Hazy, golden orange and and yellow with a thick white head, though, surprisingly, it doesn't leave much lace at all on the glass.

Pleasant and somewhat simple aroma: light banana and clove with a bit of wheat. Not as strong or powerful as my favorite within this style.

Light banana, clove, a hint of black pepper, and a little pear combine for a pleasing, accessible flavor. The flavors aren't quite as big and bold as I would prefer, even within style, but I think this is a very accessible and drinkable hefeweizen.

Medium mouthfeel with ample carbonation.

I think Golden Road accomplished exactly what they sought to do with this beer: an accessible, incredibly drinkable, relatively low-alcohol, flavorful hefeweizen.

Standard hazy burnt orange color, not much head on this pour. Aroma is light banana clove. Very complete and balanced. Taste is similar. Everything you look for in a hefeweizen yet no one steals the show. Mouthfeel is fantastic. Particularly light yet still full and flavorful. Slight creaminess. This is not a style I particularly like but this is a beer I would happily drink again and again. Overall great balance and a very thoughtful and delicious approach to a style that can often be one dimensional.
