Wheaty aroma. A little bit of clove in there. Light body. Wheat notes, and a slight lemony hint. Still, an abnormally restrained version of the style. Smutty is still a hit-and-miss brewery to me.

Nice banana nose with a light spicey end. Hazy yellow in colour. Crisp malts and light spices, with a touch of lemon, some bananas. Light bodied. Honest.

on tap- Yeast creates a banana-cinnamon aroma. Flavor is creamy-peppery. A well done beer that didn’t lose as much as many people have described from the bottled and shipped version, just not to my taste.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Hazy, light yellow lager with a large, frothy, white head. Good lacing.
Dictionary definition of how a hefeweizen should smell. Clove, apple, pear, banana... even a hint of bubblegum. Well-balanced, lemony, spicy flavor. Medium-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and lively carbonation. Lengthy, dry finish.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Slightly hazy but near crystal clear, not much in the way of head. Little aroma, touch of yeast and a bit of zesty citrus but not much in the way of flavour. On the thin side, expecially for a hefeweizen. Almost diluted..

Pours a lightly hazy golden with a nicely lacing white head. Aroma is semi-sweet, yeasty, and peppery with hints of citrus. Starts with a hint of wheaty sweetness turning more dry and peppery toward the semi-tart finish. Has some nice mild banana flavor. Could use some more sweetness and a touch less citric tartness with more bready yeasty character, but still a decent brew.
