3.1/5  rDev -16.7%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

This is a rather average beer all the way across the board. A cloudy, yellow-straw appearance that is very cloudy. No head to speak of and and no lacing on the top - standard fare for light Hefes.

Plenty of bananas, bubblegum, and cloves in the nose. Smells very refreshing.

Taste is a bit watery and light around the edges - overpowering banana bread taste. The spices are too weak - if they had cranked these up a bit it might have balanced out the fruity character of the bananas. I know it's a Hefe and supposed to be light, but just not enough punch packed in this nondescript summer brew. Might re-visit this again in the summer, but just too many other Hefes that beat this hands down.

3.63/5  rDev -2.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A - Pours a nice rich yellow color. Cloudy and unfiltered with a nice white head. Barely any lacing. 4.0

S - Nice fruity smell with hints of orange, apple, bubblegum, and banana. 4.0

T - Sweet and slightly spicy, with hints of clove at the beginning. Slightly bitter and hoppy at the end. Fairly balanced but a bit watery in the middle...it's hard to describe what it's missing, but it's definitely noticeable. 3.5

M - Smooth with a slight carbonation tingle. I wish there was a bit more carbonation or spiciness, though I can't say exactly what is missing. The mouthfeel is just a bit too mild. 3.5

O - Troegs' DreamWeaver is a decently built Hefeweizen. It's incredibly drinkable and nice to look at. The flavor is a bit on the light side, as well as the mouthfeel. I could drink pint after pint of this beer easily, but on its own at a beer tasting I think it wouldn't stand out as much as some other beers. 3.5
