Had on tap at the brewery in Ann Arbor

A-pours a cloudy, purely hazed golden yellow with a dense creamy white head.

S-the nose is earthy with some spicy clove, banana and a hint of lemon.

T-solid taste, earthy flavors with banana, lemon, pear, and some spicy clove in the back.

M-medium body, somewhat smooth, grainy in back, high carbonation giving a good crisp finish and a little prickly on the back of the throat.

D-straight forward hefe, decent with no glaring flaws. nothing spectacular but easy drinking and tasty.

Had this at the brewpub. Pours a hazy golden with fluffy white head. Aroma of big yeast, honey, banana, clove, pear. Light on the palate with lower carbonation that I would hope for the style--something I find with a lot of GP brews. The flavor is light banana, sweet honey, just a hint of yeast and very little spice. Overall not bad, and probably one of the better ones for me from these guys.

On tap at the brew pub as part of a sampler...Pours a cloudy light yellow, with a light white head...the aroma is super strong, a total clove bomb, way to much clove not enough of anything else. The taste is the same way, way too much clove.

If you love clove give this is a shot, otherwise skip as this is totally unbalanced.
