22floz/650ml bottle into a weizen glass; served cold. Aroma: Lots of yeast. A little spice. Appearance: Super hazy yellow-orange body with a moderate, but dissipating, white head. Taste: Wow! Lots of flavor in this one. Lots of cloves. Theres definitely some banana too, and a little tartness to round it out. So much flavor!! Palate: Light-medium body, short finish that ends on spice. Overall: Such a fantastic hefe. It is bursting at the seams with wonderful flavors.

Pours a cloudy pale straw with a flimsy white head that is true to style. Smells great: hay, floral, banana, bubblegum... Taste is very well balanced with a nod to sour. Clean fresh palate with just a little stickiness. Slight coppery aftertaste mouthfeel? Its a good hef. My favorite offering by JJ to date?

Hazy light gold with a thin foamy white top. Brisk corianderish wheaty nose with a nice sunshiney quality about it. Smooth wheaty bright flavor thats golden and slightly citric with orange peel and a dose of coriander...kinda like a Blue Moon but more wheaty and German instead of Belgian. Nice and mellow but flavorful.

BeerandBlues2 (13056) - Escondido, California, USA - JUL 30, 2016
Can at home. Pours hazy yellow with a medium, bubbly and fizzy white head, medium-short retention with light lacing. Aroma is spicy cloves and light bubble gum with bananas and earthy wheat malt. Flavor is spicy cloves, bubble gum esters, light banana and citrus with earthy wheat malt and a dry finish. Light body and moderate carbonation.

12oz can pours with a pale gold colored body that has a light haze and supports a tall off white head of foam. The aroma offers up sweet sugary malt infused banana, earthy banana, a bit of lime and stale hay to go along with a mild yeastiness at the end of the draw. The taste delivers loads of sweetness peppered with chunks of sweet banana and then balanced by a nice somewhat sweetened juicy lime like note. To midway it gets softer on the palate as the wheat kicks in and as the modest citrus like juiciness ramps up a notch or two. Pretty nice but overall too sweet.

Sampled on draught in Las Vegas. Hazy golden colour and a taste dominated by cloves and banana. Quite refreshing, but not especially characterful. Not bad - quite German-tasting, actually.
