Pours a pale dull yellow only slightly hazy, not murky like a good yeasty German Hefe. Small white head falls quick to a ring only light lace.

Aroma is wheat malts some banana, more lemon grass backed by some spice mostly clove some light pepper.

Taste is mostly like the nose good wheat notes, some tartness that comes through with a burst of carbonation. Lemon grass and spice clover lightly peppery with some light banana in the finish.

Mouthfeel is approaching medium with a burst of carbonation in the middle.

Overall not bad for an American attempt, but really prefer deep murky, yeasty German ones.

Thanks wishuwerebeer for sharing this growler with me. Poured into a snifter, it appears a clear golden yellow color with a white cap that is quick to fade.

The smell includes notes of clove and pear with a little herbal to peppery spice aspect that gets a little grassy. Overall not bad smelling.

The taste includes clove, peppery spice and some grassy herbal hop aspect. Some mild pear and bubblegum is also detected. This brew is all about the yeast influence and I enjoy it.

This is a light bodied brew with a light amount of carbonation. This is some pretty nice stuff. I think it might have lost some of its spark by being seved in a gowler and having all the yeast drop out of suspension but otherwise this was good per style.

Poured on-tap at the brewery and served in a shaker pint, the beer is a crystal clear, blonde-gold coloring, with a fluffy, white head. Nose of clove, subtle banana, and a sweet and bready backbone. The flavors are heavy banana forward, with a subtle roast character, and clove spicing in the backbone. Sweet, sugary aftertaste, on a slick, slightly oily body. The finish is slick, with a sweet and slightly spiced linger.
