2.86/5  rDev -17.8%
look: 2 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 2 | overall: 2.5

From the bottom of the can: "04.07.16 17:37 81"

Appearance: The body is a medium gold color and very hazy. The head is short and fizzy with a white appearance. There is no head retention as it fades out to a very short ring of bubbles. No lacing.

Aroma: As soon as I started to pour the beer I could smell yeast. It has a nice slightly tangy aroma and a touch of clove.

Taste: There is a bit of a tang bite and just a bit of alcohol flavor. Just a slight bit of grain flavor but not much. Some very light earthy hop character.

Mouthfeel: It feels under-carbonated, thin, and watery. It does not have enough texture.

Overall: It wasn't that great of a beer. I wouldn't waste my time with it again. It doesn't even look like a proper Hefeweizen in the glass and that is only the start of it. I would recommend passing on this beer.

On tap, 10 June 2016 at the Outpost north of Lexington, Virginia.

An attractive hazy straw yellow beer with a decent white head. Given the style much about the nose was expected: big spicy and banana yeasty smells dominate. The spices are more dominant than in some examples, which I appreciate. Taste is in ways dry, woodsy, and leafy, a nice blend with the expected banana/clove notes. It's not too sweet, and the dryness is welcome. Beer could be thicker in flavor, perhaps, but the leanness is probably intended. Mouthfeel is smooth and a little slick.
