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!

Weizen beers are not a style I go to very often but on hot days here in NC I do from time to time.Pours into a weizen glass a pale yellow color with not much haze,a thinner (for the style) white head atop,doesn't really have the look of a Bavarian wheat beer wich in Victory's defense it sorta isn't.Aromas of yeasty phenols and toasted cereal grain,there is some serious clove going on here.The flavors are dominated by the toasted grain with the phenols giving off some spice with hint of smoke,the feel is light and almost flat feeling wich doesn't fit the style.Kinda let down here I bought this thinking this was gonna be a hefe weizen with a bit of a punch but honestly.... not really.
