look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75
A - Poured with a thick, off-white head, a good three fingers. Cloudy (but not the cloudiest I've seen in a Hefeweissen), slight carbonation, beautiful copper color. Leaves nice but scattered lacing on the glass.
S - Strong banana aroma; very strong! As the beer sits, the banana fades a little and allows some spice to come through.
T - This is the strongest, clearest banana taste I've had in a wheat beer. Very smooth, not overly sweet. Really only the slightest, barest hint of citrus, no hops, but not a dominant malt; slight, slight toast. Plenty of spice comes through, but not sharp or peppery. A slight sour flavor that grows as the beer warms.
M - A little thin and watery, you can really let your mouth soak in the flavors. A slight warming effect that is surprising, considering the lack of alcohol flavor. Thin enough to gulp, but I wouldn't want to do so.
O - This is a different Weissbier. It still fits for a summer day, but its heavier, smoother flavor sets it apart. I normally smell banana in a Weissbier, but don't taste it so strongly; here, it is the dominant flavor. Not my favorite or go-to Weissbier, but interesting, unique, and worth a try.

Sampled last night on 7/21/14. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured into a "Cheers-Boston' handled glass stein.
Pours a hazy golden pour with a good 2- finger thick head that lasted a while. Left lots of lacing when sipped. Smells of wheat with sweet orange and spice. The taste was pretty much the same and on the sweet side. Very easy to drink and no bad aftertaste. Hefeweizens are all over the board and this one is one of the best!

Poured a nice deep golden color with two fingers of fluffy white head. Quite nice in appearance and very true to form. Scents of clove-like phenols, banana-like esters, hints of bubblegum and some doughy, bready wheat malt. A good aroma that is true to style, though not standout. Flavor begins with a nice sweet banana flavor with hints of clove and grainy malt balancing. In the middle light bubblegum flavors join the banana and clove and add depth. Finish is semi-sweet, with notes of banana, clove, bubblegum and grainy malt. Aftertaste is grainy wheat malt and clove. A good, though basic hefeweizen flavor profile. Mouthfeel is medium-light bodied with high carbonation and a smooth, creamy feel. Quite pleasant and very true to style. Overall this is a good basic hefeweizen that hits the main notes of the style, though it doesn't do a great deal to standout. Still a nice beer and very refreshing in Summer.
