Why can't every brewery be as good as Brooklyn? I don't mean they are the biggest, richest, most innovative or the nearest by or even the one run by people I have met and liked. I mean good. They are damn good. Solid in that plummy Colonel in the British Army circa 1890 thinks something is good kind of good. I don't think there is one I've reviewed that hasn't impressed me with its delicacy and control.
This one is no different. For a hefeweizen it is not visually impressive, just clear bright golden ale under pure white foam. Hardly the cloudy, sometimes gravy-esque grey brown of some of the greats. But as soon as you open it you can smell the clove and banana that the beer gives off. That's also there in the mouth along with a light but grainy texture that resolves to lemon, twig hops and fresh soft water. Good.
Momentary Lapse Update: swirl the bottle, the cloud forms. Last pour is visually challenged. The yeast adds creaminess.
