3.53/5  rDev -12.4%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A cloudy golden pour that leaves a nice wheaty head, pretty brew.

The smell and taste are certainly hefe but not quite as hefe as I would like, the bastard that I am. The ferment was a bit too cold for me, a little too clovey, definitely dynamic, but I could use some bananna as well, to balance things out. The yeast flavors and esters are definitely what I was looking for, and I found it a bit one-dimensional.

The mouthfeel is creamy and crisp as only a hefe can be, but far from perfect.

I could drink quite a few of these, but Hopsnort is the tap right next to it, so I feel I could do better with a different order.

The beer came a cloudy pale gold with a two-finger head. The smell was banana and clove and spices. The taste was right on with what a hefe should be with some sweet banana that's followed up by a bit of citrus and some spices. The mouthfeel slightly thick with some crisp carbonation. A good version of the style.

Had this on the way up to Corolla. Aroma was right on for style. Lots of banana and clove. Nice white head that stayed around for a long time. Pretty hazy appearance. Nice wheat flavor that went well with my lunch. I preferred this over the lemongrass wheat. Nice finish.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

The beer arrived on the table hazy pale golden yellow with a white and frothy long lasting head which worked well to lace the glass.

The aroma was strong banana with a light clove spice presence. Also present was a well done wheat aromatic.

The flavor was a nice wheat coupled with a strong estery banana and a nice phenolic clove spice. The wheat still shined through the esters and phenols and there was just a slight hint of vanilla in the flavor.

The finish was dry with a nice lasting banana flavor into the aftertaste. The body was above medium and well done.

5.2% ABV according to the current description.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Opaque pale golden hue under a short, one finger white head.

Smell: Banana, clove & other spices, floral hops.

Taste: Pronounced banana flavor up front, and the clove/general spice opens up a little. The hop bouquet finishes.

Mouthfeel: Sweet first, then a little spicy, and the hops provide a nice, palate cleansing dry finish.

Drinkability: This was a tasty Hef; it had the most pronounced banana taste I've ever had in a beer. I could definitely deal with a few of these in one evening.

I had this on tap at the brewery

Arrives a (too cold!) very cloudy yellow with a pinkish tint. No head!! A slice of lemon wedged on the rim of the glass. I wish these people would ASK if I wanted lemon with that! (NO, I DON'T!) Pretty strong carbonation observed. No lacing. (obviously)

Aroma is good banana/clove, bready/yeasty wheat, a hint of lemon; very pleasant. Spicy and fruity.

The first flavor is tartness, then bananas and cloves. A very good flavor of wheat and yeast is next, with a long aftertaste of lemons. Still, plenty of sweetness to balance this. Really well done.

Mouthfeel is tart, with a strong tingle on the tongue from carbonation. Very refreshing, clean and crisp. Finish is tart/sweet.

I would recommend this to anyone who likes hefe's. I really wish they would ask me if I wanted a slice of lemon, but beside that distraction, this is excellent.

Had lunch at the brewpub and had two of their beers. The hefe was excellent. Served in a Pilsner glass. Everything you would expect for a hefeweizen. Cloudy straw gold color. Lots of carbonation Big bubbly white head and some lacing.

Smell had all the bells and whistles: Cloves, citrus, astringency, bananas and bubblegum. Taste was the same. No orange slice with this beer, perhaps started a bit too cold for the true beer geek, but I warmed it up a bit with my hands.

Mouthfeel ws just right, crisp, astringent and rich. Drinkability is excellent. I just had time for a quick stop for lunch. I could have sat around all afternoon enjoying these!!!

I'm sure that the top 2 or three German hefe's on tap would beat this one, but for a trip to the Outer Banks...this is a great treat to look forward to. Stay away from the samples, get a nice big glass and enjoy!!!

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A - Beautiful cloudy yellow. Very minimal head.

S - The smell is about 40/60 banana and clove. Some sweet bubblegum esters and warm bready malt are there to round it out.

T - Warm bready malt hits you first, followed by a mix of strong clove, banana, tartness, and a little sweetness in about as perfect a hefe balance as you can ask for. The clove, which was a little stronger than the other elements throughout, explodes on the swallow. Nice and clean finish.

M - They nailed the mouthfeel here. Very refreshing.

O - Great balance. Probably one of the best Hefe's I've had. Definitely the best clove-heavy one. Normally I prefer warmer fermented ones, but they may have converted me.
