Probably my favorite non-gumballhead wheat beer. Pours a golden color with small head. Nose of citrus and bigger banana notes of clove. Flavor similar but really nice going down. Tasty.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
(22 oz. bottle via trade with <A HREF=http://www.ratebeer.com/ViewUser.asp?UserID=3 target=blank>EithCubes, thanks Mike!) Smooth and peppery...Pours cloudy light yellowish amber with a tall off-white head. Large head quickly starts to dissipate. Aroma of citrus, banana and light caramel. Mouthfeel is smooth, light but enough heft to create a nice texture. Flavor is refreshingly citrusy with a little banana and very nice pepperiness appearing towards finish. Best-flavored German hefe I’ve had so far and one of the more "accessible", easy-drinking ones I’ve had.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Bready malt and strong citric wheat aroma with nice tartness. Very fruity (!) with a nice minerally yeast. Cloudy golden pour with a soapy, fizzy white head and strong carbonation. Taste loaded with slick, malty banana and spritely citrus, wheaten aftertaste drying out heavily into pretzellous bread. Yeast and mouthfeel aren’t as good as expected - thinner and slightly waterier than expected. Good, flavorful, all-purpose wheat, but probably around avg in the German context.

Bottle courtesy of crizay. Pours amber with a white head. Smells of bananas, some cloves, some citrus, some fruit. Tastes of sweet wheat, some bananas, and some citrus. More of an American wheat than a hefeweizen, but still pretty enjoyable.
