look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A: Poured a cloudy yellowish-orange color with a nice bgright glare. The head was a big and rocky one at first, nice white pillow that seemed to just die in about five seconds leaving a few bubbles. With the amount of wheat in this beer the retention should have been bettr and a head retention is a staple of the style guidelines

S: A big whiff reveals much of what I was exopecting-wheat, wheat and more wheat with a nice ripe banana note and a dash of vanilla

T: Initial wheat upfront with a rush of ripe banans to follow. The vanilla provides a little sweetness which I don't actually like in this beer and is a little much for the style. Traditionally, a moderate vanilla is acceptable on the nose but not so much in flavor. The finish is a bit heavy to me, sticky evem sweet and really not that refreshing

M: Medium bodied, a bit undercarbonated I felt, really not crisp but somewhat creamy and silky on texture

O: Not a bad weiss or hefe but not something I would recommend or routinely go back to.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

650 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Very hazy orange yellow. Not much of a head. Slight white collar.

Smell - Bananas and clove. Grainy. Phenolic. Standard hefe aroma.

Taste - Just like the aroma, lots of banana and clove. Spicy more than bananas. Grainy right up front, but gets a little more slick and phenolic in the finish. Lots of banana in the back. Some vanilla, maybe?

Mouthfeel - Starts off thin, but feels thicker into the drink. Well carbonated. Slightly metallic in the finish.

Overall - I'm not a hefe drinker, but this is decent.
