One of many I had on tap on the Brewery yesterday

A-Cloudy yellow, some carbonation, two finger head

S-Clove, wheat and banana

T-Wheat, slight lemon, clove with some banana.

M-Light, not much carbonation and a little watery.

O-A decent Hefeweizen, but the carbonation and the mouthfeel weren't as good as I would have liked.

Again i know this is alot like Suspects and that is because we drank together and talked about it (and i like to steal from him)

Appearance: Cloudy straw gold in color. Aggressive pour leads to a 2 finger head that doesn't move. Lacing is strong, thick and lasts the entire drink.

Smell: Clove bready-yeast smell. Perfect hefe smell.

Taste: taste follows the nose to a tee. Wonderful wheat, clove, and beautiful yeast finish.

Mouthfeel: Light, perfectly carbonated no lingering aftertaste to speak of.

Overall: This is a beer i will enjoy for summers to come! Great easy to drink beer and i can walk to get my Growler filled!! Thanks CBC

The beer pours a cloudy gold color with a thick frothy white head that slowly fades to lacing. The aroma is good. It has a light pale and wheat malt scent along with a wonderful array of hefeweizen yeast esters. The banana/clove character rings true with this one. The taste is good. It has a smooth pale and wheat malt flavor; perfectly balanced. It goes down easy with an excellent yeasty finish. It's light and fruity; perfect for a hot summer day. The mouthfeel is fine. It is a medium/full bodied beer with adequate carbonation. This is a damn tasty beer. It's refreshingly smooth with lots of that hefe character; a solid summer session ale.
