Presentation: It was poured from a brown 500ml bottle into a tall weizen glass. The abv is listed on the back label (5.1%) but there is no freshness date.
Appearance: The body has an orange/yellow color with a cloudy haze and some visible carbonation. On top I got a thick and creamy off white head. It is long lasting and makes slick lace ring which slowly slide down the sides of the glass.
Smell: The aroma has notes of sweet bubble gum and banana peel with just a light touch of wheat malt.
Taste/Palate: The flavor is not as sweet as the aroma foreshadowed. Tangy wheat meets the tongue first with a light clove banana yeast notes following. A touch of citrus and spicy/leafy hops leads into the finish which is crisp and fairly dry. The firm medium body has plenty of active carbonation give it a lively snappy texture.
Notes: I love the texture and finish on this beer. Some German Hefeweizen beers get a little to slick on the palate but this one is crisp and feels alive with carbonation. Overall this is an outstanding Hefeweizen.
On tap. Fogged orange-yellow, white foam. Aroma: malt, wheat, banana, light acidity, a little whey. Taste: full, malt, wheat, banana, a little smoked cheese. Pleasant. CaskCaptain74 (5) - - JUN 17, 2017 does not count
I didn’t get much of the vanilla notes. It does have the expected banana and clove taste however it was a tad bit too fruity for my liking. The style is pretty spot on though and its a good overall hefeweizen but its not the best hefeweizen I have had. voyageurmike (426) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 14, 2017
Bottle from Just Tapp’d. Cloudy yellow medium bodied with thick white head. Banana and yeast nose, with spicy clove and wheat taste. MartyW (275) - DENMARK - JUN 12, 2017
Clear golden with white head. Wheat with a spicy belgian yeasty touch with some banana. Not really for me... Maybe need to try it again in the future. Beamer (45) - - JUN 9, 2017

As the description states, this beer does have a long-lasting fluffy white head. I detect no vanilla or fruit in the aroma, instead spicy. Like most things, it tastes like it smells - spicy. However, as far as "spicy" goes, it doesn’t overpower, and doesn’t linger with aftertaste. And in fact, though I don’t prefer spicy beers, this wasn’t bad at all. If I had to choose a spicy beer to drink I would probably select this one.
