Served in a Lagunitas mason jar.

Revisiting this guy for the sake of memory comparison and to actually formally review it. It's been a while. It pours a mostly clear gold topped by an active column of white foam. The nose comprises heavy clove, banana, and a touch of dry wheat. The taste brings in more of the same, but the clove is toned-down to a sensible level, and some orange zest peeks its way in as well. The body is a light medium, with a moderate carbonation and a fluid feel. Overall, a solid hefe, one that's too spicy on the nose and too bubbly for my liking, but one that's still fairly drinkable.

Top notch Wheat beer.

I'm not a big fan of banana flavor, unless I'm just eating a banana.
But you get a hint of banana in this beer and it REALLY works.
Strong but not overpowering flavors set this one apart from other wheat beers.

Beautiful frothy head.
