Picked this up in New England after the EBF. I like Left Hand's other offerings (and yes, I'm left handed too!), so I anticipated enjoying this offering when I finally got around to it. I can honestly say that it's very unique, and quite a brew to drink - my expectations were met and exceeded!

This beer poured like ginger ale - between the carbonation, color, and near lack of head. I didn't mind the greenish tint to it so much, and the aroma was that of German or Bavarian Hefe Weizen. Lots of straw, grass, and wheat up front, with the lightness that I'd expect. Then, it transitioned wonderfully to the back. The cloves and grass kicked in with an amazing, soothing banana backbone to it. It was light, fruity, and just wonderful in terms of it's transition and lingering ablitity. I never had anything so complex, and yet simply enjoyable at the same time. Quite an achievement!

This beer was a pleasure to drink, pure and simple. Almost no bitterness, no heavy tones, and no rough transitions made it enjoyable sip after sip. I had fun exploring it's depths and notes, and wish that more Left Hand offerings were available around here. Certainly worth a try!
