This Hefeweizen is a bright, clear gold color with a small and wispy white head that keeps a layer up and puts down light spotting.
Particularly in the aroma, the clove and banana come out nicely. Spicing seems to be the major focus, with a bit of a gentle bite always present. It goes mildly floral in the middle and into the finish, while the other elements remain. In the flavor particularly, the clove and banana dwindle in the end a bit.
The feel starts off on the fuller end of a light body but thins out somewhat. It's not soft, per se, but it smooths out with time and is very crisp all the way through.

Nose: banana, fruit, bubblegum, very faint clove, no hop.
Pours hazy amber - not cloudy, under a 3" bone white head that quickly dissipates.
Palate: Banana, bread, bubblegum, wheaty tartness are there but are not as big as in many Hefeweizens. Tastes a little toned down. Would be a good introductory beer fior those not familiar with the style.
Medium full body, effervescent but not creamy.

poured into a pint glass from bottle.

a: poured a nice head but didn't last long. swirled the yeast out of the bottom for a more traditional look.

s: smells like a hefe! light clove and honey.

t: slightly tart, low hop bitterness. finishes clean.

m: light-medium body.

o: very nice beer! easy drinking with alcohol on the low side makes this a very sessionable beer.
