A 22 ounce bottle from jyounger30; thank you Jay for this great brew!
The pour generates a voluminous, outright massive, fluffy white head that lingers forever. I had to stop and wait for it to settle just to finish dividing the bottle amongst the three glasses for my friends and I. The body is a vibrant, hazy, straw color. It is so hazy, in fact, that one simply cannot see through it. The smell is of wheat, strong banana, straw, some hay, a burst of citrus (primarily lemon), and some faint pine. Very well done. Similarly, it tastes of straw, bountiful banana, lemon, hay, and a strong sensation of wheat. Again, well balanced, refreshing, and just downright enjoyable. The mouth is crisp, finishes clean (slightly dry), and is very refreshing. Overall, a phenomenal brew. I couldn’t find a date code (though honestly, I didn’t look that hard at this one), but I can only assume this thing was very, very fresh.

Appearance- Yellow, hay colored with a small head and slight retention. Not as hazy as your standard hefeweizen.
Smell- Light smell with banana in the forefront and some clove.
Taste- Well balanced with no flavor completely dominating the palate. Banana and wheat in the forefront.
Mouthfeel- Light body with a somewhat sour aftertaste that is not unpleasant.
Overall- A well balanced and drinkable hefeweizen. A very solid beer that I will certainly buy again.

Golden, not as hazy as typical hefe's; I would almost call this a Krystalweitzen, much more clear than typical American craft attempts at this, and I am ok with that.
the aromas is not overwhelming, also a plus compared to the over the top nonsense usually out there. Some of the usual banana, clove, citrus, but definitely more subtle than most
The taste wins it for me, almost background notes only, which I like, some banana and clove, but not overwhelming
crisp and very drinkable, refreshing as most wheats are or should be.
Kudos to an American Brewery that has several entries besides IPAs!!!
