Shared draft at the brewpub (Sawyer, MI) pours a well hazed dulled golden hue, murky almost with a sizable frothy brighter white head, dies to a good film, laces ok. Aromas are a healthy dose of banana and clove, moving into dry flaked wheat, touches of orange and lemon. Initial is medium bodied offering a significant banana and fruit element, a bit sweet up front, middle shows a bit of flaked wheat, dryness, and clove. Touches of honey, sweeter breads and dough. Backend shows lingering fruity banana and apple esters, no real citrus, a touch of dryness but more sweeter overall. Ok, but a bit off for me emphasizing sweetness.

Tap: Nicely hazy amber hue with a small but fluffy head and spotty lace. The aroma has esters of banana, clove, mint and displays some wheat husks, biscuity malts and a hint of roast. Grassy floral hops note are here and there. Smells like a nice fresh hefeweizen for sure. The taste is fruity, cake, biscuit, spicy and twangy with some grainy notes and a dash of Saaz bitterness. The mouth feel is lively, medium-bodied and slightly astringent. Solid and is slightly off center but pays tribute to the genre well enough. Interesting addition of black malt for sure.
