More clove than banana. This is my second Lake Placid beer and they both have a clean aspirin-like finish which I don't like. Wasn't bad in the golden ale but it really ruins the hef.

Served in hefe glass at 45 degrees F.
And from the bottle at 40 degrees F. (My preference)

Appearance - Golden yellow, straw color. Wheaty and cloudy, but looks boring and flat. Okay head when poured, but falls apart quickly.

Smell - Malts: roasty, toasty, biscuity. Hops: herbal, spicy, very citrusy.

Taste - Missing the banana flavor I want in a hefeweizen. This one is more citrusy, and quite sour, which is a decent trade-off. Wheat flavor is overpowered, but there.

Mouthfeel - Passes smoothly onto the palate. Light carbonation is nice, and draws the citrus notes together. Refreshing and biting.

Overall - I've had better hefeweizen, without a doubt. This one's not too bad, but it's also a little tired and boring.

Poured into a Maredsous goblet. Because, hey, why the hell not?

A: Man, there ain't no polite way to say something looks like urine. And not even a regular day's pee, but really dark like when you're hungover and dehydrated. I'd usually expect something a little lighter from a hefe. Even the head was more off-white than white.

S: Spicy cloves and a bit of hay. Lacking in bannannerness.

T: Yep, 'nanner notes take a backseat to relatively heavy clove spice and mild wheat background.

M: Creamy. Bubbly. Etc.

O: Nice. Leave it in the bottle and enjoy.

Cloudy with an off white head. Not the best glass for this but still some lace to go with the decent size head. Dusky golden color with some carbonation evident. Smell has a nice amount of banana and wheat malt. A hint of clove and cinnamon. Taste is consistent with a good quality german Hefe. Crisp wheat malt and an load of yeasty fruitiness. Banana and clove flow into a mild but gently firm bitterness. Finish is dry and grainy with an slight metallic bitterness. The dryness gives this one an advantage in the thirst quenching department. Feel is crisp and effervescent with a good balance of lightness in the medium weight. This is a really good overall brew and one of the better domestic hefes.
