Schaumburg. Semi-hazy and pale yellow in color with a short creamy white head. Banana, cloves and vanilla bear the brunt of the aroma with some lemons and yeast lingering in the background. Nice creamy and effervescent feel. Lemons shine in the beginning, transitioning to a slight searing sense. Smooth vanilla and a dash of pepper - paired with unripe bananas - finish things up. Decent.

Murky golden color with fluffy white head. Aroma is all about cloves and bananas, as well is the taste. A bit of a thicker body than I was expecting, but this was a decent brew from a generic suburban chain brewpub.

Pours a slighty cloudy yellow, but needs more haze. Aroma is clove and banana. The flavor starts promising with banana and slight bubblegum, but finishes weak and flat. Thick mouthfeel. Needs more assertiveness in the finish to be better.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cloudy orange haze. Light estery aroma with hints of fruit (orange, banana.) Nutty and sweet malts flavors, quite balanced, with banana, clove and orange flavors, along with a hint of vanilla. A pretty nice recipe for a hefe and this batch was brewed quite well.

3.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap Arlington, TX..... I orderd another full glass after the sample of this beer. I kinda enjoyed it. It really looked like a unibroue beer, without the big head. Very small head. I could really smell the bananas in this beer. The taste is really close to a unibroue beer without the alc and wood flavor. Decent beer.
