Poured out a hazy, straw-yellow color with a small, white head of foam. It smelled of cloves, banana and wheat. Nice sweet wheat flavor with a spicy kick.

22 oz. Bomber

Pours a pretty nice yellowish color, nice carbonation, with a pretty nice one-finger off-white head, which leaves some sticky lacing behind. The nose is malty, yeasty, with some banana/clove, wheaty. The taste is malty, yeasty, banana/clove, wheat. Medium body. Overall, a pretty tasty brew.

A-Poured into a weizen glass, we have a beer with a finger of white tight bubbled foam with little lacing and no staying power atop a clear straw yellow appearance with a light green tint.
S-Nice bready malt with a fair amount of clove-y phenols. Light on the banana ester character but it's there too.
T-Nice malty bready quality. Not as much phenolic, spicy, yeasty flavor here but a pretty clean flavor profile.
M-A bit low on carbonation for the style. Low to moderate body, not very silky with a clean finish.
O-A bit of a boring hefe. Easy drinker but nothing stands out. I like it but there are many better options out there.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Look: One finger of fairly creamy white head dissipates pretty quickly. No carbonation. Hazy pale straw in color. No lacing.

Smell: Heavy banana and clove esters. Light wheat and even lighter lemon.

Taste: Even better than the nose. Near perfect balance of wheat, citrus, and yeasty esters. Ever so tart.

Feel: Light body. Light carbonation. Pretty dry finish.

Overall. Pretty good complexity and great balance. Great for the price, too. If Hef's give you a woody, this is a great one to pick up.

Pours a hazy, straw color. 1/3 inch head of a white color. Decent retention and decent lacing. Smells of sweet malt, strong wheat, slight pale malt, hint of hop, hint of clove, slight citrus, and slight yeast. Fits the style of a Hefeweizen. Mouth feel is sharp and clean, with a high carbonation level. Tastes of wheat, pale malt, slight sweet malt, clove, hint of citrus, slight hops, and yeast. Overall, weak appearance, but good aroma, body, and blend. Also, a good complexity level to both aroma and body.

Not a very good hefe. Very week and minimal flavor.
