3.75/5 rDev +3.3%
Appearance: Nice golden color with decent white head, leaves some lacing
Smell: Nice noble hop and wheat aroma
Taste: Wheat, clove, spice flavors up front. Next is some hop bitterness and noble hop flavors
Mouthfeel: Light body, good carbonation
Overall: Good but not fantastic or special hefeweizen. Could get much more yeast and wheat flavors in this. Not disappointed though.

3.39/5 rDev -6.6%
12oz can with no freshness date. Served in a Dogfish Head shaped pint glass.
Appearance: Pours a golden yellow color with 2 fingers of a white soapy head. Decent retention and light spotty lacing. Body is lightly hazy with some visible fine yeast particles. Medium levels of visible carbonation
Smell: Banana taffy, wheat, big yeast character, medicinal band-aid aroma, bubble gum.
Taste: More of the same as the aroma. Banana, spicy wheat/yeast character,lemon rind and a light tartness in the finish that I'm not a huge fan of.
Mouthfeel: Light bodied and crisp. The wheat contributes some body, but overall it has a somewhat watery feel.
Overall: Not bad by any means, not impressive either. I wouldn't say avoid it, but I see no reason to seek it out.
