look: 2.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3

Cloudy golden. Low carbonation with no head to speak of. A bit of a lackluster start.

Decent aroma with all the expected character. Light banana and clove with a bit of spicy phenolic yeast.

Mellow taste which lacks some pop due yo the low carbonation. Light soft mouthfeel with a nice sweetness and little hop character.

Well, it's nice, but being SN my expectations were high.

Serving type: bottle

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Bottle: reasonable brown bottle with an original and decent label.

Appearance: quite hazy deep straw colouring with a decent two-finger thick white head. Head leaves reasonable lacing and has great retention.

Aroma: banana and clove as expected, but also hidden spices and tart apples. Quite an interesting combination, if a little restrained.

Taste: follows from the aroma. Some banana, but definitely heavy spices and light floral / fruity character. Lovely version of the Hefe. Could use a bit more flavour / ABV.

Aftertaste: lasts quite a while, with different spices and flavours making themselves known.

Mouth feel: medium in body with a lower carbonation. Could be sessional, but luckily (considering the cost of AU$75 a case) could also be had a couple at a time.

Overall: very good Hefe, particularly for being outside Germany / Belgium. Great banana / clove mix with additional mix of spices and fruits. AU$75 a case (2012) price-tag hurts a bit though.
