This one is a gusher. After a quick pour and a cleanup, though, the beer is amazing. It has a tall white head and a dark gold, Amber color. Some haze. The smell is strong of bubblegum and malt, flowery hops, and subtle spice. Medium sweetness and lots of wheat softness. Great!

Pours a clear amber color. 1/4 inch head of an off-white color. Slight retention and poor lacing. Smells of wheat, sweet malt, slight alcohol, hint of clove, hint of yeast, and a hint of pine. Fits the style of a Hefeweizen. Mouth feel is sharp and clean, with a low carbonation level. Tastes of wheat, sweet malt, hint of pale malt, slight yeast, hint of hop, hint of alcohol, and a hint of bubblegum. Overall, poor appearance, very low carbonation for a Hefeweizen, decent aroma, body, and blend.

Pours amber in with haze and a thin head. Smell has predominately banana esters along with a large wheat presence,sweet doughy malt,and yeast. Somewhat thicker for the style but moderate amount of carbonation help cut the body
