4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
This beer is close to franzincaner (sp?) - clove like aroma and taste. There is a slight emptiness to it when the yeast is not stirred in. overall, delicious, refreshing, and smooth... A bit more up front esters would suit my tastes better.

12 ounce bottle into weizen glass, bottled on 8/10/2015. Pours hazy bright golden yellow color with a 2 finger dense and fluffy white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of big banana, bubblegum, clove, lemon, pear, apple, wheat, cracker, bread, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of fruity/spicy yeast, pale malt, and light earthy hop notes; with great strength. Taste of big banana, bubblegum, clove, lemon, pear, apple, wheat, cracker, bread, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness. Light herbal bitterness and light-moderate yeast spiciness after the finish; with lingering notes of banana, bubblegum, clove, wheat, cracker, bread, and herbal/yeast earthiness on the finish for a short bit. Very nice robustness, complexity, and balance of fruity/spicy yeast, pale malt, and light earthy hop flavors; with a great malt/bitter/spiciness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Light-moderate dryness after the finish as well. Medium-high carbonation and medium bodied; with a very smooth, fairly crisp, and creamy/bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming present after the finish. Overall this is a damn nice hefeweizen style. All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/spicy yeast, pale malt, and light earthy hop flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

Delicious beer starting with the light scents grapefruit, cloves and bananas and continuing through the smooth malted wheat. And yes, an extra "appearance" point for the amusingly posed pooch on the label of the bottle from which this was poured.

Bottle sample at a tasting at Levi’s place. Thanks Levi’s friend. Cloudy yellow. Aroma of graininess, vegetables, overripe fruits, a smoky note, a bit of spiciness. Slightly swetish flavor, with bread, yeast, graininess, some spiciness, fruitiness, and a vegetal touch. Quite light-bodied.

Very hazy yellow pale pour with quite a bit of head. Very unique taste. I’m used to my Weizen having a fruit taste, usually citrus. This one though tastes like banana. Yes banana. This ss not a bad thing.
