I went on a Hefeweizen tirade for many weeks. This one is a little disappointing as it doesn't taste of a Hefeweizen one bit. It has a mid body Hefeweizen feel but only after an overly hoppy attack that you don't expect. If you're in the Hef game for a mellow, wheat feel-this beer will take you off guard.

A - Pours a nice golden yellow color, cloudy due to roused yeast, and a creamy white head.
S - Strong smell of bananas, slight bubblegum and clove, but could use more. Also slight rubber-like aroma.
T - The taste was a bit of a let down, the banana dominates and is accompanied by a slight soapy flavor.
M - Good carbonation and a nice creamy body. Good for style.
Overall, I was not impressed by this beer. The flavor profile was too estery and not enough phenolic to back it up.

Poured into a Samuel Smith pint glass on 11/30/11
Bottled July 2011
Clear, pale light straw color. Lots of cling to the inside of the glass briefly. Two fingers of porous foam condense to 1/4th inch and thins out to nothing from there. No lace.
Pleasant enough aroma of prairie grass, clove, tangy wheat, ripe apple and banana. Yeast overtones emerge periodically and there's a slight dirtiness underneath. Flavor-wise there is a pretty strong grassy hop kick that seems out of place, especially paired with high carbonation found here (the feel pushes well past "crisp" and gets right to "sharp"). Clove, tangy apple and banana, too. Interestingly enough, the wheat seems subdued; I'd appreciate more of it. Finishes dry and grassy. It has a weird coating feel, too.
Though not an altogether reprehensible beer, I think it falls pretty far from the style mark. Even labeled as an American Pale Wheat it would still need several fine tunings to make it stand out.

Huge thanks to a fellow like minded ticker drabmuh for sending this extra. Another state crossed off the tick list.
A: Slightly cloudy bright yellow. Huge three fingers of stark white head. No lace but a solid cap remains.
S: Lots of citrus with a mix of clove, banana, wheat and mily acidity.
T: Faint citrus and pale wheat. Not much else. Very watered down tasting.
M: Light body with soft carbonation.
D: Overall a less than stellar hefe. Rather forgettable.

2.95/5 rDev -20.3%
Appearance: Arrives at the bar with a cloudy golden color and a very modest head that leaves virtually no lacing despite a vigorous swirl
Smell: Oooh, this is painful to report but it smells like wet woolen socks
Taste: Starts out with a tart yeasty profile up front with subtle undertones of banana and cloves; after the swallow, the tartness jumps to the forefront
Mouthfeel: Light body with prickly carbonation
Drinkability: I hate to knock a local brewery but this one lacks the range of flavors I expect in a hefe; the banana and clove flavors are way too restrained and the tartness predominates where it ought to complement
