look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

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
