“A Ger­man-style he­feweizen. Char­ac­ter­is­ti­cally cloudy with notes of ba­nana and clove.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “A big hit of won­der­ful es­ters—es­pe­cially ba­nana—and bub­blegum. Some spicy phe­nols emerge as the beer warms, mostly clove, with a touch of cit­rus and pep­per. Le­mon tart and pas­try fol­low, bring­ing forth Froot Loop aroma, and bready and herbal notes linger be­hind the yeast.” Fla­vor: “Such sub­dued fla­vor, which is sur­pris­ing, given the hint of sour acetic in the aroma. Del­i­cate clove and pep­per phe­nols. Some great cit­rus notes of orange and le­mon de­velop, and even more le­mon in the af­ter­taste. The ba­nana es­ters are on the lighter side, and bal­ance with the sweet wheat and bread crust malts. Creamy and medium-light body, but a dry fin­ish.” Over­all: “The palate is soft, with a sweet body, and com­plex fruity and spici­ness that carry the beer into a smooth, dry fin­ish. While it’s not clas­sic for a hefe, and it’s on the lighter side in body and es­ter pro­file for the style, it’s still a nice bal­ance.”
