3.55/5  rDev +0.3%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

12 oz bottle courtesy of fthomasl pours a surprisingly clear-esque gold color with a massive, fluffy white head. Meringue-like retention and lace.

Nose seems more American wheat than hefe, there is a strong wheat base with a floral-grassy hop but is lacking in yeasty phenols. There is some banana and clove, but not as much as I would like.

Taste throws down some more clove, banana is still light and the accompanying wheat and mild hop is well played. Maybe think of this as a hefe-light? Its a decent beer, but seems to fall a bit on the watery and "not yeasty enough" side of things. It is quite refreshing and quaffable, the drinkability is off the charts and I think I could grab a sixer or two in the summer. It would be hard to pick this over some fresh Franziskaner though.

look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

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!!!
