From a bottle. Pours hazy yellow gold with a fizzy, bubbly white head. Tastes like slightly sour, slightly musky, like wheat and light lemon. Light/medium body and low carbonation. Smells like nutty, malty banana.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
[Bottle] Hazy and golden pour. Pillowy white foam head. Banana and yeast aroma. Taste is pretty decent... more clove, lots of banana and milder bubblegum notes. Wheat grains and mild funk in the finish. OK palate for a US made wheat beer, but thin when comparing to German versions. Tasting notes from 2/2014.

It poured a cloudy yellow color with a white head. The aroma was of banana and citrus with a light wheaty back ground. The taste was similar to the aroma with a very pleasant tartness. Not bad.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
The appearance has a hazy golden orange colored body with a thick two fingered white foamy head that dies within about a minute, some light foamy lacing graces the sides of the glass adequately.
The smell was almost the best aroma combination of a clove to coriander to banana esters - sweet to spiciness - wow, I’m enthralled.
The taste is sweet to spicy through the cloves and coriander to the banana esters. The aftertaste is pretty much exactly the same and just as good with a nice quick dry spicy sweet finish.
On the palate, it sits about a light to medium sort of body with a mostly sessionable aspect to it. Carbonation finishes just right for a hefeweizen as there’s a harsh component and a smooth component that balances just right.
Overall, wow, where the heck did this come from? This is a very well done hefeweizen by an American brewer.

2.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pours over carbonated with a ridiculously tall, airy head that overflows the glass. Aroma is pleasant with strong banana phenols.
Flavor is less pleasant. Suspected lak of temperature control contributing to negative phenols. As the over carbonation subsides, flavor improves but with a swampy aftertaste.
Mouthfeel is slightly too sticky for a hefe and allows the bad aftertaste to stay on the palate.

Pint night at heaven and ale. Great example of a German Hefeweizen. A lot of banana notes. Very thick and unfiltered.
