3.35/5  rDev -12.3%

On tap at Moat Mountain - poured into a pint glass.

A - Cloudy straw yellow with one finger of fluffy white head.

S - Very aromatic. Banana, clove and bread. Little bits of citrus. Yeast is very present.

T - If you found this beer in Donkey Kong, you'd probably get another life. It has THAT much banana in it. Not sure what kind of yeast they're using to get this but it was too much for me. Other characteristics typical of Bavarian style hefeweizen - slight tart, clove, wheat bread, bits of lemon.

M - Medium to full bodied, nice chewy character with medium carbonation.

D - I can see how someone would love this beer. It has TONS of flavor. Unfortunately I just didn't really care for the characteristics of said flavor.

On-Tap in a sample glass.

Appearance: Orange-yellow with a cloudy haze. Thin white head.

Smell: Sweet smelling with wheat.

Mouthfeel/Taste: Smooth medium to light bodied. Typical taste of a hefenweizen, sweet tasting with wheat.

Overall: Refreshing brew, I would have it again.

Had on tap at Flatbread in North Conway.

A: Served in a pint glass, the beer was a hazy golden color with no head or lacing.

S: Basic hefeweizen aroma, some wheat, a bit of banana, and faint spices.

T: Similar to the aroma, some banana, wheat, a bit of faint earthy hops and some spices - black pepper and coriander.

O: A decent hefe, not bad, but not something I am clamoring to get again.

Yellow amber color and a healthy and loose white head rises fast with vigor and falls slow. She stays around without rambling too fast.

The aroma is classic hefe with sour and herbal green veggies maybe too much sour that seems like vinigar. Green banana and spices with mildly sweet red fruits too.

The flavor brings a vinegar and herbal banana flavor from the yeast and hops. Corriander with cloves and a sweet fruity malt all in decent balance. Feels lush slightly dry and refreshing.

This traveled well to my house of more than 60 miles away combating seasonal potholes and Tiberius bumps along the way so there's bonus points for that.

3.63/5  rDev -5%

Pours a cloudy dark orange-tan, topped with a two finger white head. Leaves behind webs of lacing.
Yeasty aroma, banana, clove, herbs and a touch of vanilla, but mainly clove.
A bit sweet, clove again is strong in the taste, banana, wheat and grass round it out.
Light bodied, and easy to drink, but the clove got to be too much for me.

3.7/5  rDev -3.1%

Cloudy, lemon custard yellow. Came adorned with a thin skim ring. I've always had presentation problems here and I don't know if it's the brewer or that the bartender's just don't know how to pour a beer here but I'm going to go with that latter.

Aroma as a nice wheat character that reminds me of eggs and hash. Mild acidic twang. Tastes of light lemon (I don't know if it was supposed to be there or if it dripped in from the lemon that was rimmed on my glass) and light cloves. No banana though which I was hoping for.

Kind of a mix of an American and German wheat. It has the light, airy character of an American wheat but the subtle clove of a German heff. Nice work.

Moat Mountain is one of NH's most underrated breweries by the way.

3.73/5  rDev -2.4%

Poured on-tap at the brewery and served in a tumbler pint, the beer is a pale, unfiltered yellow-brown coloring with not a lot of head on the surface. Citrus and bready blend on the nose, with a slight spicing to it. The flavors are clove and banana initially, with a citrus blending at the end. The beer is kept light with the carbonation, giving the brew a frothy, light mouthfeel at the end. Tangy, sweet aftertaste. This is a decent brew.

Nice golden and unfiltered appearance as you'd expect from the style. Mildly sweet aroma that was pretty appealing. Sweet and wheaty in taste that fades away from the taste buds in a timely manner. Pretty much everything you'd expect from the style but nothing that takes it to another level. Solid all around.
