Pours murky orange brown with a 1 finger white head you can not see through this beer.

Nose has huge sweet banana and vanilla notes, reminds me of candy similar to runts. Not a whole lot of spicy notes but some minor clove that is mostly dominated by banana. Malt is very mild and has a sweet Carmel note to it.

Some banana but more clove comes out in the taste then was present in the smell. A slight Belgian funk keeps this brew from being too sweet. A slight sweet grainy malt is also detectable along with subtle hints of vanilla.

Mouthfeel is decent, carbonation is slightly low for my liking. Mouthfeel is a little thick for a hefe and there is a very slight dry feel from the Belgian yeast.

At Three Floyd's Brewpub

A - Hazy light amber, poured with medium white head, persistent ring around glass, soapy lacing throughout

S - Crazy amount of Bananas upfront and moderate Clove on the front, but mediun clove dominates the finish

T - Medium banana at first (I was expecting more from the nose) and balanced well by the clove. Finishes very clean with moderate amounts of both banana and clove. In the middle the banana really shines through and slight drys the mouth before both flavors meld together.

M - Medium Body, Medium Cabination, clean finish

O - Very solid, clean and brewed to style very well. For a Three Floyd's beer I was amazed that the hops never came through in the nose or while tasting.

After having a grower of Live Oak shipped to me this week and this beer randomly dropping, I had to do a taste off. I prefer Live Oak, but wouldn't hesitate to order this on a hot summer day. After reading many comments comparing the two for me it is no question, Live Oak is my preferred Hefeweizen.
