Opaque straw color. Rocky white head.
Nose has a lot of citrus and fresh bread aromas. Very nice.
On the palate a pleasant, dry wheat cracker taste at first followed by faint banana and some clove. I think the wheat is doing more in this beer than the yeast does, or the yeast should I guess (the nice banana clove). But still, a very impressive beer.
Body is medium, perhaps on the full side for a hefe. Definitely thicker than most weizens, and so I'd say a tad less on the drinkability scale. On a hot summer day this thirst quencher will fill you up quickly.

Appearance: light gold to bronze color slightly murky but deceptive to the naked eye
Smell: as indicated I could smell some banana and some light citrus in the aroma
Taste: Had a slight malty flavor and light bitterness from the hops, I had a hint of banana and citrus when it hit the back of my throat as well. I only had a light bitter aftertaste however it was very light and doesnt bother me for a hefe
Mouthfeel: The mouthfeel was actually surprising I had little after taste and was easy for me to drink down compared to other hefes I have had. It was smooth and light.
Overall: Conclusion I find that this is a perfect summertime Hefe to drink when you want a light alcohol content with smooth wheat based hefe and will guarantee not to make you feel like you have a sour mouth or bad after taste like most all day drinking brews have. I recommend however if you drink this brew for a all day summertime type day pair it with some cheese like feta and some unsalted crackers to keep the flavor fresh in your mouth
*Recommended Brew for Summertime
