3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Bull Falls. Poured crystal-clear bright golden with a short, dense white head. The aroma was sweet with lots of banana accented by cloves.. candied and very welcoming. The flavor was sweet again with banana and a little honey at the core.. clean white pepper and cloves accented.. very dry on the finish. Light-bodied and just a touch watery on the palate.. clean and very drinkable.

From Skyview’s growler. light overall. No visible sediment. Standard flavors of banana and bubblegum, with some clove and orange. A fair attempt at the style, but it could have more palate and maybe some sediment.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On draught at the brewery’s taproom in Wausau, Wisconsin. Pours a hazy golden pale amber brew with a creamy white head that slowly dissipates to a white ring and film top with some spotty lacing. Aroma of typical hefeweizen banana esters, cloves, a touch of vanilla, bubble gum and a touch of white pepper. Taste is smooth, creamy, medium bodied with flavors of multi-grain malt with wheat, some white bread, bananas, cloves and a touch of vanilla. Finish is semi-dry with a grainy wheat malt aftertaste that turns out slightly metallic and then a clean finish. Didn’t pick up much smoke flavors but the slight spiced aftertaste made this one stand out.
