Very disappointed with this brew. Taste and aroma were akin to dish soap laced with Pine-Sol. I would sometime like to try this one as a draught, just to compare bottle and tap. Perhaps the 12oz bottle I I sampled was off. I am a huge fan of hops, but just seems that something went wrong with this one. Would be willing to try again, but at this point, I would hardly recommend this beer.

look: 3.25 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Served in pint glass around 45 degrees

Appearance: nice golden color with 2 finger head that stayed through out. nice lacing.

Smell: This is where I am confused. I got a hefe character but there was some melon sweetness with some malt. Huh? Is this a hefe or this an ale? Banana, clove

Taste: clean with more banana coming through with a dry finish.

Mouthfeel: good carbonation medium bodied.

Overall: Very disappointing as I did not get any ale character. If this was labeled as a german hefe, I would have given it high marks because it drunk like one. Won't get again.

Bottle. Pours a hazy darker yellow color with ginormously thick white head on it. Nose is a little hard to get at with the huge head, but I can get some of the spice elements to it. Taste has the same bit of spiciness to it, and ends up being just a tad sour and dry. Nothing special to me.

On tap

A: poured pale golden in color with white small head

S: a little fruity and kind of like a perfume

T: first tastes of banana, then herbal, than clove. Slight bitterness from the hops

M: acidic, carbonated

Overall: it's a pretty good brew. Interesting flavors, but a bit confusing
