Growler driven across three states, in my glass within 48 hrs.

Pours like a wheat. Hazy, pale golden with fluffy white head that lingers quite nicely. Nice carbonation out of the growler.

Aroma is clove, banana, doughy yeast, tropical bubblegum, banana custard, creamy, and wheaty. One of the best smelling hef's or wheat's I've come across. No joke.

Then I taste this bitch. Damn is this creamy. One of the creamiest beers I've had and that's saying a lot given all the milk and oatmeal stouts I've had. But more on that when I get to the mouthfeel. Flavors are accentuated and potent, very much Americanized yet also traditional. Big banana, clove, banana/tropical bubblegum, cream of wheat, papaya, and a touch of nutmeg. I've had hef's that display that bubblegum like character but this takes it to a whole other level.

Mouthfeel is where this shines even more. Super creamy, do I detect oats? Will have to read up and see. Heavier side of light body, slightly above medium carbonation, and clean fruity, spicy finish. But did I mention it's creamy? Wow, floats on the tongue.

I have to give a big thanks to Isaac, I guy I'd never met before, who brought this down as an extra as part of a big trade. This lives up to the hype and in my case exceeds it. This has sparked a new passion in my beer life. Sad that this is not available locally. A masterfully brewed hefeweizen. A beer not to be missed if in Texas.
