3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap poured into a sampler glass. Had this one under the name "Hockeytown Hefeweizen" - but Iím presuming itís the same beer. Classic aromas of banana and clove hit the nose with a subtle wheat grain note. It pours a slightly hazy straw yellow with a white, frothy and soft head. Lots of messy lace is left behind with an above average, puffy retention. A medium light better is balanced well by a medium level of mellow sweetness. Itís thin, yet creamy in texture with a medium body and lots of soft carbonation. It has a nice spicy bite to it at the finish. a bit of a dry cereal flavor also appears at the finish. It is dry and crisp with a roasted grain and light chalkiness / clove grit in the short aftertaste.
