Had a pint with dinner at the Tampa Bay Brewing Co. brew pub in Ybor City FL. Served in a chilled pint glass as a slightly hazy light gold color. Good size delicately bubbly white head with some spotty lacing.

Aroma is great. has it all....astringent, bananas, cloves, a little lemon, mild wheat bitterness.

Taste is good, but no match for the promise of that smell. Some hefe aspects, but it is more lemon zest and wheat without much of the complexity the other flavors could bring. This is still a tasty beer but not a great hefeweizen.

Mouthfeel is a hair light but the beer is still crisp and inviting.

I enjoyed it with food on a warm Tampa December night. I would enjoy several of these on a hot night.
