22oz. bomber that weigh's in at 5.3%ABV and has 15 IBU's. Poured into a weizen glass a hazy yellow gold with a pure white one-finger foam head. The head disipates to nothing before your eyes making an audible fizzy sound like effervescence.
Sweet fruity nose with wheat and yeastiness. Estery and phenolic sweet fruit aroma, with lots of banana, pear, wheat, yeast and spice of clove.
Sweet and very fruity taste with a bit of spice to the finish. Lots of banana and bubblegum with light caramel malt and wheatness. A light bitterness to the finish with notes of clove and perhaps coriander, leaving a lingering spice on the tongue.
Light-medium body with less carbonation than appears, the alcohol stays out of the picture completely. Overall a fairly sturdy hefe that's quite drinkable...just a tad cloying with the sweetness.

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.)
