3.83/5 rDev -0.8%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4
Presentation: 12 oz brown long-neck bottle with a blurb about the beer on the back ... freshness date notched on the back label.
Appearance: Hazy pale golden yellow with a striking white lace.
Smell: Clove spice twang with hints of banana and pear.
Taste: Creamy and smooth mouth feel with a medium body. Crisp malty texture ... big lively spicy clove bite that rides on top of the rich carbonation. Mildly hopped and a decent amount of residual sweetness in the middle. Bready wheat with drying grain and trace yeast in the flavour finish the brew off.
Notes: Perhaps a touch too sweet though other than that it tastes like a freshly imported German Wheat Beer. A well crafted brew with all of the trademark flavours from the Bavarian Wheat Yeast. Bottled conditioned ... this adds to its complexity and drinkability.

Serving Type - Bottle
Appearance - Golden tan/yellow with a nice 1 inch foamy, white head. Good lacing.
Smell - Lemon and banana. Wheat, yeasty sugars, orange, spices. Floral, bubble gum.
Taste - Grainy, with big wheat presence. Lemon and orange with banana are main fruit flavors. Floral notes, yeasts, and added spices are also tasted. Clove, and a smoked flavor is picked up at the finish.
Mouthfeel - Banana, orange and lemon first coats the tongue. Palate gets a lot more wheat, spices and yeasts. Aftertaste is a little dry, yeasty and floral.
Overall - Not as sweet and refreshing as a lot other hefes' but still good. More wheat up front with some bold spices. Banana is more mellow, as with a lot of hefes are dominated by banana. A good beer I haven't had in ages. Worth a drink for a local beer.
