This one pours out a deep, dark yellow, almost but not quite amber,with a thick haze. It develops a very frothy white head that reaches two fingers and shows good retention after receding to one, where it remains the rest of the session. Mostly spotty lacing is left on the glass, but it's thick and heavy, not to mention plentiful.
The first time I had this beer, I was a little surprised to smell the banana and clove typical of particular German lagers, since it was initially miscategorized. As it is, it leaves no doubt as to the style. It's got a very nice aroma, at once light and yet with a certain strength, with the particular yeast making itself well known. Phenols are very pleasant, and a light sweetness to a very nice spiciness underneath adds depth. Wheat and a touch of lemon make for a well-rounded, balanced, and fairly complex beer.
The flavor follows suit with a bit of lemony fresh tartness coming out more strongly along with a green apple . The note along with the spiciness beneath a strong wheat foundation. Malts are a bit bready as well.
This beer is light and crisp and quite dry, though not entirely. It needs no more crispness in order to be as refreshing as it should be. It's not thin, with the light body actually quite deep. It's also smooth, with all the elements working together.

Picked up a can of this yesterday from a local bottle shop, cracked it open and immediately smelled a strong urine odor along with rotten bananas, For some reason I went on to actually taste this abomination of beer, it was like Donkey Kong went on a banana binge and the gave me a golden shower the next morning. Putrid bananas and strong dark urine is all I can think of....but I looked at the bottom of the can once I was done muscling through this beer, since I dont believe in drain pours, and it was canned in July of 2013...7 months ago, I hope thats the problem. If not, I am seriously surprised that this crap came from 6 point
