4.3/5 rDev +12.3%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25
Appearance: Pours a cloudy honey color with a whipped egg white head that is adequate but not quite up to the German standard; a few strand of lace cling to the side of the glass
Smell: Banana bread with a strong clove and pepper aspect
Taste: Banana bread up front - nothing surprising here; but in the middle there is an explosion of clove, vanilla and pepper spice that continues into the finish
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied but not quite creamy enough; moderate to high carbonation
Overall: Been looking to try this one for a while now and the persistence has finally paid off; the spice kick on this beer is non-traditional but a great American angle on the style
Thanks, copslovebeer, for the opportunity

Picked up a 12er of this with a BB date of 092913, enjoyed a couple bottles of this, time for a review.
A-Poured into a tall pilsener glass this beer explodes into a white fluffy heady beast with big time staying power and lacing. Light golden in color, slightly hazy with suspended yeast with lots of small bubbles.
S-Estery banana aroma is strongest with a weak phenolic clove character. Plenty of bready, grainy wheat aroma. Very nice.
T-The taste is more balanced between the banana and clove character with a fairly strong bready wheat taste. A weak bitter hoppy finish.
M-Medium bodied with a soft taste. The carbonation is restrained. Slight creaminess with a bit of a lingering finish.
O-A solid hefe. Nice characteristic appearance and flavor with a nice balance of flavors. Would like a cleaner finish but an enjoyable brew.
