Bomber. This pours a golden color, just slightly hazy, with a white fluffy head on top. This has everything you’d expect form a good Hefeweizen. Citrusy banana, yeast, wheat, light clove, some grass, and a little bit of herbal spiciness. It’s all wrapped in a delicate package; light-bodied, crisp, and refreshing. The aroma and flavor pretty much mirror each other. This is pretty good stuff.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
22oz bottle, purchased at Mammoth. Pours a pulpy pale grapefruit color; creamy, fine-bubbled head that doesn’t last very long. Pepper and clove show through a lemony and bread pudding core in the aroma; not quite dialed in (a touch of egg-iness), but endearing. Medium body; lively CO2. As with the aroma, there’s a white pepper and clove yeast character atop a slightly muddled core sweetness: ripe-ripe bananas, chewy creme brulee, and a touch of wheatiness; one of their lesser renditions across the board (went through the whole lineup at Mammoth), and still damn tasty. Medium-length finish: banana sugars and a touch of wheat husk.

Another top notch summer brews. This one was a yellow color with a huge foamy head. The aroma was malt sweetness with a nice bit of citrus. The flavor was quite nice, light with clove and banana and a nice sourness to it.

This was a shared tasting via Facebook Chat with Strykzone. The beer poured golden with very large foam head that settled quickly. All the carbonation went into the head, as there were no bubbles in the beer.. Light to medium body and smooth mouthfeel. The nose is banana with cloves. Flavor got bigger as it wend fishing up pretty tasty. Very nice beer and would go good a warm day.

Thanks to Hayduke for sending this my way. We shared it via Facebook chat with Rick. This beer had a shave cream like foam on top and a clear copper golden body with no carbonation visible. Aroma is cloves and a bit of banana and was light. Flavor was also those cloves and banana. Like it nose, it was light. Flavors are authentic with nothing artificial noted. This is completely inoffensive and very easy to drink to the max. It wold make a great lawn mower beer in the summer heat. The lower ABV is a huge plus for me.
