WOW, one of the best beers I have had in a long time. Got this as a treat at a tasting. It reminded my of some beers brought back from Germany. Poured cloudy, with a nice white head. It had a nice banana and spice aroma and flavor. I can’t wait to visit State College!

Aroma has citrus, banana, hay. Appearance is golden, hazy, cloudy, frothy. Taste is medium sweetness, lightly bitter, and amazing for a domestic Hefe. Palate is light body, lively carbonation. Really my favorite beer from Ottos in a while.
