4.45/5 rDev +19.3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
Appearance: Cloudy light golden color, didn't get much head from the draft pour, good lacing
Smell: Up front is the beautiful floral aroma of the Saaz hops, then you get some good banana, with cloves and spice in there as well.
Taste: Delicious wheat, banana, cloves, spices, some hoppiness, with a huge banana aftertaste. It was great.
Mouthfeel: A little bit of thickness, with crisp carbonation
Drinkability: A good session beer. Could drink this all day, and at 4.8% abv, I wouldn't get in trouble with it either.
Overall: Excellent. Had at Surf Taco in Jackson, NJ, and it was a good answer to the spiciness of my burrito. I was very impressed with it.
Serving type: on-tap

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.
