On-tap at Cambridge Brewing Company in Cambridge, Massachusetts.

A- Hazy straw-yellow body. Two finger white head with good retention. Lots of lacing. Typical hefeweizen appearance.

S- Lots of cloves and spices, some banana, no bubble gum. Wheat, pale malt, noble hops. Smells promising.

F- Very good flavour profile with wheat, pale malt breadiness, distinct noble hops and of course the spices from the yeast. Banana, cloves, not much bubble gum. Very good.

M- Medium body, smooth and rich with a nice effervescence. Very easy to drink and very refreshing.

O- Refreshing hefeweizen that hit the spot on a humid, warm day like today. Drinking it outside at the CBC outdoor area made it even better.

A - On tap at Union Street in Newton Centre. Cloudy, but not enough so to prevent someone from seeing through it. Deep gold, hint of orange. The beer arrived with no head, and left no lacing on the glass. Makes me question the glass, given what other users have posted. Light visible carbonation.

S - I was outside and the beer was served in a large pint glass. Not the best. Basically stayed with my overall score for this. Really couldn't tell.

T - Nice light flavors, but there was some kind of underlying sourness that I didn't really like.

M - Really nice. The carbonation worked well here. Very pillowy feel.

O - I question the beer I was served. Lines not clean? Something off with the glass? Don't know. The beer was nice, and I would certainly try it again given the opportunity, but there are still a few on my list ahead of this one.

*Review taken from Tastingnotes, July 15th of last year

I had this on tap at Legal Harborside. I was completely blown away, possibly the best Hefeweizen I've had. Beautiful color, a darker golden color, cloudy as you might expect. Great soft head at the top leaving nice lacing on the glass. Perfect balance of banana, spice, and cloves in both the aroma and flavor. Awesome, almost creamy moutfeel. Absolutely worth a try, if this is on tap on the right kind of day, I will most certainly be ordering it.

@ the brewpub.

Translucent, dark hay color with a hearty dish soap head. Big lacey patch down the middle of my glass like a Christmas tree.

Smells liek clove and just ripe, partially green banana. Tastes like clove and just ripe, partially green banana. Spritzy. There's a soapy residue that coats my mouth after each sip that I'm not a fan of.
