4.46/5  rDev +9.9%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Quite cloudy. Orangish yellow. A nice foam head quickly dissipates into a paper-thin top.
Smell: Banana and bubblegum.
Taste: Banana, bugglegum, and wheat. Some tartness.
Mouthfeel: Good carbonation and smooth at the same time.

This is such an excellent Hefe. It certainly sets a great standard for this style. The banana hits you right away with the smell, and follows up with the same in the taste. The tartness and banana linger after the swallow. There's really nothing negative to be said. It has that traditional Hefe taste of banana and wheat, but pulls it off so well that it really sets itself apart from most of the rest. I would definitely get this again.

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

Kinda yellow and hazy, good head, rising bubbles, ample lace.

Aroma and flavor are full of typically hefe stuff: cloves, banana, spices, bubblegum, citrus, yeast. Quite typically hef, but to be more specific, it's more likely to set the standard than simply be listed as typical of the style.

Body is quite thick, smoothly carbonated, yet easy drinking.

Definitely worth the cost of the sixer. A must try for hefe fans.
