Poured into a weizen glass. The appearance was a soft hazy burnt yellow to orange color. For a hefeweizen, I was a bit disappointed with lack of big fluffy white head that normally exists for the style. Still, the smell grabs the normal flavors of a hefeweizen - banana esters, delicate clove and sly malted wheat underneath. The flavor is basically the same with a lingering sharp malty wheat aftertaste and finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a nice sessionable feel to it. Carbonation seems to hit appropriately but the clove does hit a bit more than expected. Overall, for the most part, it’s good. I’m surprised that aromas came out as they did with lack of head. But, I’m not going to be too hard on this despite appearance. Somehow, aromas and flavor seems to be on par.

Had on tap at the restaurant, served in the 8 beer sampler. The beer had a murky, pale yellow appearance with a mixture of bready wheat and citrus aromas. The taste was a bit muted as a citrus flavor was apparent, but a little thin. The mouthfeel, however, was quite good and it gave the beer a nice creamy carbonation. Overall, this beer was ok and its best feature was the mouthfeel.

16oz can from Bert's
Hazy light yellow with a stingy white head. Spicy earthy sweet bready aromas, some clove some banana. Sweet bready maltiness with a hint of spice, clove and light banana yeasty flavors, little to no hop flavor or bitterness. Pretty easy to drink no flaws, but just a bit uninspiring.
