Not a bad hefe at all but a little too much carbonation and not enough banana flavor to get a flawless score from me. I would definately drink it again but I think I like Sierra Nevada kellerweis better and even hoffbrau.

Hazy, golden orange appearance. Wonderful, towering, billowing, white smoke-like head. Excellent retention. Produces a few lace patches.

Aroma of fresh wheat, yeast and citrus with a mild spice. Perfect.

Flavor follows the nose almost to a T with just a tad more yeast quality. Can detect some cloves, pepper and coriander.

Medium bodied. Snappy carbonation. Crisp finish.

Very well crafted hefeweizen.
