Poured from a 500mL bottle into a snifter. Bottle is dated July 2012.

A: Cloudy honey/amber color. It's got a nice, white 2 finger head. Good retention and lacing.

S: Banana, malt and cloves. The banana is incredibly pronounced.

T: Immediately there is lots of fruity sweetness. It gives way to some spices, cloves and coriander. There's a bit of some malt flavors throughout.

M: Relatively big bodied thanks to wheat. Well carbonated.

A very good, classic hefeweizen.

Probably one of the first Hefeweizens I had ever tried. This beer pours out as a cloudy looking yellowish gold color with a thick billowy white head on top. The smell of the beer is grainy, it's got hints of banana and clove in it. The taste is similar to the nose, it's got a soft fruitiness to it and some grains as well. The mouthfeel is pretty thick feeling which surprised me, it's almost got an oily feel to it, making this beer very enjoyable. Overall I feel that this beer is a really good choice for to have if there is someone interested in trying German imports.
