3.93/5 rDev +4.8%
Pours clear, a bit odd for a hefe. Where's the little yeasty bits? Anyway, a dark yellow in color with an explosion of white foam that nearly burst out of the glass. It settles to 1/2" relatively quickly and remains a thick film forever, leaving decent lace.
Smell is sweet, malty, wheat, citrus, spices. All balanced nicely, very nicely indeed.
Taste is a copy of the smell. Malt, a slightly syrupy sweetness, wheat, citrus, spice and some alcohol. Great balance.
Warming, medium plus body, light effervescence. Smooth, too. If the yeast had shown up in the glass, this would be one of the best wheats ever.

Pours amber with a quickly fading.
Nose shows big banana notes but also sweet malt and spicy hops. Nice malt character, suggesting at honey.
Not as good flavours, very little in the way of typical wheat beer characters, mainly just honey and spicy hops.
Body feels a bit watery.

A. It has a straw color, it is completely opaque, hazy. It has a small foamy white head with no head.
S. It has a very wheaty scent to it.
T/M. It has a strong grape and grassy taste. Wheaty with a hint of alcohol. It is a bit tart. A medium body.
O. It is just a bit too thick, but just a clusterfuck of flavors. It's not bad, it just feels like a well-made macro wheat.
