Note: This review was a re-post from my former account, jmkratt, which was hacked and I lost all my reviews...sorry for the redundancy.

Poured from a 22 oz. bomber to pint glass the day the bottles hit the shelf!

A- Pours a hazy golden/grainy color with a nice 2 fingers worth of thick white head. Good retention with nice lacing.

S- A very pleasant balance of a mild banana aroma mixed with a slight bubble gum spicy note. Not overwhelming at all.

T/M- The beer starts with a fair amount of the yeast characteristics with the banana and bubble gum but quickly fades into a gentle balance of malty sweetness and almost citrusy flavors. The beer finishes smooth and delicate. Very good. Light body with a nice creamy mouthfeel.

D- Very much so.

Overall, this is the best Hefeweizen I've had to date. Not particularly fond of the style but this beer is a winner. I will highly recommend and purchase again.

The label mentions this beer is now known as the Dry Dock Hefeweizen.

look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Pours a cloudy pale golden yellow color with straw/hay colored hues and a half finger frothy white head that quickly fades into a thin ring. Minimal lacing left behind.

Slightly zesty, peppery aroma with hints of clove, bready yeast, banana and citrus rind.

Fuller boded than expected with a luscious bready yeast character that adds fullness and complexity. Huge banana presence that slightly overpowers the pepper and clove notes. Not much citrus flavor which is a disappointment but it's pretty easy to drink, especially during the warmer months.
