12oz bottle at fridge temp served in a hefeweizen glass.

Appearance: Light straw colored. pale and hazy (I stirred the yeast at the bottom and added it as you should). Creamy head of medium bubbles that sank to a rim around the glass.

Nose: Bready, Malty, banana, clove spiciness.

Taste: Light and refreshing, very low hop bitterness, bubbles lift from the tongue and delivery the classic banana and clove flavors associated with a hefe. This is very classic to and a great example of the style.

Finish: very short (1-3 seconds then gone)

Poured from the bottle into my Delirium tulip.

Appears an amazing golden hazy color with a slight orange tinge. Impossible to see through. Big fluffy white head dissipates quickly.

Smell is delicious. Slightly tart with typical belgian yeast smells - banana, clove, orange - slight tartness.

Taste follows smell to a T. Very refreshing - yeast qualities not overwhelming at all.

Mouthfeel is nice and creamy.

Overall, fantastic example of the style. Not my typical style of beer but this one is good!
