Best before 2012/09. Poured into a hefe glass.
Appearance. Almost luminous translucent orange in color to peach in color. Pours with 3 fingers of dense creamy head. Quite beautiful.
Smell. Contains the usual banana and clove, but leans more toward the banana side. A very light cinnamon-like spiciness rounds it out.
Taste. This one really hits your palate like a wave. A lot of intense flavors come at you very fast and lead right to a very long lingering finish. The most predominant component of this wave lies somwhere between nuttiness (walnut and almond) and over ripe apple and peach. It really has that taste of baked apple that is just cool enough to eat. Complementing this is some spiciness and cloveiness. The nuttiness really subdues and smooths out everything. The finish, as stated before, is long and lingering with remenants of the apple and some pear flavors. It is also relatively dry.
Mouthfeel. Tight carbonation is not creamy, nor is it prickly. It has well defined, but tight bubbles. Behind that is a fairly thin body.
This one really proved to me how different these beer can really get. The presence of the yeasty flavors in this one are really quite palate punching.

great looking, pale tan and hazy, good head and lace.
Sweet yeasty and bready flavors and aromas. Clove and banana. A good portion of wheat. Standard hefe deliciousness, a very tasty one.
body is super drinkable and yet slightly chewy like a good hef should be.
Overall it's a very enjoyable brew that I'll have again.
