A- Pours a beautiful cloudy orange color, with good sediment floating around.
S- Heavy banana aroma dominates the nose in this one, actually reminds me of the candy circus peanuts. The alcohol come a little more to the forefront as it warms, but does not detract from it.
T&M- The taste is much like the smell, with heavy banana and some malt undertones,but you can also detect other fruits in there as well. You feel the alcohol as you get deeper in. Overall it is fairly smooth, although it does have a slightly harsh bitterness towards the end. Not much going on as far as mouthfeel. It is not very thick, but it is not watery either.
D- Overall another strong effort from the Berkshire team. Very solid, highly drinkable. If you haven't had, I recommend you give it a whirl.

Pours a very pale almost clear gold. Huge amounts of carbonation. Filmy bubbly cream-colored head. Some lacing. Looks nice
Smells typical for the style. Massive banana and clove aromas. There is a yeasty breadiness throughout. Mild spice. Bubblegum sweetness. Average but I love it
Taste follows suit. Huge banana flavor with underlying cloves. Very prominent yeast flavor. Lemony wheat twang. A little spice to balance the sweetness
Feels crisp and very refreshing. About as light bodied as they get. Doesn't feel as carbonated as it looks
Overall I'm impressed by this because I feel a lot of American hefeweizens miss their mark (my opinion of course). This has everything I would expect from a German hefe. That being said, it is really only slightly above average when compared to the likes of Weihenstephaner or Paulaner, etc. On par with Flying Dog's In-Heat Wheat

A-Pours a very cloudy yellow. Mild head. Head is thin but it hangs around and even leaves some respectable lacing.
S-Smells Hefe! Spicy and light. Bubblegum really hits me. Lemon rind and banana flesh. Breadiness is not as intense as others of the same style.
T-Bubblegum. Spicy, yeasty, and breaded. The flavors mix well together.
M-Bubbly, crisp and refreshing. Each sip induces another. Good feel.
O/D-Pretty nice. I find that BBC makes some solid beers. Nothing has ever blown me away (Coffeehouse Porter may argue with that statement) but their beers cease to disappoint. Another surprising goodie.
