4.15/5  rDev +14.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Had on tap.

A- Pours a cloudy golden yellow color. Half finger white head that dies rather quickly. Some light lacing left on the glass as I drink it down.

S- This one stayed pretty close I might say. Nice banana and clove all over the nose. There was some light wheaty bready notes sprinkled in a citrus overtone. Nothing over the top but enough to make you want to taste it.

T- Light bready wheat upfront to this. The middle had the banana and clove shine through. Light citrus and more wheaty notes on the backend. Pretty straight forward to what the aroma was. No off flavors that I have seen other people talk about.

M- Medium mouthfeel. Carbonation was a little off I thought. Wheat and citrus left on the palate with some banana and clove in the ending mixed with a sweet alcohol. Flavors were balanced I thought for the style. Light drying on the palate.

D- This was a very drinkable Hefe. Not the best I have tried by far but this one made me go back for more. A nice summertime beer that even BMC drinkers could sink their teeth and pocketbooks into.

Serving type: on-tap

Smell: I got a lot of banana in the smell.

Taste: A delicious sweetness. I get a lot of banana and vanilla notes. Very tasty.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Review from notes.

Appearance: Pale cloudy yellow color, decent white head, some lacing

Smell: Banana and clove yeast, bready, and some fuit

Taste: Wheat, spice, lemon, bread, banana, and yeast

Mouthfeel: Medium body, full carbonation

Overall: Not a bad Hefeweizen, but not a standout for the style. Good if you are in the mood for one.

Serving type: on-tap
