S: Banana and lotsa grains. a nice aroma

Dark, weathered, copper orange in color and murky. Poured with a thick white foam that slowly reduced to a strong white cap. Sweet banana and light spicy aromas. Medium bodied with assertove crisp carbonation. Banana flavor up front that is quickly overwhelmed by spicy flavors that continue to grow from the middle to the finish. Finishes crisply with a spicy, tangy bitterness. Definitely on the spicier side and not as well balanced as others.

P:  Murky copper-amber colored body with greyish off-white head that fades fast. Carbonation is there but sluggish and has black specks floating. 

S:  The nose starts with sweet dark fruits, cherry alcohol, banana bread, roasted wheat, yeast esters, and a spicy tingle in the nostrils.  Rich, malty and loads of spice.  

T/M:  Mouthfeel is thin but silky and somewhat sticky.  Taste follows the nose with loads of dark fruits, smoldered wheat, timid musty yeast, banana nut bread, clove and a spicy bite.  Finish is wet with a subtle dryness that appears gradually.  Brown sugar develops in the lingering aftertaste. 

O:   A rich and robust hefe that focuses on the heavy banana and clove flavor.  Maybe a little heartier than I like but still a great brew. This would be fantastic in the fall months.

Poured from the bottle into a wheat ale glass.

A real dark muddy brown body, opaque with a fairly creamy head that manages about two fingers and settles to a simple puck. Some good rising carbonation, but hard to see through the body. Kind of looks like a sewer. Wait a minute there is actually a piece of GRAIN on my head. Never seen that before.

Faint burnt clove smell, and bile. Good toasty grain also like a mild or English bitter strangely. Interesting, quite different.

Palate hits with a wet body, quite fizzy and club soda like in texture too. Finishes wet and clean, but with classic banana like esters also. Not much lingering flavor on the finish here either. Really missing the classic wheat chew on this.

Overall a real odd mix with a toasty mild grain like taste, and wet banana hefeweizen. Not feeling it, not a horrible beer though, but I am not a fan of this one.

Poured into a hefe weizen glass.

Appearance. Cloudy copper in color. Pours with 3 fingers of dense bone white head. This slowly dissipates leaving clumps of lacing on the side of the glass.

Smell. Spicy, this one leans more toward the cove side of the hefe spectrum. At the same time, though there is a definitive banana character in the background. All together it is reminiscent of banana bread.

Taste. Starts out sweet on the palate, like a banana creme pie or a banana milkshake. Some tartness cuts this and lingers for a while before a more spicy and nutty middle palate. The banana returns to compliment the spicy clove and walnut notes. This slowly transitions into a finish with a slight lingering tartness.

Mouthfeel. Overall it is creamy, but broken up a bit by aggressive carbonation.

A lot of complexity in the flavor of this one. It really gets the full range of the hefe weizen flavor profile. Love the color too.
