On tap as "Wild Pitch Hefeweizen", probably the same. Hazy gold with a thick foamy white head. Nose of wheaty banana and light perfumey clove. Flavor is light and crisp with wheaty yeasty tones, and an expected light kiss of banana and light dry cloves. Really dry throughout. Really by-the-numbers.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
GABF 2013 (titled Wild Pitch Hefeweizen). Pours a hazy golden appearance with an off whtie head. Quite heavy phenols in the nose - banana, clove, vanilla and a fair amount of sweetness. A touch tart, lemon, banana, big bubblegum flavor. A little overdone in multiple respects, but not overly bad.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Turbid gold - frothy head - nose is strong clove and white pepper phenols, along with some earthy, tangy wheat - low.carbonation, medium body - bubblegum esters are a bit high in the flavor, as is thr banana - I prefer drier, more peppery and clove-heavy hefes - it presents this in the nose, but only in the finish in flavor - however, still a solid hefe - way better than most American examples.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tall, competition swing top bottle labeled "Wild Pitch Hefeweizen", lightly roused, then poured to a Czech-pils glass with a hazed, light gold color, plenty of rising, effervescent bubbles, a bubbly, white head of foam that quickly diminished to a small ring and film, and left a modest amount of spots and streaks of lacing. The aroma was light yeast, light grain, ripe banana, and mellowed spice as clove. The flavor added to these a noticeable, but not overbearing sweetness. Lively carbonation and low hop bitterness combined to project a nice crispness. The body was light+, but not watery. Flavorfully sessionable!

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Sandlot. Pours hazy golden-yellowish-orange with a small white head, basically looking like it should. The aroma is well-done if rather typical, with banana and clove notes, wheat, and fruity esters. The flavor is also standard wheaty banana and clove. A little on the sweeter side. Medium body and average carbonation. Really not bad for the style. If the BMC boys are going to do a "crafty" style well, this is probably going to be it I figure.
