A-cloudy, yellow, billowing white head with some filthy lacing....proper hefe!

S-Clove, banana, bubble gum but neither of the three in abundance, or to the point that I wished it was 'more balanced'...they hit the esters just right on this one.

T-Nice and fluffy, just a tad of spice from the phenols, more clove, some gum and a nice little bit of hop kick in the finish. THIS was another one of those beers that just went down too easily.

M-Another balanced, enjoyable and firm feel from GR...can't say I'd change a thing on this hefe...I havn't enjoyed this style for a while now outside of Weihenstephaner...glad there is a new kid in town.

O-Impressive, and enjoyable. I will be giving these guys a lot of money in the future :(

Hazy, golden orange and and yellow with a thick white head, though, surprisingly, it doesn't leave much lace at all on the glass.

Pleasant and somewhat simple aroma: light banana and clove with a bit of wheat. Not as strong or powerful as my favorite within this style.

Light banana, clove, a hint of black pepper, and a little pear combine for a pleasing, accessible flavor. The flavors aren't quite as big and bold as I would prefer, even within style, but I think this is a very accessible and drinkable hefeweizen.

Medium mouthfeel with ample carbonation.

I think Golden Road accomplished exactly what they sought to do with this beer: an accessible, incredibly drinkable, relatively low-alcohol, flavorful hefeweizen.

It was one of my buddy's favorites.

Really drinkable light beer. The smell is banana and cloves and as well as the taste. For some reason it reminded of sweet corn.

Mouthfeel is light and crisp with good carbonation.

Overall nice experience. Would have it again.
