Pours cloudy yellow with a fast diminishing white head. Smells malty with spice. Taste is med wheat body with some spice and citrus. After taste is too thin in my opinion. A little watery. But still is "refreshing". Not too bad, but there are better out there.

12oz bottle at Dada’s in Delray. Occasionally Dada’s will have a decent craft beer selection of about 4 bottles. This was a pretty standard Hefe. Served with a lemon on the rim, which I ditched into my water, the aroma was citrusy with hints of orange peel. Pretty good but nothing out of the ordinary.

12 ounce bottle thanks to Dan. Pours a totally opaque orange color with a small white head. A sweet grainy and lemon nose. A strong flavor of bananas, some lemon and spices. A very interesting Hefe, seems like a very traditional version. Light palate and almost no head after a bit. I like it.

translucent gold, large bubbled small white head. Nose is autolysis, light banana, citrus. More wheat early and mid, light banana and run er as well, stronger grain finish. A bit chalky in the finish, gritty even.
