This beer comes in a hazy golden color with a huge white head. Very traditional looking for the style.

The aroma has banana clove, wheat, and bit of citrus. There's also that yeasty ester that comes with hefeweizens. Not a huge aroma, but still spot on.

The flavor follows with banana, clove, vanilla, orange peel.

Then mouthfeel is a bit lighter on this one and the flavor falls out to be a bit watery on the end.

Still, the beer is pretty spot on with the flavors and a good American example of the style.

Bright yellow hue gives off an iridescent look. The body was slightly hazy with tons of carbonation.

The scent was nice but light with bits of lemon and clove.

The taste and feel we're very much intertwined with strong bubbly expression. Almost champagne like, the bubbles lifted the flavor off of the tongue and dampened any real taste. Touches of lemony sweetness, banana and clove were present but hard to detect because of the large amount of carbonation. Overall, I wonder if I simply got a lovely batch or there's more hiding in this that I just missed.
