Lots of haze, yellow/orange, small white ring, 1/3". Aroma was a bit of banana clove spice rack, as expected.

Mild stuff, everything as expected, lemon, banana, phenolic yeast, spice rack, almost no hops, lots of wheat, run of the mill stuff in the vein of Blue Moon or Shock Top.

This is a very good hefeweizen and one of the better Saranac beers that I've had.

Cloudy pale amber, it has a small-medium white head slowly shrinking to foamy ring.

Aroma is nice, full banana, pear, bread aroma with some clove.

Taste is juicy-zesty, faint lemony-grassy element, nice full feel and texture, a very good, well-rounded hefeweizen character.
