This beer has the look of a hef, straw, opaque and with little head. It got the light scent of a wheat hef also with that Belgian yeasty scent coming through(very standard smelling). Hey wait a sec, this has got a pretty darn good flavor, everything blends well but I also get a good amount of depth, there's pepper, some sweetness, some clove/banana notes...everything is well done in the taste department(top notch here) Feel is also dead on for this beer, good carbonation.

Pours a hazy gold with almost no head. Smells of banana esters, wheat malts, and cloves. Tastes of sweet banana esters, cloves, wheat malts, and finishes with banana bread. Medium in body and carbonation. Overall a great hefe.

Hazy yellow appearance. Two finger white head. Fruity esters predominate, and unfortunately for me, too strong of a banana flavor. Dry wheat backbone.

This brew is more similar to a German hefeweizen when it comes to taste. A bit on the sweet side with banana notes but not at all lacking in a little bit of clove as well. Light bodied and easy drinking. I like to let the bottle sit out for a few minutes before pouring into the glass to bring oit some of the flavors. Very good beer, especially if you like the style.

Cloudy yellow gold.aroma was definitely wheat with a bit of Clove and banana. Nice feel to this beer, could drink a few of these in one evening. Taste was slightly sweet wheat,spice/clove,and banana. This was a new style for me and I really enjoyed it,would purchase this beer again.

Draft at the hw bowl. Decent simple mild heif, but was looking for a little more "bite".

Pours a solid gold with a persistent head
Smell is of malt and vinegar
Taste is wild, there's some things I can't identify here
This brew is interesting and I'd like to find a fresher one

I'm not a big wheat beer fan, but this is ok. On a hot day, extremely cold, I could definitely down a couple.
