look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

12 ounce glass poured to wine glass
average, yellowish, hazy, no foam
not too fragrant, grains, fruity
low bitterness, some sweetness, tart
medium carbonation, sudden drop then long follow through, long tart bitter aftertaste
Overall: Very good beer, balance, nothing exciting but nothing exceptional either

L: Cloudy gold, with a soapy white head and streaky lacing.

S: White bread, lightly toasted, with hints of apple and lemon, and grass and earth.

T: Lightly toasted, white bready malt, apple, pear, lemon, and hints of grass and clove on the finish.

M: Medium-light, moderate carbonation, very drinkable.

O: A crisp, refreshing thirst quencher, but not the most flavorful hefeweizen. Taste closer to something like Shock Top.

Served in a pint glass.

Appearance: Barely cloudy gold color. Heavy bubbles.[White] Head is roughly half a finger's length off the body. Drops quick with almost zero lacing.

Smell: Light hops and a bit of banana skin, very bland scent.

Taste: Light malts and pieces of banana skin. Lightly bitter and real easy to drink.

Mouth: Medium carbonation and average stickiness.

Overall: I want to like it but it's a tough brew to judge, somewhere in the middle of like and leave alone.
