look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

A- Hazy yellow color with a good amount of head from the carbonation.

S- Smells like a wheat beer. Bready, malty, maybe a little banana and clove in there as well.

T- Bready malts up front. Love that taste. Minimal hop presence, great doughy presence. Nice dry finish that makes you crave the next sip.

M- Slightly thick or heavy, definitely carbonated.

O- Overall I thought this was a solid beer. I am a big wheat beer fan and allgash white is my go-to for the style and I would compare it to a slightly not-as-good version of that. A nice treat for me since we can't get it in CT. Would make a great summer day beer!

Two 12 oz bottles poured into a weizen glass.

A: Pours a hazy golden color. The head is a two finger white shade; a bit thinner looking than what I like out of my hefeweizens, but with nice retention. Not much lacing here.

S: This is heavy in banana esters. Huge whiffs of bubblegum and sweet vanilla hit my nose, as well as some general 'wheat' malts. I'm fairly impressed by the aroma here.

T: Initially, it starts off with fruity, with loads of banana and faint orange. Afterwards come notes of vanilla, wheat, and clove...it's quite vanilla forward, actually. A bit of hop bitterness builds up as more is consumed, suggesting decent layering/depth.

M: Soft and creamy at first, before developing into a dry, astringent feel. This also seems to bring out some hop flavors on the back end, as well. Carbonation is strong if not oppressive, and the drinkability is excellent thanks to the moderately light texture.

O: A great hefeweizen is worth its weight in ambergris, and this is certainly a great example of the style. This seems to have more complexity than others in the style, also - including the 1000 pound (and 1000 year old) gorilla-in-the-room from Weihenstephaner.

12 oz bottle from Trader's Joe. Pours deep golden with long lasting white head, a lot of lacing and carbonation. Aroma is of wheat malt, banana and yeast. Body is medium and crisp. Taste is similar to aroma. Finish is medium, somewhat sour. Good thirst quencher.
