UPDATED: APR 13, 2013 Little bit of cereal body and lacks some of the banana sweetness. Not very hazy and not too much yeast flavor. Other than that well done and enjoyable.

Bottle. Pours a mostly clear golden color with absolutely no head. Nose is very yeasty, with some of the banana and clove that the description mentions. Taste is just slightly sweet. Somewhat heavy feeling for the style.

3.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Yeast orange and wheat on nose. Slightly creamy mouth feel with moderate carbonation. Finishes with yeast, wheat, citrus, slight vanilla, and clove. One of the better American attempts at a hefeweizen. I was surprised at the likeness to a German hefe.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Strong aroma is yeasty and wheaty with an undertone of orange. Pours a clear, rather wan yellow with a frothy white head - let us hope that appearance is the one weak spot. Flavor, fortunately, is better - yeasty and wheaty, a hint of citrus, not outstanding but still refreshing. In the body and fizz departments, mouthfeel is about average. OK if not the best - give it a try if you like this style.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at The Pour House in Westmont, NJ.
Pours a slightly hazy, pale golden yellow color with a one finger, frothy white head that slowly settles into a lasting ring. Streaks of lace left behind.
Zesty spice aroma with some pepper, coriander and clove along with bready yeast, light fruit and citrus. There’s also a subtle banana character but the citrus/lemon and spice notes are most prominent.
Medium bodied but fuller than expected with a really nice balance of zesty spice, bready yeast, light fruit and crisp citrus. Heavily spiced with strong clove and pepper flavor that’s nicely complimented by citrus juice and lemon zest. Slightly tart with some banana and bread notes toward the finish. Well balanced, really refreshing and easy to drink.
