Nice yeast presence in this one that makes the nose and mouth pop with some banana and clove. Otherwise standard.

Bit different for a wheat beer. Has an atoms of bananas and you can taste banana too with a slight warming aftertaste of cloves. Pretty good.. (k)

Banana and clove are typical of a Hefeweizen, but the light body is too sweet and lacks that refreshing finish typical of the style.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A hazy light yellow pour with a white head. Very heavy clove spiciness on the nose. A touch of bubblegum, moderate banana, and some sweet wheat bread. Taste is also heavy on the clove with a mild banana note. Some good malt and wheat sweetness, mild citrus peel, and a light bitterness.

It has a citrus tone to it, even without the lemon they with it.
I really wanted to love it, but I ended up wishing it was...well, just better.

My Bottom Line:
Citrus fruit, banana esters and crunchy wheat coalesce in this American Weizen’s doughy body, forming a perhaps generic, but quite enjoyable pint.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A ring of foam surrounds the cloudy blond.
-The cushy mouthfeel is one of this beer’s most endearing features.
-Both the aroma and flavour profile are straightforward and well developed.
-Light hop bitterness concludes each sip.
On tap at Kern River Brewing.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap @ the brewpub. Cloudy orange with a small creamy off-white head, fading to a film. Loads of banana in the aroma with some faint spicy clove notes. Flavor is much the same with just a little bit of lemon. Big wheat finish with bitterness around a 2 or so. Light prickly carbonation with a medium body. This is not an American Wheat--this is one banana-y hefe.

On tap at the brewpub in Bakersfield. Poured a really nice cloudy yellow with a white head. Aroma was banana and cloves. Flavor was a bit of the same, but also a bit on the sweet side which was surprising. The banana was not overwhelming which was nice. Decent wheat.
