The beer pours hazy and gold with an excellent two finger soft white head that lasts and leaves pretty cool lacing patterns on the glass.

The aromas are just like the description of a hefeweizen with notes of banana, bubblegum, and apple floating above a nice pale malt sweetness. This bottle has a hint of skunk aroma to it as well and I believe that to be not of the breweries fault, but the bottle may be old, but it's hard to tell as the date has been worn off. A few points will have to be deducted though. I have had this on tap and it does not have the skunk aroma.

The beer starts off light and pale malt sweet with light phenolic flavours of bubblegum and tart apple only very faint and the beer then smooths out with a noticeable wheat presence and then finally takes on some very nice mild hop bitterness, only VERY mild and spicy. Some skunk presence as my last burp can attest to.

The mouthfeel is a bit thin, not overly so, which makes it highly sessionable, but it seems a little light. The carbonation is lively but when the wheat comes through about mid-way on the palate, the carbonation mellows. The beer goes through some nice transformations!

Overall I am going to say that this beer's complexity is really neat! It all works well and goes through a pretty cool transition. The only complaint towards the beer is that it is a little thin and light in mouthfeel. The skunk flavour is a big NO-NO but not this beer's fault. AND it's not overt so it's actually not all that detracting. Would I recommend this beer? Hell YES! Especially for summer! 4 out of 5 for this beauty!

Bottled 032613

A: Pours a hazy straw yellow color with 2 fingers of fizzy white head that quickly settled to a thin cap

S: Very wheaty with big notes of banana and clove. Get some fruitiness behind that, but the wheat, banana, and clove dominate

T: Again, very wheaty with banana and clove. Light spicy phenols in there to mix things up. Get some yeasty esters as well. Finishes with chalky yeast and wheat

M: Light-medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Chalky

O: A very solid American hefe. Plenty of wheat, banana, clove, and chalky yeast to go around. Nice and easy to drink at 4.8% as well

I enjoyed this on-tap yesterday at Granary Tavern. The beer had an unfiltered hazy yellow-ish gold appearance to it with a constrained white fluffy head. The aroma had some cloves and spice to it, but I didn't get really much for fruit out of the aroma or taste as I've seen with other hefeweizens. Lighter mouthfeel as you'd hope for and expect for a warm weather beer.
