look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

500mL bottle into a hefe glass
no distinguishable bottling dates

A: Pours a dark golden, almost copper color with 3.5 fingers width of white head. Head has fair retention before dissipating down. Leaves almost zero lacing.

S: Predominately bubble gum aroma with clove and sweet citrus as well. Lots of wheat characters and some light fruity notes.

T: Taste isnt what I expected from the nose. Lots of wheat and a pale malt profile. The sweetness is on the finish with some banana esters. I also get citrus and a good amount of clove along with some peppery spices. Gets better as I drink, as the spice and sweet citrus become more prominent.

M/D: Medium body, carbonation on the lower end and Id prefer if it were higher, drinkability is average.

O: Good but not great. Certainly worthy of a try, and the price is right, but I'll go with Weihenstephaner Heffeweissbier over this one any day.
