airrick2003 (538) - Louisiana, USA - NOV 13, 2014
Appearance: traditional average gold color, very hazy, has a small off white head Aroma: very funky, banana, yeast, bread, very aromatic Taste: lemon, some light bitterness, very strong banana and bread, Palate: average to soft carbonation, very nice hefe froth, banana mouthfeel, minimal aftertaste Overall: one of the better hefeweizen beers I've had, very strong flavors and aromas, highly recommended, from a draft pour which I'm sure explains the lack of head ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
