Appearance - Pours hazy and is a gold-tinged yellow color with a white finger width head that fizzes away like a soda, leaving behind a fairly lifeless, barren surface. No lacing.

Smell - Primarily a citrus aroma with lesser notes of banana.

Taste - True to the nose, with a mild, lemon-like citrus flavor being the predominant character throughout. Banana is in there playing second fiddle, while hints of clove spice hit near the finish.

Mouthfeel - Light to medium in body with a fizzy, bitey carbonation that's too aggressive for the style.

Overall - There are some styles that just can't handle a bit of experimentation - hefeweizen seems to be one of them. I like my hefes laid back and completely approachable; the strong citrus and bitey carbonation just doesn't do it for me. You can't put "A European-Style Wheat Ale" on the front of the label, then completely crap on the style by overhopping and overcarbonating. Sorry Victory, a rare miss from you here.
