2.3/5  rDev -39.9%
look: 2 | smell: 2 | taste: 2 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Aroma: pungent banana (too much to be only yeast oriented... did they supplement this with banana extract?), some breadiness, some clove

Appearance: straw color, reasonably cloudy. Despite the 60% wheat malt content it had LOW head retention (even with a dirty glass, it should have held up better). The bartender served this with a lemon wedge stuck on the glass... that's their practice, I guess... I removed it as soon as he put the beer down in front of me.

Flavor: Bananas and... mustard?!? That was my initial sense, really (and I wasn't even eating anything, let alone mustardy). Bananas and mustard slathered on fresh, peasant bread and sprinkled with some lemon juice. Has a tart, dry finish.

Mouthfeel: light-bodied and tight, spritzy carbonation.

If you've never tasted anything from this brewery, try something besides this one. I tried the casked One Night Stand Pale Ale and was happy with it.

Had a pint with dinner at the Tampa Bay Brewing Co. brew pub in Ybor City FL. Served in a chilled pint glass as a slightly hazy light gold color. Good size delicately bubbly white head with some spotty lacing.

Aroma is great. has it all....astringent, bananas, cloves, a little lemon, mild wheat bitterness.

Taste is good, but no match for the promise of that smell. Some hefe aspects, but it is more lemon zest and wheat without much of the complexity the other flavors could bring. This is still a tasty beer but not a great hefeweizen.

Mouthfeel is a hair light but the beer is still crisp and inviting.

I enjoyed it with food on a warm Tampa December night. I would enjoy several of these on a hot night.

First had: on tap at the brewpub in Tampa

Somewhat hazy pour, banana yellow, with a small white head that retained well and left a bit of lacing on the glass. Usual aroma suspects: wheat, banana, clove, all in light quantities, but nothing really "off." Similar in the taste, wheat, banana, clove, light citrus notes, sugar sweetness. Light body, fairly drinkable, not great, but not too bad overall, and one of the better brews I had at TBBC.

4.38/5  rDev +14.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Excellent, refreshing example of a hefeweizen. Hazy, pale golden color. Slight bit of sediment as expected. Creamy two finger head that fades quickly but leaves sea foam lacing.

Fresh lemon zest floats from a bready background with hints of black pepper and clove. Fruity notes with faint bannana hints.

The flavor is bready, grainy, and earthy with spicy notes of black pepper, clove and ginger. Bright fruit notes of lemon with bubblegum hints.

Crisp, thin, light, grainy and refreshing like a hefeweizen should be.

Overall, an excellent, refreshing example of the style.
