Reviewed from notes.
Bottle brought home and poured into a weizen glass.
The appearance was a soft semi-cloudy pale yellow/orange color with a two finger white foamy head. Stringy sliding lace.
The aroma bled of sweet wheat malt, nice balance of clove, light bubblegum and normal amount of banana esters.
The flavor blended the sweet to the spice exactly the way I wanted and expected it to be with a shining example of the expected sweet wheaty bite just nipping the tail of the aftertaste and giving off that quick wheaty sweet to spicy clove of a finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a medium on the body with a great sessionability about it. Fairly low yet acceptable carbonation. ABV felt great as projected by the brewer.
Overall, for the style and since this was consumed in a weizen glass, I say yes and a half to this. Probably one of the best brewed true to style hefeweizens by an American brewer. DiarmaidBHK (5078) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 25, 2016
Sampler at brewpub. Pours golden with a white head. Leaves trace lacing in the glass. Solid clove notes on the nose. Lots of banana and clove with a slight bubblegum thing on the tongue. Finished clean. Good example of style.
