Appearance

light yellow with an orange tint, cloudy as expected. good head retention, decent lacing

Smell

perfumy, estery, sweet, bananas and a slight detection of cloves comes to mind. also bubble gum and caramel malt in there

Taste

slight caramel malt, hardly any hops detectable, finishes with banana flavor. very pleasant

Mouthfeel

This was the best part about the beer. light, creamy, smooth, bready/biscuity, low carbonation.

Overall

this beer exceeded my expectations. very drinkable, very delicious. I would definitely buy it again.

Appearance:
Golden color, very cloudy. Good amount of carbonation rising. Nice frothy head.

Aroma:
Lots of pear in the aroma, I get some aporcot and a little banana. Some spices. Deep bready malt.

Taste/Finish/Body:
Deep fruity character up front, mostly pears, I get some aporcot and bananas with some touch of lemon. There some spices, nutmeg and cloves. Deep malt character, sweet, bready, doughy. Finish is dry, a little tart, yeasty. Body is chewy, a little creamy, crisp, refreshing, smooth, dry.

Overall:
It's a very nice Hefeweizen.
