canned 11/20/18

L-The beer pours a hazy yellow with a 1 finger of pale white froth. The head recedes to a ring and small island leaving irregular patches of lace.
S-Wonderfully strong tones of banana with more subtle clove presence.
T- The nose translates wonderfully here. Big flavors of banana accented with clove. The wheat gives those flavors a neutral stage to perform on. Wheat is there, but very much in the backround.
F-Mouthfeel overall is on the lighter side of medium. Carbonation is very light.
O-An excellent American made Hefeweizen. If you like the style, I highly recommend it.

Pretty good domestic interpretation of a hefe. Not quite on the level of Weihenstephaner but pretty good. Love the mouth feel. Banana and clove are subtle but overall, this is a good hefe!!!

On tap at Forno in Baltimore, MD. Nice, clear pale golden with not much retention. Nice nose and taste of banana, wheat, and clove. Light-bodied, easy drinking.

Draft at Lost & Found. Closest I’ve come to a German here (other than Live Oak), near perfect all around except for the pour. Wonderful consistency and feel, basic essences of banana and clove are present. Just need a half liter pour in a weizen glass to be sure.

Can dated 2/22/17 into pint glass. Pours a cloudy pale straw color with a thin off-white head that dissipates quickly. Initial impression is banana, wheat, and spices - very true to the style. Mouthfeel is creamy; carbonation is middle of the road. Sweet, fruity finish. Not bad, but a little too sweet and fruity for my tastes.
