Served on tap at Mulligan's in Hoboken, NJ

A: Pours a cloudy pale golden yellow in color with moderate amounts of visible carbonation. The beer has a two finger tall dense foamy off-white head that I would almost describe as perfect. The head reduces slowly to about 1.5 fingers covering the entire surface of the beer but shows excellent retention qualities. Light to moderate lacing is observed.

S: Moderate to heavy aromas of banana and clove, also there are some lighter hints of wheat.

T: The flavor is very similar to the smell, the predominant flavors are banana and clove (spice) along with some wheat and yeast.

M: Light to medium bodied with moderate to heavy amounts of carbonation. Smooth.

O: This was probably the first German hefeweizen I ever tried, and I thought it was pretty great back then... Turns out that I still think this is a pretty good example of the style. I found it easy to drink, refreshing, and quite sessionable.
