Sunshine yellow with slight haze, steady stream of bubbles, and lumpy off white head that fades to film.
Big lemon cookie and banana nose - no clove.
Breadstick malts with slight toast then banana and melon following by slight grassy hop finish. Sweetens as it warms.
Starfruit finish and clean, slightly clovey linger.
Light, creamy, clingy but dry.
As one of America's Ur beers, totally stands up. Favors the fruit, but never cloying, though I can't say I get any Cascade. What it lacks in depth it makes up for in balance and could be an all-day summer beer.
Unfortunately, a few other reviews rightly point out that this is far more an American Wheat than a classic hefe, especially for the total lack of clove, so I have to knock a few points off to rate to style
Still a perennial favorite.
