On tap at Geneva Ale House - Geneva, IL
Cloudy, straw colored ale, with a frothy, white he that holds good retention. Nice nose of banana, clove , yeast, citrus, wheat. Sharp citrus - namely lemon & grapefruit rind, banana, nutty, wheat, yeast, clove, white pepper; more bitter than a traditional German Hefeweizen. Creamy, medium body, definitely refreshing. I prefer a more traditional here, but this was nice for a change-up with some extra American hops.

The yarnbomb is a decent heffe for those that do not like alot of clove and banana. This beer only offer hints of each none that are overpowering. I think rye was used to help the beer clear the pallate. The appearance was a clody yellow with white head. The smell includes clove, banana, and other citrus zest. The taste has a very nice hop and all the smells are included in the taste. The mouthfeel was light in body and decent carbantion even after being in the growler for over 4 days. Overall....I liked this beer.

Served in a shaker pint glass at Small Bar - Division.

Dammit, still more Olympics on the tube during this bar-hopping excursion, but at least I've got a new Solemn Oath brew in front of me. It pours a cloudy amber-straw topped by a finger of lightly off-white foam. The nose comprises lemon zest, orange zest, light banana, vanilla, light black pepper, and a touch of coriander. The taste holds notes of lemon zest, orange peel, banana peel, coriander, cardamom, and light grapefruit peel. Things are a bit bitterer here, but still pretty tasty. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a sorta/kinda dry finish. Overall, a tasty hefe, though one that comes dangerously close to witbier territory. Still, good times.
