Bottle shared by Curran, thanks man!

Pours a hazy orange/yellowish, with a one inch head, and a good amount of lacing.

Smells really strongly of clove and banana. That's to be expected, but it seems more concentrated than typical, really strong aroma.

New Glarus nailed this guy. It tastes like a hefeweizen, dialed up in intensity, as evinced by the higher than typical ABV. Really strong clove and banana flavors, with some tangy wheat bitterness, and some mild citrus flavors.

This one is light bodied, but certainly a bit more full bodied than the typical hefe. This one has a really crisp and smooth mouthfeel, and is insanely drinkable.

This is probably the best US made hefeweizen I've ever had. I have not had Live Oak's, so for now, this will stand.

Pours a hazy orange, even hazy due to my swirling the yeast in, 2 fingers of white head, that has been sticking around for the last 15 minutes, very nice lacing

Smell is banana, spice like a cinnamon, clove, some subtle orange, a nice Belgian yeast

Taste is like a mix of banana and lemon bread in the opening followed by a bready maly, spice and more of a earthy banana bringing up the rear.

Mouthfeel is full due to the fine and abundant carbonation, finishes clean

This has always been Hefe and it remains so, I look forward to its release every year! Cheers!
