Beer pours a golden yellow in color with a huge head that dissipates quickly. Decent lacing left in glass. Beer is not as cloudy as some of the better German Hefeweizens. Smell is of subtle bubblegum and banana. Taste is of banana and slight clove flavors. Mouth feel was not as great as other German wheat beers, a bit thin for my liking.
Not a bad beer, but definitely not the best German Hefeweizen out there, I can name several which a much better. I would like to see more balance in banana/clove taste and more yeast in the beer to attain the full mouth feel and taste of the beer.

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.

12oz. bottle poured into a hefe glass.
A- gorgeous dark gold with orange hints, cloudy, especially after the swirl and dump at the bottom of the bottle.
S- some yeasty sweetness, spices, mainly clove, hints of lemon peel.
T- some banana bread sweetness up front, then you get the hints of spice (cloves mainly), hints of bubble gum. Good flavors, I just wish the flavor intensity was ramped up.
M- Pretty heavy for a hefe, very active carbonation.
O- It's good, but is a notch below it's German counterparts.
