look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

12 oz. bottle poured into a New Glarus pint glass

Appearance: semi-cloudy pale cold with a 2 inch billowing white head.

Smell: Bursting with intense banana and clove esters. A tiny bit of bready, biscuity aroma to it, but it;s really dominated by the banana and clove. Pretty much exactly what I'm looking for in a hefeweizen.

Taste: Same great banana/clove character as the aroma but a little less intense. A hint of caramel sweetness and just the slightest touch of grassy hops peeks through to add a little balance to the yeast showcase. This beer really capturees the flavor profile of a hefeweizen and amplifies it.

Mouthfeel: Fuller bodied than your typical hefe with a very smooth, silky finish. Extremely easy drinking despite the fairly high abv.

Overall: Think of it as an imperial hefeweizen done extremely, extremely well.
