On-tap at Beachwood BBQ,
A: Pours a cloudy yellow with small smattering of bubbles out of the tap.
S: Banana esters certainly, baked bread, cereal.
T: Heavy on the banana and very full flavoured. Bubblegum in there as well, pastry bread, really no clove. On the sweeter side of this style, probably the best tasting hefe I have ever had.
M: Light-bodied, crisp, refreshing, not really yeasty at all.
D: An outstanding hefe, I think the freshness really helps it compared to its German counterparts. Never had anything from Mission before, but I was quite impressed with this brew.
Serving type: on-tap

Pour rises up into large fizzy head, but rapidly dissipates - almost no lace. Initially clear but murky after adding yeast from bottom of bottle. Nose of clove, over-ripe apples, mildly peppery phenols - very promising. Carbonation is a bit fizzy and rough, not creamy. It's a bit unsettling. Flavor is yeasty and a bit quite sour with a bit of spiciness. Finish is dry with white pepper and lime. I like the beer. It is very refreshing. But when Mission Brewery says on the label that the beer is a "German-style wheat beer", I would have to say that Mission did not quite hit the mark for the hefeweizen (at least not how it is interpreted at this time.)
