3.6/5  rDev -8.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Canned on 6/24/19

Pours a clouded golden straw capped with a steady two fingers of uniform foamy white head, with solid retention resulting in a slight frothy collar.

Aromas of spicy bread crusts and sweet wheaty custard with a touch of candied banana bread are immediately apparent; clove accentuates an overall sweet tone over time.

Taste shows fruity citrus esters with a presence along with spicy wheat upfront; sticky, earthy banana and clove developing more deeply toward the finish, with a more banana and light citrus influence on the swallow.

Mouthfeel comes light-bodied with a silky grittiness around the mid-palate while being boosted by a quick jolt of fluffy carbonation; lightly crisp, somewhat thinning wheaty finish.

Solid take on a classic German hefe, if not inconsistent at times; where it hits its mark, it does so well enough to leave an easy-drinking, sweeter take on the style overall.

Draft at the brewery
Big pillowy head, nice retention and lacing, fair hazy golden orange wheat color

Nose typical hefe, doughy wheat, little toasted, bread dough, light citrus orange, mild spices like clove and maybe coriander

Taste more creamy wheat, very doughy wheat, gristy like wheat almost American wheat crossed with grisette, fruity cereal, touch of bitterness, soft citrus notes and mild spices again mostly clove, drier but little sticky finish

Mouth is med to lighter bod, little creamy, very high fizzy carb but not tingly

Overall not bad, nice esters/phenols from the yeast, wheat is nice esp the nose but a little too doughy/gristy on the taste
