look: 5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

Wow, my first 5. and mostly because this is hands down the best hefe I've ever had. Damn.

Pours yellow orange below a peerfect fluffy head.

Smell is a spicy banana clove yeastiness that literally permeates the entire room. Simply amazing.

Yeasty flavor, huge clove flavor. Esters, grass and fruit to boot. This goes above and beyond.

Chewy yeastiness adds alot of body to this brew, but it remains light and delicious overall.

Extraordinarily drinkable any time of year. Refreshing when its warm out, spicy and fulfilling in the cold. I give it a five based on the fact that it literally takes this style to another level. Sure, if given the choice of only this or Arrogant Bastard for the rest of my life, I'd choose the arrogance, but this is one fine, well crafted brew.
Hot damn!
