light banana and clove notes on the nose and palate. Classic flavors, but drinks a little watery for the style. Just OK overall.

Cokemonkey11 (457) - - JUN 4, 2016
Can, 330ml. Pours medium pale amber with a thin white head subsiding at average pace. Scent is dense cloves and weizen yeast including full bodied banana and caramel. Taste is medium light weizen with cloves and pepper. Tiny bit of sourness. Mouth feels medium dense but not creamy. Finish is clean. Good.

caesar (6479) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - MAR 9, 2016
Can from Firma Bier, at 4.7%, large sample. Hazy golden color, medium frothy head. Aroma of grainy wheat, spicy, banana, bit clove, brinta, slight citrus. Soft citrussy bitterness, bit tart note even, grassy and grainy wheat. Not as sweet as weizens can be. Decent take on a weizen though.

kramer (5770) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 17, 2016
Tap. Poured a cloudy yellow gold body with a frothy white head that fell to a thin film, some nice lacing. The nose is really nice, very estery with lots of banana and clove, some nice bubblegum as well. Plenty of yeastiness. Light bodied with a soft, almost creamy, texture from the yeast. Fine fizzy carbonation. Really solid Hefe, can’t really pick on this one at all.

Hazed gold pour, fluffy white head. Typical of a good Hefe, it has banana clove and some bubblegum.
