In the glass this beer appears a clear honey amber color with a small head that quickly disappears.
I note the scent of slightly spiced citrus. As the beer warms I detect a hint of banana.
Taste is wheat with a trace of yeast. Alcohol front with a slightly bitter aftertaste.
Medium light bodied brew. With the rapid dissapation of the head I am suprised by the carbonation feel on my tongue.

I can see myself drinking this one again. I will definitly drink this again.

Pours wonderfully weizeny hazy sunshine petals into a weizen glass. Good deal, 23 ounces to savor.

Good weizen smell: white pepper wheatmalt, clove and banana. A bit stronger than most weizen smells, but still a pretty standard weizen smell.

Wonderful but not overwhelming complexity. Big banana character to start out. Like candied, sugared bananas. The potent sweetness gives way to a big burst of wheatmalt spice, heavy on the cloves and leaving allspice for the aftertaste, ending on more fruit sweetness, orange and banana.

Probably the best American hefe I've ever had. Good weizens usually go one of two ways: either they go for a spice complexity with a hop finish or a sweet complexity with a fruit finish. This is a good mixture of both, and even though it's missing the usual Ka-Pow! of hops you get from 3F, it's still very good.

Were this bottled and distributed I'd buy a couple cases worth every summer.
