Bottle poured a dark golden color with a thick one finger head that retained well. Aroma has big banana, wheat, mild sweetness, and lots of yeasty character. Mouth feel is light with low side carbonation. Flavor again is all about the yeast, banana, flowery, wheat, and very easy drinking.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle. No code date. Appearance: light golden with only a slight cloudiness. Not much yeast residing in the bottom of the bottle.
Aroma: Smells distinctly like a Belgian yeast, not German. Clove dominates, with apple and pear prominent. Banana is there but faint.
Taste: Yeast starts to shine on the tongue. Banana and clove dominate, with an abnormally sweet malt and fruity backbone. Almost cloyingly sweet, with citrus/orange coming thru.
Mouthfeel: Light to medium body, thin for the style, and lighter carbonation than typical for style.
Finish: Really sweet citrusy malt lingers, with no hop character to balance and little carbonic bite.
Overall: Far from a great example of the style. Cloyingly sweet, light body and carbonation for the style, and the aroma is much more phenolic than estery. Still a refreshing beer, but could be cleaned up.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft. Cloudy burnt orange with a short white head. Aroma shows browned banana and clove esters and phenols of weizen yeast with muddled wheat and over-kilned caramel-heavy malt (burnt pancakes). Bubble gum fruitiness becomes overblown as it warms, and the yeast seems more doughy and raw. Itís medium bodied and sweet with low bitterness and medium acidity, wheat is slick and the malt is syrupy while the carbonation is brash. Pretty basic and rough hefeweizen.
