Hazy gold with white head. Smooth ripe banana and a tart citrus/lemon zest. Flavor is fresh lemon zest, wheat malt, and finishes with as faint hop bitterness. Lightly sweet and refreshing. A good example of the style.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Serving Glass: Poured from tap into Pint.
Appearance: Very cloudy orange with thick white head and loads of lacing rings left behind.
Aroma: Major banana, some wheat and very light clove.
Taste: Banana and wheat dominates. Fairly sweet overall. There is some light clove and noble hops, but not enough for my personal preference.
Palate: Fairly full body with moderately high carbonation. Finish is not dry enough; a little cloying.
Overall: Despite my preference for a drier Hefeweizen, this is still a tasty, strong example of the style.

Drinking right now at the release. Very hazy orange pour, little carbonation and plenty of banana and clove aroma. Flavor was great! Orange, clove, banana and good and pleasant funky yeast on the finish. A nice welcome to the summer beer season. Surprised this one isn’t rated higher.

An alright beer. Pour is a light orange with no head. Aroma is a mixture of banana, cloves, yeast and wheat. Flavor is mainly the same of the aroma, balanced nicely. Not a huge fan of banana flavor. Palate is thin and yeasty aftertaste.
