A: A cloudy light copper beer. The creamy light tan head has an goo retention and leaves some lacing on the glass.
S: Light notes of clove with a light fruitiness and a slight tartness. There is a light melanoidin and crusty bread grain aroma with German malt character along with some wheat malt sweetness. No hops and no diacetyl.
T: Nice, a malty hefe-weissen showing the rich and darker German malt character. There is the melanoidin, crusty bread and wheat malt flavors over a moderately-low hops bitterness. There maybe a moderately-strong spicy hops flavor mixing with the clove phenols from the yeast. The yeast also provides a moderately-low fruit flavors mostly banana. The balance is slightly malty with a slightly sweet finish and quick bitter aftertaste.
M: A moderately-light bodied beer with moderately-high carbonation. There is a crisp quality and no warmth nor astringency.
O: This is a Hefe with moderate dark malt characteristics and a little less clove and banana then a straight Hefe. Spice and fruit still dominate most aspect of the beer.
