Darker & more alcoholic than style, pours a darker amber color. Nice head. Hit with heavy phenols of banana & fruits. First sip was nirvana. This stuff is nectar of the Gods.

Poured cold into a hefe glass. Can’t make out bottling date but I’m pretty sure it was bottled sometime in August 2014, consumed on 9/25/14.
Look = 4.25 Pours a mostly clear golden straw color with 2 fingers of frothy off white head. There are a few bubbles streaming through it. Head fades to a light cap, good retention and great lace.
Aroma = 4.5 The backbone of the aroma is wheat and pale malts. Can quickly pick up the esters that provide banana notes and there is some spice notes too. A hint of bubblegum, great complex aroma.
Taste = 4.0 Wheat and pale malts, the banana hits on the backend of the taste and lingers into the aftertaste. Some bubblegum notes too.
Feel = 3.75 Medium bodied with low carbonation, not crisp but more silky; a little on the flat side.
Drinkability = 4.0 Easy drinking and somewhat refreshing.
Overall = 4.125 Nice and complex, a lot of different aromas and flavors keep things interesting. Pretty solid hefe all around.
