3.15/5 rDev -21.1%
From bottle at the 2014 German Bierfest (ATL).
Hazy light amber with a decent head.
Light body with crisp medium plus carbonation.
Light clove, typical banana, and high tartness for style. A pretty good mix of flavors but would prefer more malt and less banana.

The beer poured a hazy straw yellow with a significant fluffy white head with little retention. The aroma was pure hefeweiss with strong notes of banana and cloves, but more on the spicy clove side. The taste was light and refreshing with more of the signature Hefe banana and cloves and a hint of bready wheat. The body was less creamy and more effervescent and the low bitterness made for a refreshing drinking experience.

I had this beer once in a four pack that a friend bought for me and was very impressed
Normally, I am not impressed with hefes in bottles, but this was an exception
Poured a nice three finger German head into a wheat beer german glass. Head was impressive, lasted and very distinctive German weissbier mushroom top bloom. beautiful hazy yellow.
Aromas of cloves, bananas and just a faint third spice (grains of paradise?)
Taste follows the nose, with just a hint more citrus
Mouthfeel is full but crisp and refreshing
Overall, I think this is my favorite Hefe-weissen in a bottle. My only regret is that I look for it all the time, and it is hit or miss, the Dunkle is usually whats in stock at least in Atlanta….It left a good impression, because I look for it all the time
