3.69/5  rDev -3.7%
look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Hazy, nearly milky pale yellow body with a thin, bone white head.

Smell: Pilsner and wheat malts are present, faintly sweetish, though not quite as dense as in some hefes. A little touch of banana puree, a snippet of lemon peel, hint of clove.

Taste: Scantly grainy pils, soft malted wheat with a generous dusting of powdered sugar. Light lemon. Minor, minor spice quality. Modest banana. Low hop character, bitterness. Clean finish with a little zip of effervescence.

Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium-plus carbonation.

Overall: A light leaning hefeweizen. Still though, the flavors are pleasant, well-integrated, making it one of their better beers to date.

Quick Notes

A - Cloudy yellow, big white pillow and excellent lacing. Spot on.

S - Strong banana and bready wheat. Hint of clove, touch of some grassy hops. Also spot on.

T - Banana and lemon grass. Not a ton of bumblegum. Flavors are a bit more subdued next to the uber traditional examples from Germany, but it's definitely only a small step down.

M - Great carbonation, light and refreshing.

O - Another spot on true to style brew from Cherry Street.
