COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This medium to full-bodied beer, pale to golden in color, is most accurately described as a Bavarian wheat beer. The aroma and flavor of this unfiltered beer is decidedly fruity and spicy evoking tastes and aromas of cloves, nutmeg or sometimes vanilla with banana-like esters. Somewhat sweeter in style with a barely noticeable tartness. An award winning Hefeweizen from the heartland.

ccex (1267) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 4, 2017
12 oz, can pours a hazy light golden color with a few white bubbles, but basically no head. (I then looked at the bottom of the can to find "canned 06/16/16" stamped there). Aroma is of wheat, lemon, and banana. Taste is sour. Body is light to medium with very lively carbonation. A real disappointment, but I should have checked the date first.

Draft at Taco Mac Chattanooga. Pours light yellow with a white head. Leaves some lacing in the glass. Nice banana notes on the nose. More of the clove element comes out on the tongue. Nice example of style.
