22 ounce bottle. Served in a weizen glass, the beer pours a hazy gold color with about a 3-4 inch frothy white head. Head retention is excellent, and there's a decent amount of lacing. Aroma is nice and yeasty, the brew smells like clove, lemon peel, bananas, wheat/bready malt and some grassy hops. Taste is similar to the aroma, but there's also a bit of pear and orange peel noticeable, along with a slight bitter finish. Mouthfeel/body is light/medium, it's smooth, easy to drink and has a good amount of carbonation. I think it's a good brew, definitely worth picking up at $4.99 a bomber.

Pale yellow in color with a heavy haze. Poured with a huge, frothy, white foam that reduced to a healthy white cap. Grainy wheat aromas are dominant with sweet banana, yeast, lemon zest, and light spicy notes. Medium bodied with assertive, tangy carbonation. Spicy, peppery hop flavors from the start that peak with a tangy, crisp bite in the middle and slowly taper to the end. Sweet banana flavors follow the crisp bite in the middle followed by lemon zest to the finish. Sturdy, grainy, wheat malt backbone throughout. A robust, flavorful hefeweizen that was crisp and refreshing at the same time.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Hazy golden color with a two finger creamy off white head

Smell: Big spiced banana aromas with a sweet malt undertone.

Taste: Bold, fresh hefeweizen flavors. Banana and cloves play together nicely with an undertone of sweet malts, yeast, and hops

Mouthfeel: lighter body; Smooth with a moderately bitter finish

Overall: This is bolder tasting than most American wheat beers I've had which I appreciate. It has noticeably fresh hefe characteristics with a hoppy presence and a undertone of sweet malts. It's not your typical hefeweizen, however, I enjoyed it greatly on this summer afternoon. Cheers!
