at the TH Tap, into the appropriate glassware, nice thick and tight head and decent retention, not a lot of lacing, a little more amber in color than I expected. Lots of clove, wheat and a kiss of honey but not a lot of complexity, and not much banana or any other fruity esters. On the taste, it is very satisfying, with what the nose promises but better, and a little more fruit (both banana and a little citrus). Cloves really dominate, though. Body is kind of substantial and mouthful is smooth but not as dry or zesty on the finish as I wished. A fairly good version of a hefe...I'd definitely be happy to drink it again.

Pours like a hefeweizen ought to - pale, cloudy orange body topped with a nice dose of white foam that leaves a distinct set of lace after each sip.

A bit one dimensional on the nose... it's all about dat malted wheat. There's a bit of honey and sweet yeast in the mix as well.

Creamy wheat flavors blend with clove, semi-sweet honey, a little citrus maybe?

It's an easy drinking beer, no doubt. I'ma make this growler my bitch.
