draught. Pours cloudy orange with a tall white head. The aroma is aggressive with not so subtle bananas and cloves. The flavor is again not delicate, but it certainly isn’t overly sweet or spiced. The banana character is quite juicy, some light citrus is present, and grainy, wheaty notes add a dimension to the finish. Quite drinkable.

Draft at NG. Pours a golden copper color with a white head. Has hints of your typical wheat and spice. Good job on this one. Had a kind of a Belgium influence to it. Very smooth, and crisp refreshing fruits. Finished the same.

Draught at the brewpub. Pours cloudy orange with white head. The aroma is orange, slight banana, mild bubblegum, and wheat crackers. The flavor is very bready with some mild fruit tones. Some yeast and sugar is in the finish. Ok.

Cloudy straw-orange pour, minimal sudsy head and webbed lace. Citrus, wheat and clove notes to the bouquet. Great clove and banana notes in the flavor! These accompany, indicative of style, wheat and citrusy (orange-lemon) contingencies. The clove really adds to the finish and after. The mouthfeel is slick to the palate, and went down perfectly for a hot summer July 4th!

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sampled at Brewgrass Fest. Hazy pale gold color with minimal head. Aroma was wheaty, fruity, and a little spicy (just a touch). Had a definate tangy bite in the finish. Not bad, but certainly not my favorite Hefeweizen.
