3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught at the brewpub. Served with a comically huge lemon slice on the rim of the sample glass, despite the menu saying that "lemon served on request only." I guess that the bartender didn’t get the memo on that one. The color is hazy gold and the head died as soon as the lemon juice got to it. I hate rating any beer with a serving addition, but this is the brewery, so that’s how they are presenting it. The aroma has expected weizen yeast character like banana and bubblegum , along with some lemon, though I took the fruit off as soon as I got the glass. The flavor has an obvious bubblegum fruity quality up front along with lots of ripe banana. Finishes tangy and lemony. Dry and well attenuated, though the body is a little too watery and lacks much wheat richness in the texture. Highly carbonated. Drinkable stuff for sure, but A little creamier texture would definitely help

Had on tap. Served on the patio very hazy deep yellow with a nice head. Aroma was very citrusy. Had this with a lemon slice. First sip, the bananna and cloves over well you, but start to subside at mid glass. A little too sweet, but a real thrist quencer

Lots of esters in the hef. Plenty of flavors of bananas and cloves. Flavor was very sweet. Even my gf said it was too sweet for her. A decent hef but I wish it finished a bit dryer.
