Background: I went to the lazy bot brewing company's location in Everett as part of a groupon. My Brother and I tried a flight of 5 4 ounce portions of their various beers.. This is only my third beer tasting, so let that color your impression of this review.

Look: The beer poured a light golden color. Minor cloudiness was present, and since this was my first introduction to the style, I don't know how common it is. The head was barely visible by the time I got to it, even though it was only number two in the line. At home from a growler it pours a thick head that recedes quickly.

Smell: The smell of the beer is a pleasant banana like smell. Nice and fruity, with a little bit of yeast thrown in.

Taste: A pleasant fruity taste fills the mouth with this beer. A combination of slight banana, clove and citrus flavors that is easy to drink. No discernible bitterness in the beer really.

Feel: The beer is light, pleasant and carries a creamy feeling with it. Very drinkable with a light carbonation.

Overall : A tasty and drinkable beer and good beer to introduce people that don't like the bitterness of hops too.

I had this beer on tap in a pint glass at the Wedgwood Ale House in Seattle.

Appearance: cloudy golden hue with a thin layer of white foam due to pour. Not bad!

Smell: lightly wheaty and fruity with a little clove bite. Not bad.

Taste: lots of big banana and clove flavor; quite good on that account. There's a bit of an incongruent graininess which impacts the smoothness, but in general quite tasty.

Mouthfeel: medium light body with good carbonation and a decent creaminess.

Overall: a tasty and drinkable hefeweizen, especially for an American brew.

Served in bubble pint glass. Poured the expected golden yellow, not as cloudy as many of the style, with about an inch of white head that had medium dissipation and no lacing.

The aroma was a very subdued version of the style, the wheat was present but not strong. The expected banana and clove were very understated. The story was the same on the tongue, a very mellow example of the style.

The body was was pretty typical as well, clean and smooth. Drinkability was good the beer went down very easily.Overall, a decent, but real noticeable, example of the style. A bit better than some of the more widely available Hefe's, but not quite outstanding. Worth trying.
