16 ounce bottle into weizen glass, bottled on 8/16/2012. Pours very hazy golden orange color with a 1 finger dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of ripe banana, pear, apricot, apple, orange peel, clove, wheat, honey, bread, light bubblegum, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of malt, and fruity/earthy yeast ester notes; with solid strength. Taste of ripe banana, pear, apricot, apple, orange peel, wheat, honey, bread, clove, light bubblegum, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Lingering notes of banana, pear, apricot, apple, orange peel, wheat, honey, bread, light clove, light bubblegum, herbal, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice and pleasant complexity and robustness of malt and fruity/earthy yeast ester flavors; with a good malt/yeast flavor balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth, crisp, and lightly creamy/bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming present after the finish as expected of 4.2%. Overall this is a nice hefeweizen. Good balance and complexity of malt and fruity/earthy yeast flavors; with good robustness for the ABV and very smooth drinking. A nicely enjoyable offering.

On tap at the Mineshaft in Hartford. As "crafty" as they get, but the pizza was fine. Pours yellowish orange with a white head. Some nice lacing. Aroma has bananas and lemon and clove. Taste follows, although less banana-y and more clove-y. Light bodied. Sweet and quite dry. Shrug, could be worse on a hot day.
