2.3/5  rDev -39.3%

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.

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.

Poured on-tap at the Tampa Bay Brewing Co brewery in Ybor City. The beer was served in a pint glass, and it is an opaque, pale, creamy yellow coloring with plenty of sediment and a thin film of head that clings well to the glass. The beer has a light nose that is bready and slightly clove spiced. Flavors are heavy floral and lemon tart that is so strong it's almost syrupy. Tartness becomes bitter on the aftertaste; almost astringent. The body is pretty smooth to begin with, but finishes with a spicy, crisp, dry bite.

Enjoyed on-tap at the brewpub. Above-average, creamy mouthfeel, a lacey hefy with a wheat aroma. Cloudy bananna colour. Cloves. Suitable carbonation, though it is above average.High in pilsner malt. This batch listed at 5.2%. A sourness though really sweetened with sugar, malt.

Yellow with hints of orange throughout. White head drops to a film.
Smell is spice, wheat, citrus(orange), clove and cinnamon.
Taste is clove and other spices I could not separate, wheat, malt.
A smooth brew with a decent body, nice light effervescence. A good beer and well received on a typical Florida summer early evening (4/30/07).

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.

As expected, it was very hot & humid in Tampa (early August). After walking around Ybor a bit, I was ready for a refreshing beer.

This was served in standard shaker oint, It is a hazy dark yellow with a bone white head.

It has a big banana nose with some clove and allspice in the background.

Wow, lots of spice in the taste. I like the clove, pepper and allspice. It overpowers the grains. Maybe a bit unbalanced, but still tasty.

The mouth is slick and slightly oily.

I like the amped up spices, but it is a one and done for me.
