Poured a finger and half of head on a cloudy medium straw colored body.
The aroma is banana and apricot. Nice.
The taste has some banana, mild sweetness and a chalky mild bitterness. It ran a little watery at the end.
The texture is fizzy and light with moderate carbonation.
This is a good hefe.

Pours a half-finger head that quickly dissipates. Pleasant deep golden color. Aroma is crisp and fruity. Carbonation, quickly followed by a light fruitiness; banana peel, slight citrus and coriander. Full, hearty mouth feel. Overall decent but the flavors seem a little watered down.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Head is initially small, frothy, white, fully diminishing.
Body is dark yellow.
Aroma is lightly malty (grain), lightly yeasty (cobwebs), with a strong note of banana, light note of clove.
Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter.
Medium body, syrupy texture, lively carbonation.
Ultra-simple banana-dominated aroma doesn’t offer much for the nostrils, and the syrupy sweet mouth experience isn’t much fun either. Poor appearance for the style...tiny completely vanishing head is nothing like most Weissbier. A really uninspiring example.
