This Hefe just hits home with me. That European style with flavors of clove and banana is just so much better then the orangey flavor like in Blue Moon (personal preference). The finish and aftertaste is great too, hangs on the palate for just the right amount of time.

Bottle. Banana, pineapple, clove, and wheat malt aroma. Cloudy golden yellow with moderate head. Tart lemon, orange, banana, clove, and wheat malt flavor. Nice body. On the drier side - very good.

Tap. Hazy golden, yellow pour with a slick of white foam. Aroma is bright banana, clove, and clean wheat malt. Taste is heavy on the banana and clove up front with slightly bitter spice toward the finish. Light, airy mouthfeel. Refreshing, well made, and true to style. Excellent!

(Draught at our hotel). Pours cloudy yellow with creamy white head. Aroma has loads of ripe banana, clove, wheat and a bit of bubblegum. Taste is semi-sweet with light bitterness. Medium bodied with thick texture. Smooth, yeasty finish. Pretty good hefeweizen!

Pale yellow cloudy body, thin white head, aroma is straight up bavarian style banana and clove, flavor is clove and mild banana flavors, palate is nice and full, some wheaty spritz, a very nice example of a bavarian style hefe, exactly what it should be

Hazy yellow pour from sampler. Nice banana clove thing going on with a nice malt backbone and a little bit sweet. Enjoyable.

Bottle from Total Wine Huntington Beach. No clue on how long itís been sitting on those shelves, but based on the other bottles I bought probably mid-2012. Anyhoo, this pours a beautiful hazy golden amber. Not as big of a head as I like, but itís foamy and off-white. Nose is sweet and wheaty, but a bit subdued. Not the in-your-face bubblegum and banana that some hefes are. Some mineral, white grape, pear, and subtle clove spicing. Taste is the same, with the sweet fruity wheat transitioning into canned pear and lightly spicy clove. Mineral throughout. Again, not much in the way of banana or bubblegum. Big thick body with ample smooth carbonation. Solid all around, but I like a little more pungency in my hefes.
