4.38/5 rDev +3.8%
Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a tall New Glarus Signature Pilsner Glass.
Appearance: Pours a hazy yellowish golden orange with a lot of bubbles. Huge five finger white head with decent retention. Leaves a good amount of lacing on the glass.
Smell: A sweet and fruity wheat driven aroma with some good spice hints. Lots of wheat with some clove, pepper, and cinnamon spices. Huge aroma of bananas all around. Bready pale malts with hints of biscuit, cereal grains, straw, and yeast. Subtle citrus orange and lemon hints. Also some bubblegum hints and honey sweetness. Earthy and floral hints of hops in the background. A really nice Hefeweizen aroma.
Taste: Like the aroma hints, a big wheat and spice driven taste with lots of banana esters. Big taste of wheat upfront. Good mix of clove, pepper, and cinnamon spices. Big taste of bananas throughout as well as some bubblegum. Also some fruit notes of citrus orange and lemon. Bready pale malts with notes of biscuit, cereal grains, yeast, and straw. Some sweet honey like notes. Decent backing of earthy and floral hops towards the finish. Very wheat and banana forward. Pretty good taste.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Creamy, crisp, and pretty smooth. Starts sweet and finishes fairly dry.
Overall: A very good American take on the Hefeweizen style. Very good banana fruit flavors and spice. One of the better non- German versions.

Pours straw in color with a 2 finger white head that has decent retention. Slight hazyness to it typical to hefes
Nose has all the normal players, banana clove esters with a hint of spice and tartness similar to that of lemon zest. Subtle wheat throughout the brew.
Wheat and lemon zest are first to hit the palate and fade into a large profile of the yeasty esters. A big banana flavor with hints of clove and spices in the finish. Super tastey and bold hefe.
Nice big carbonation leaves this brew really drinkable and give the light feel a nice body.
Overall great hefe
