4.4/5 rDev -0.2%
Appearance: Hazy gold - pours with a giant, fluffy white head, leaves blobs of lacing, retains a cap forever
Smell: Soft, bready wheat and yeast - bananas and cloves, in nice balance, in nice moderation - a touch of something lemony - nice malt base
Taste: Nicely balanced and stupidly, remarkably clean-tasting, refreshing - "refreshing" is a flavor, right? - mild banana, clove, and a touch of lemon, bubblegum - some straight-up yeast, with some yeasty spiciness - very mild bitterness - lightly bready malts, with some light graininess
Mouthfeel: Medium, but so smooth that it feels a bit fuller - nicely carbonated, refreshing
Overall: Beyond classic
This is a relatively simple beer, but it has great strength in its simplicity. The wheaty malt profile and the yeast come together in a remarkable way. The balance works better than any Hefeweizen I've ever tasted. Seriously. I should have had this years ago.

I've had this before so I mean... this is gonna be good.
A: Pours hazy light amber and looks like a sunset. Bubbly head carries a little bit of the color and it stays around forever.
S: Wheat, citrus, orange (which I think is a citrus but don't call me out on being redundant ;) )
T: ooh taste is not as good as on tap for sure. Wheat comes through big time but this bottle seems to have a little bit of bitter stale taste to it.
M: Perfect. Sits with a good body and crazy smooth. The bubbles are smooth as well rather than off putting.
This is for sure the best wheat beer I've ever had. Smooth and wheaty and it hits perfect. Certainly better on tap but a bottle is worth checking out. Light enough to be loved by the average drinker, flavorful enough to be loved by the avid beer drinker.
