Pours a hazy yellow-gold color, just as it should. Smells clean and fresh, bready and fruity. Tastes of banana and clove are most apparent. Excellent high carbonation leaves a crisp mouthfeel. Very refreshing and overall leaves a light footprint - nothing is overpowering or overdone. Goes down like silk. You'll want more than one of these.

12oz bottle into a pint glass.

Pours a very hazy dark yellow with just a thin white head. I took off some for this as a good hefe should, IMO, have a thick fluffy head.

Aroma more than makes up for the poor appearance. Tons of banana and clove as well as a little bit of tropical fruitiness.

Flavor continues with banana and clove but there is also a decent taste of ginger from the yeast presumably. More tropical fruit and a little bit of light bready malt. There is a slight tartness towards the finish but it doesn't really detract from the flavor. Hops are practically not existent but there is a pleasant clean, dry finish.

Overall, really one of the better mass produced hefeweizens out there. A wonderful warm weather beer and a great example of the style.
