2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours cloudy from bottle with only an inch of foam that doesn’t leave much lacing. The nose has a bit of a funk to it that’s off-putting. There’s some slight hints of banana on the tongue. The finish is a bit dry. Not a good hefe by any measure.

Cloudy straw yellow color with a white rim head. Aroma of wheat, banana, lemon, and clove. Wheat, lemon, and clove hit the palate upfront with a hint of banana. Not bad at all for the style.

poured a cloudy golden blond color with a thin white head that needed a little more retention and lace, but was still nice. Aroma had a nice spicy profile to it pepper and clove mix with some citrus. Initial flavor was of bread which gave way to a delicate spice quality was finishing with a nice lemon note. Body was smooth and medium bodied.

Growler filled at Malt & Market. More gold than yellow, hazy, big head that doesn’t last. Faint banana and clove, some citric tang as well. Definitely German yeast and not American. A little too fizzy; it cuts into the flavor.

A - Pours a slightly hazy golden-orange color with a finger of crisp white head atop. The head fades down fairly quickly to a thin layer leaving behind some spots of lace.
S - Aroma is a mix of wheat and citrus fruits (lemon and orange). There are also some spices that are very noticeable in the nose.
T - Starts off with some wheat flavor and some lemon flavor as well. There is just a bit of banana in th background as well that grows. Through the middle, some stronger banana and spices come out. The finish is a mix of lemon and wheat flavors that linger nicely.
M - Medium-light bodied with moderate lively carbonation. Feels really smooth and crisp. The finish has a nice amount of sweetness and is fairly clean and refreshing.
D - Very drinkable. The banana flavor is really nice and everything feels really balanced. The finish is really clean and only a bit of wheat flavor.

Had this one on draught at the brewpub in Lake Placid, New York. Cloudy, light yellow pour with a light nose of orange and spice, sweetness of banana bread and spiciness of lemon, with a nice, tart finish. Great job!
