4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap @ Pizza Port Ocean Beach: Poured a bright glowing yellow and had a decent amount of haze. Was served with a small formation of head and as for the aroma, there was an over the top smell of banana, bubblegum and clove that was truly mouthwatering and worthy of a German stamp of approval. The flavor was just as good with a thick and heavy taste of banana and a gentle background of spice perhaps clove. The real deal here and stays true to German recipes of hefeweizen.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A: The beer pours the usual cloudy orange tinted gold color with a couple fingers of white head.
S: The clove and banana aromas are just massive on this beer. The banana is sort of overripe and very sweet, but quite pleasant. A moderate bubblegum aroma along with a solid wheat and bread malt base.
T: A pretty damn sweet flavor, but I like it. Sweet bread, sweet wheat, and very sweet banana and bubblegum esters. The clove is not quite as intense as it was on the nose, but does certainly make itsefl known.
M: The body and carbonation are both in the medium range.
D: Ah, a well done Hefeweizen. I would definitely recommend getting a glass of this beer.

Pale yellow-straw colour. A touch of soft clove/banana with a lingering wheaty spiciness. Pretty typical hefe really. A touch floury.

Served on tap at Port OB. Pours a nice clear yellow gold. The flavors and aromas are sweet with wheat, banana, a nice fruit bouquet. A decent hefe but admittedly not my favorite style.
