Bottled date was Nov 30 2011.
Appearance is a cloudy light gold to straw with a hefty white head. The head faded quickly, leaving very little lacing. Clove scents were prominent, along with some lemon, but there was also a bitter metallic scent that was a bit off-putting. Thankfully, the taste was much better - typical hefe flavors of banana and clove, and it had a nice bubble-gum sweetness that I really enjoy in a good hefe. Carbonation was high, typical for the style. This has to be on the short list of good American-brewed hefeweizens.

pils glass requested, into german mug as it'll have to do.
Nice bright golden color, big foamy head that is 3-fingers plus. Very creamy, slightly off white. Takes a while to settle down.
One whiff and I get a lot of honey/floral sweetness and some strong yeast notes.
Taste confirms. Mild banana and the yeast backs off a bit. Very mellow but enjoyable. Mildly grassy, some twinge of tart apple too. Pleasing finish.
A bit light for the style but pretty refreshing. I enjoyed this one.

A – Banana gold with a light haze. Almost no head.
S – Bubble gum, light sour apples, banana, and a lace of salad greens. Strange, but surprisingly pleasant.
T – Bright, prickly lemon acidity mellows into sweet banana, caramel, and Clementine. The finish is fantastic, and absolutely loaded with wheat.
M – Lively carbonation into a smooth, medium-full body. Sweet finish.
O – Refreshing with a great wheat character.

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.

Cloudy golden, with rather tame carbonation and head. Practically no lace at all.
Scent of bananas, clove, and some orange. Very good!
Taste is quite pleasant. I get a sweet rush up front, followed by a strong wheat and spice tanginess towards the finish. Very representative of the style.
A very well-done hefeweizen, and well worth a repeat purchase.
