look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Poured from an undated 12 oz. bottle: not quite as hazy as I remembered, the hue was a bright, yellow-golden with a attractive, foamy white head that quickly dissipated.

Rather restrained, sweet and spicy aroma slowly revealed some banana and bubble gum aromas.

This hefeweize is quite refreshing but has too much sourness on the palate. Otherwise, the founded malty mouthfeel has a nice interplay of banana and clove flavors.

The body was a little too thin for the style and the carbonation did not have that spritzy feel I expect from the style. The flavors were short-ived on the palate.

This was the first hefeweizen I tried while in the military back in the 1990s. It is good, but I have tried many better examples since then.
