Opaque golden colour. Smells of the citrus hops you get when you taste. Hop taste is lemon and grapefruit, no pine. Balanced flavor of sugar cookie, bread, and lemon Girl Scout cookie. Mouthfeel has substance without being thick, perfect for the style. Well done, Mr. Grossman!

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.
