Dark gold with a haze. Hefty lemon nose. Where are the bananas and cloves? Decent mouthfeel. A bit of the banana taste in the palate but overall this is a letdown.

Bottled version obtained on a recent visit to Albany. A decent looking hefeweizen into the glass. Medium orange with with froth. Classic clove and wheat aromas. Flavor is more clove and spice with some bready notes. Slightly fruity, but not very banana. Decent effort from Lake Placid (contract brewed in Utica).
