4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
This is definitely now one of my top 5 beers. The flavor is light and sweet. There is a light taste of bananas.
This is only the second hefeweizen I have had (the other being New Glarus Dancing Man Wheat which was also awesome).
Barley John’s is an awesome brew pub.
