An enjoyable wheat. Poured cloudy dark yellow color with HUGE almost out of control head. Aroma is clovey. Flavor is very rich but not overdone clovey/banana flavor with a nice crisp bitter finish. This is up there amongst the many hefe’s I’ve tried.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Poured from a 16.9 oz. bottle into a weizen glass. Color is a golden yellow with notable cloudiness and visible yeast in the bottom of the bottle (poured into the glass, of course). Head is very big, slightly sticky, and white. No lemon added.
Smells of ground wheat with whisps of banana odor and a very slight ester.
Taste starts out with a strong wheat and fades to a more malty flavor, with evident elements of citrus, banana, and cloves.
Mouthfeel is medium weight with lots of carbonation as expected in this type, and a nice smoothness at the end. The initial "hit" of the carbonation and wheat is very refreshing, and the barley notes ensure a finish that’s not too harsh.
Many say that this (and other hefeweizens) is a beer for the hot summer afternoon. I could drink it all day, all year round. Absolutely delicious; light but flavorful. By far the best of its breed.

Orange-gold with large 2-inch white head. Strong nose of creamy wheat. Taste is same as nose with a full mouthfeel and a hint of orange and banana. Extremely drinkable; alcohol is well hidden. Medium carbonation and medium body. Very good.

Bottle. Hazy gold with bg white head. Nose of faint lemon, banana, yeast, pepper, and some sour wheat. Flavor is a nicely balanced combination of all of these, quite spicy on the tongue, and with a biting carbonation and clean finish. Very tasty.
