Looks quite nice, pours with a good head. Aroma is pungent for a hefeweizen, quite a bit of character. Taste is very pleasant, with some yeast adding a citrus tang. Quite a long finish also.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Aroma- Huge banana maltiness dominates. It just has this very nice balanced aroma reminiscent of banana bread.
Appearance- Nice light gold color with translucent like cloudiness once the yeast was roused from the bottle. Great lacing on the pint glass as the beer was consumed.
Taste- Balanced and very similar to the aroma. Bready malty banana goodness with just barely enough hops to balance.
Palate- Very easy-drinking and refreshing. As it warms up, more bready banana comes out.
Overall- Excellent example of the style. Great balance of banana esters and maltiness with just barely enough hops to give balance. Great beer for doing anything in the summer.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sample at the brewpub. This brew is a cloudy yellow color with a thin white head that fizzes away quickly. Spotty lacing. Aroma of wheat, citrus and malt. Light, clean body with flavors of mildly zesty oranges, wheat, doughy malt and a touch of spice. The finish is short and fruity. Slightly above average overall.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a cloudy pale golden yellow color with straw/hay colored hues and a half finger frothy white head that quickly fades into a thin ring. Minimal lacing left behind.
Slightly zesty, peppery aroma with hints of clove, bready yeast, banana and citrus rind.
Fuller boded than expected with a luscious bready yeast character that adds fullness and complexity. Huge banana presence that slightly overpowers the pepper and clove notes. Not much citrus flavor which is a disappointment but it’s pretty easy to drink, especially during the warmer months.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours like a traditional hefe, with a cloudy yellow body and a tall white head.
Light yeast aroma.
Good, but I’d like a more pronounced banana -clove flavor than this one is giving me.

bomber pours a cloudy pale yellow with big fluffy white head. Sweet, fruity aroma of wheat and bread, banana, clove, some guava, sourdough. Medium bodied, very smooth and creamy. Flavor is banana pudding, sourdough, spiced wheat, with a tropical fruitiness on the finish. Quite a nice hefeweizen, especially american made. I am liking dry dock alot.
