3.4/5  rDev -8.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: light golden amber, thin Lacey head, and quite clear for this filtered wheat.

Smell: yeast with hints of banana, honey, and clove

Taste: wheat malty, slight citrus

Drinkability is good. The body is medium with a little carbonation. I had this in a bottle as well poured into a pint glass.

12 oz bottle poured into glass

A: Poured pretty clear to start with good looking carbonation. Once I swirled the remaining brew and poured the rest it got nice and cloudy. Color was on the golden side with about 1/2 a fingers worth of head that settled to a thin layer with very little lacing.

S: I'm getting the average stuff.... Citrus, banana esters, and a touch of clove.

T: I'm getting a mix of wheat and citrus right up front with touches of banana and clove at the finish. Very clean

M: Light bodied, nicely carbonated, dryer than I thought it might be. Overall very clean.

D: Pretty average for the style. Worth looking for in the VA.

Pours hazy, gold in color with 1/2 inch head. Taste is bananas, lemon, and wheat. Not the most complex hefe I have had, but it is clean and hits all of the right notes. This is a quality beer that I would pick up again, especially for a lazy beach day.

Pours a clear golden with a rocky head. Good retention.

Aroma is wheat beer like. Yeasty, some notes of citrus, banana.

Taste is wheat beer like...yeasty and citrusy and banana.

Mouthfeel is okay. I think its too watered down. Taste is fine, but the finish makes it have the consistency of water. Even though wheats are supposed to be light, they shouldn't be this thin. Flavor profile is good, though, and it still delivers. Drinkable.
