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.

Very refreshing, but a bit too sweet for my taste. Still, it's a very good wheat beer that I could easily have again.

Extremely smooth and easy to drink. No bitter notes can be found whatsoever. Heavy banana notes on the nose and on the taste. No alcohol taste coming through.

Reminds me of my journeys in Deutschland! One of the few beers that tastes identical here as it does there that's readily accessible. For those reasons, it's my favorite and go to German beer!
