The Sunspot is a decent Heffe. The beer poured a cloudy gold with rich head that is leaving a lacing. The scent carries banana and clove. The taste is slightly sharp toward the clove, but not over done. The mouthfeel is lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall this is a sessionable Heffe and should be enjoyed by those that prefer this style.

Original review from draft in 2011:

A - Pours a hazy golden brown with a finger of head and some nice lacing.

S - very nice aromas of banana, cloves, some citrus and wheat.

T -- Similar to smell, nice citrus and banana, great wheat presence and apparent but not overwhelming spices. One of the best hefeweizens I've had.

M -- Medium mouthfeel with a nice creaminess.

O -- My first from Greenbush, and it is very impressive. Would definitely have this again.

Rated it 4.5 across the board.

Bottle review May 2014:
Not sure what happened to this beer (I think the bottle was pretty fresh) but this bears little resemblance to the beer I originally reviewed. Not much citrus, and an unpleasant bitter finish. Would be willing to try on draft at the source again, but very glad I bought a single bottle.
