What the brewers say

“Cloudy and straw-colored with a meringue-like head that lingers to the bottom of the glass. Brewed with wheat malt, few hops, and a yeast strain that produces notes of clove, banana, and vanilla.”

What our panel thought

“Light and effervescent, this beer is appealing to all the senses. The fruit esters are medium strong and classic, but don’t overshadow the wheat. High carbonation lightens the body while bringing out the fruit and clove aroma. It’s pretty strongly carbonated, making it a little gassy to drink.”

What our editors thought

“A propulsive aroma with familiar hefe notes of sweet banana and clove melds into a structured body with a touch of hops bitterness that keeps the beer honest and avoids the typical clichés. Like a muscled linebacker, the body is big but lean, efficient, and quick on its toes, and the deft handling of yeast produces a level of sophistication that’s hard to beat.”
