M- Light-bodied, watery texture, moderate carbonation
D- Smooth and nicely balanced Hefe, nothing too complex or bold, just a solid performer for this style

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap @ Talking Stick Golf Course of all places. Pours a lovely cloudy gold with a frothy, thick white head. Nice lacing. Soft, perfume aroma of wheat, clove, and great banana from the yeast. Crisp wheaty taste up front which rapidly shifts to the Bavarian yeasty sweetness. Solid banana and clove in this one with a nice backdrop of lemon peel. A bit watery in the mouthfeel, but overall, a nice hefe.

On tap at Oreganos in Phx (camelback and 10th st). Cloudy gold. The nose had banana, clove, citrus, and yeast. Flavor was the same as the nose, with less banana, and a little more citrus and wheat. All around a great hefe. Worth trying if you are in the Phx area.

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Pours like cloudy pineapple juice with a frothy white head from the tap at Four Peaks. Brimming with the aroma and flavor of bananas, citrus, and pineapple. Sickeningly sweet in my opinion and unfit for consumption.
