Aroma and flavor are decidedly fruity and phenolic --clove or nutmeg-like. Made with 50% malted wheat, hop rates are quite low. Well attenuated (sugar absent as a result of fermentation) and highly carbonated. High starting gravity and malcohol content make it a full bodied beer.

Strong aroma of esthers (banana). Fuller bodied then typical. No detectable hops and very wheaty. Interesting beer but not for me.

This was one of the first hefes I ever tried, and it gave me my first experience with the banana flavor the style carries. Unfortunately, this one’s so strong on the banana that i’ve never had any desire for a refill. Nevertheless, it’s a beer I’ve certainly enjoyed in a single serving.
