...

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.
