Tap @ Sleepy Dog. Pours a touch hazy, light yellow appearance with a white head. Huge banana, overly phenolic, dirty spicy aroma. Goopy, syrupy, big banana, tangy, disgusting flavor. Fuck you.

Bottle from BevMo Tucson. Pours golden with a thin white head. Not much on the nose. There’s some clove on the tongue but it’s pretty bland. clean Finish. Not my favorite Hefe by any means.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22oz bottle, thanks to Radarsock. Thin white head, that fades a bit. Somewhat hazy golden color. Little lace. Good banana aroma! Nice lighter carbonation. Crisp texture, more on the dry side. Great lightly sweet taste, good light bit of zestiness. This really is an awesome hefe. Easy to drink, and reasonably refreshing - nice to enjoy with the second half of a subway sandwich (turkey bacon jalapeno)

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Sampled on tap at Sleepy Dog; March 2011
This beer arrives with a touch of haze in its lighter gold body that sits underneath a pale head. A big, buttery, diacetyl note in the aroma is backed by a notes of dishwater and perhaps a hint of grassy grain. After searching for some beery notes for a while I get a hint of some clove and bubblegum like aromatics.
The flavor has a creamy texture / slickness to it with flavors of sweet corn and a slight tinny / metallic note in the finish. Clove flavors linger on the tongue for a bit and there is a soap like flavor to this as well. My first sip also has lots of buttery diacetyl in the middle that lingers through to the finish. The clove does take over eventually though. Lots of diacetyl in this beer means that it boosts the slickness and body of this brew. No real wheat or grain flavors are noticeable underneath the dominant flavors.
