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!!!
