Apr 28, tap @ Rock Bottom, Chicago. Pours cloudy golden amber with a small off white head leaving nice lace. Aroma is fruity, crispy, bananas, yeast and cereal. Flavor much similar to aromas. Nice balanced finish with fruity yeasty and bitter aftertaste. Excellent.

A darker than usual haze gazes back at me from the safe confines of his tasting glass while streaking along the sides are oranges and ambers. A white collar sticks stiffly to the sides while his nose reaches out to soothe my woes. Yeast, an explosion of bananas, tutti-frutti, and bubblegum envelope me in all that a hefeweizen rightfully should. The bananas are especially pungent, ranging from ripe to over-ripe and mushy to the touch. Banana bread rises in the oven as cloves permeate the air. A sprinkling of nutmeg and pecan is the perfect garnish to my awaiting bready delights. Encouraged by his nose, I dive right into his inviting depths to come up for air only when I absolutely had to. Bananas and cream, large chunks of banana bread, and a whiff of tutti-frutti make me feel right at home. The front and back are mild and clean with all of his gusto hitting hard in the middle with more banana and cloves while nutmeg and pecan decorate the finish for what they are worth. The further I quaff, the more the top of my tongue tickles and tingles under his flavor assault. It is borderline uncomfortable, and really the only element detracting from this otherwise good German-style hefeweizen from Rock Bottom Brewery.

[Tap] Sampled back in mid-December. Slightly cloudy yellow pour with little head. Aroma of grass and cereal grains. Some wheat malts come through in the flavor, but not much else. Watery mouthfeel. More of a pale lager than an American Wheat.

Tap at Rock Bottom Chicago. Pale yellow pour with a small white head. Grain and slight malt on the nose. Similar taste and very mild hop.
