Appearance is pale yellow, cloudy, with a thick white foam cap that dissipated quickly for a weizen. Aroma is spicy banana and clove. Taste is a sweet bready malt with coriander like spice with banana. Mouthfeel is slightly creamy. Finishes with a bit of lemony citrus and tartness.

MrBunn (2456) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 26, 2014
Bottle. Pours a hazy light gold with a fizzy head and aromas of cloves and other spicy esters. Flavor is light and peppery, but thin. Kind of like a watered down version of what I would expect from the style. Not bad, but I was hoping for a much more assertive beer.

Bottle and served in my new UB Maifest glass: Expected hazy golden hue with a surprisingly small head and lace. Moderate clove and banana esters along with a tad more hop bitterness than normally associated with the very best of the genre. That "minerally" tone I found frequently in their beers is here too, even a faint hint of band-aid. A nice enough beer but it is not even remotely amongst the top 12 in the world like RateBeer has. I would rather have a Piece Hefeweizen (or if I had access a Live Oak Hefeweizen) over this... or of course any of the great German Holy Trinity of the style.
