On tap for the first time having this beer.

A-Hazy dark yellow color, frothy head

S- Really sweet banana, clove, some lemon

T- Tastes like something from smoothie king! Bananas, clove, bubble gum. Love it.

M- It's medium-light bodied, feels really creamy and frothy. Wet, thirst quenching finish.

O- Fantastic beer. Will be enjoying this one over and over all summer long.

Reviewed 4/19/13, 11.2 oz bottle in pint glass.

A - Pours a cloudy pale gold with a very large fluffy white head.

S - Spicy, coriander and a lot of it. Hints of banana and malt.

T - Light, nice, slightly sweet, malt, finishes with a yeasty spicyness. Dry not flashy but very tasty.

M - Light body, medium to high carbonation. Smooth and crisp, very drinkable.

O - Very enjoyable, light and refreshing. Not a big flavor beer but it makes you want to come back for more after every sip. The standard for hefeweizens.

11.2 ounce brown Euro bottle poured into a shaker pint glass. Cool label!

Appearance - The color of corn. Murky. Big head but it disappeared pretty quickly.

Smell - Malt. Salt water taffy (sweet). Sour.

Taste - Not to be repetitive but I taste malt and taffy. I also detect a very Belgian sour flavor (Is this because of the yeast?). Very tasty!

Mouth - Smooth and buttery. Fine yet prominent carbonation. A very substantial brew.

Overall - Delicious! I'm new to the whole hefeweissbier thing (the Shock Top/Blue Moon phenomenon has been a bit of a turn-off). Shame on me for waiting so long. I'm still not going to put a lemon wedge in my beer, though.
