Got this single at Party Source.
12 oz. bottle poured in a standard pint glass. Bottled 092308.
Pours a hazy straw yellow with a one finger white head that quickly falls to a thin layer of foam. A decent amount of sticky lace remains on the sides of the glass. Smell has a pleasant combination of clove, banana, and some light citrus hops. A good dose of yeasty bread tickles the nose as well. A very refreshing aroma. Taste begins with spicy lemongrass and banana bread. Light citrus hops midway with a dash of fresh ground pepper. A bit of a watered down aftertaste, but what's there is mostly clove and wheat. A very light body with a crisp feel and aggressive carbonation. Definitely a session beer and glad to see they make it year round. But come summer, I'm grabbing a Southern Tier Hop Sun instead, just a hoppier version of the style.

Poured from the bottle into a wheat ale glass.
Light orange, to dark lemon yellow body, slightly lighter and brighter towards the bottom of the glass. Head makes about three fleeting fingers of soapy white head to fall and quickly disappear into a good thick collar, but thin puck.
Standard hefe nose on the bouquet, but hints with much more strange peanut butter like yeast esters. Faint clove, little malt wheat chewy character, and no sense of sweetness. THere is a thick sweet peanut quality coming off this however, and a strange out there hint of nut and dry quality on the nose.
Palate hints toward hefe quality, but with spicier notes, and subdued classic hefe quality. Wet bodied with a lighter feel, and not sense of malt chewy character and depth. Almost peppery, near hot finish on the clove like ester front. Density really missing, and the bubblegum sweetness and where is the lemon.
It's an interesting take on the style, and comes off a bit strangely amped, but still a bit lifeless unfortunately. No regrets trying it though, and no harm either.
