look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75

Poured into a nonic pint glass. Bottle marked “4173”

Refreshing. One of the best beers I have ever had. You are either going to love it or hate it. Massive clove and phenolics. I first had this beer at an adult function for my child’s catholic school. It was a German themed event and everybody, even those I would not consider craft beer drinkers, loved it. 4.75

A – Clear, but no brilliant (-), pale yellow/straw colored with a white on white two-finger mousey head, some lacing. 4.5

S – Cloves, spicy, yeast, good bananas 4.75

T – Pepper spicy, slight bubblegum, very phenolic, slightly sweet, some hoppy bitterness in the finish with a fruity tartness. 4.75

S – Medium-light bodied with a dry finish, some chewiness/maybe creaminess, slightly coating. 4.5

Serving type: bottle

16.9 oz. bottle poured into wheat beer glass

L: pale yellow, clear as glass; MASSIVE white head of foam that won't dissipate ... lasts and lasts and so solid I have no choice but to drink through it; head is at least 2 inches; a little stick, almost no lace, but the pour is a show.

S: sour bananas; sweet bubble gum; lemon; yeast

T: super sweet lemon yogurt; bananas; yeast and more yeast

F: a tad light but perfect for drinking lots and lots

O: wheat beers aren't my bag, but man is this good; super drinkable and fun to look at ... it puts on a show. it has just enough tartness to take a little off the sweet banana thing, which for me is perfect. at some point I'm going to get more serious about trying more of the wheat beer family, and I have a feeling this brew is going to stick in my top five ... right now it's No. 1.
