look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

Sampled on-tap at Cricket's in Waco, TX. Once without lemon, once with (though discarded quickly). Normally I'm not a huge fan of American Hefes, but this an exception.

Appearance: Golden, with almost a pearly opaque appearance from the yeast (looks like a mid-log phase culture). While it's not the most dense hefe in terms of yeast that I've ever seen, it's still up there.

Smell: The aroma is very strong. Strong notes of bubblegum, cloves and banana.

Taste: This is very complex, right up there with the German Hefes I've had. Notes of clove, citrus and banana, not too overpowering. My friends have said bubblegum, but I find that to be mostly on the nose.

Mouthfeel: Smooth and creamy, moderately carbonated.

Drinkability: A great beer to drink on hot summer days, or anytime for that matter. I'll probably have several more of these before I head back to Boston.

Overall: This is the first American Hefe that I've had that really nails the style. Probably one of my favorite hefes. I only wish I could get this in Boston.

Serving type: on-tap
