I think at this point I just have to admit that I like Sprecher more than the average neckbeard up in this joint. This one had an appearance that lacked the wheat haze. Weird. Head was thin, aroma has plenty of the banana, bavarian, lemon feels.

Light body, easy to drink, low bitterness, high carbonation. I dig their 16 oz fat boy format.

8/3...cloudy fuzzy hazy, some foam remains. Classic hefe nose, banana and cloves. Strong banana in the taste too. Creamy smooth with a fast finish. Slight lemon in there too. Average hefe.

Pours a cloudy, pale yellow-orange with a quickly dissipating, thick, white head. Aromas lean toward bready clove with some orange zest. Flavors of clove, banana, wheat, and orange are very refreshing. The finish has a bit more clove than is desirable, and leaves a slightly unpleasant aftertaste. Feel is moderately light with a bit of carbonation. Overall, this is a solid, but not outstanding hefeweizen. Lots of flavor for a low ABV beer, and very bright and refreshing for warm weather.

A: Creamy golden and hazy
S: Bananas, sweetness, breads
T: light and somewhat thin compared the the smell. A nice slight bitter finish.
O: An excellent example of an American brewery making a weißbier (my phone has the font I couldn't resist sorry)
