look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4 | overall: 5

12 OZ. Bottle poured into a pint glass:

A: Pours golden and hazy with a nice thick white head. Lots of carbonation bubbles rising to the top.

S: Bananas, cloves and wheat, a great trifecta of aromas. Bananas less subtle than the clove but tied in nicely with the wheat.

T: Crisp and clean. Clove flavor really comes to the front more than any thing else, IMO. Bananas and cinnamon meld together to round out a very balanced beer. Simple yet complex in that it makes my mouth believe it is tasting more than there is in there.

M: Light and bubbly. Slightly sticky retention on my lips and tongue leeaves a nice residual effect for the next sip to wash over.

D: I could drink this beer easily everyday, if only I could get my hands on more. I would make it point to stock up on this and maybe make it my go to beer, alas not available in our great state of Illinois without a road trip!!

Overall, this is a fantastic beer from a great brewing co. Hefeweizen made the way it should be, simple and very drinkable yet interesting enough to keep you coming back for more. Highly reccommended.

A. Cloudy golden orange in color. 2 fingers of creamy white head that sits like a pillow on the beer. Some lacing but not as much as I'd expect given the head. None the less, this looks great

S. Clove, banana and bubble gum. Lots of the Belgian ester yeast

T. Strong taste of over-ripe banana. Clove spice. Bubble gum is present though not as much as the nose would suggest.

M. Light to medium body. Creamy mouth feel with the slightest alcohol tinge on the back end. dry finish

O. Normally I don't care for hefes but this one is quite tasty. I could see myself buying a 6 pack to enjoy in the summer heat.

this thing smells like grapes. a little sourdough bread smell too.

has a good classic german wheat beer taste. a little bit sweet. but it has some bruised fruit taste.

easy to drink like most wheat beers , but very filling. a satisfying beer . drink it on an empty stomach.
