look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pours an opaque yellow. Tall, white head.

Smell is banana and clove.

The flavor is the same as the aroma. Bananas and cloves up front.

Typical hefeweizen mouthfeel

It has the makings of a great hefe but it falls a little short. The flavors are good but too subdued.

Pours a cloudy yellow with a good sized white head. Pretty much the classic look for the style.

Smell is of banana, clove, yeast, and bubble gum.

Tastes a lot like it smells, mainly banana and clove. It does finish with a hint of pepper, leaving a slightly spicy aftertaste.

Feel is about normal from the style, carbonation is a little on the light side, but still has a bit on tingle to it.

A decent wheat beer, but nothing outstanding either. It has some nice flavors, they are just a bit too subtle, would have liked to see a more forward flavor profile. This would be a good beer for a hot day, it is very easy to drink, has just enough flavor, and isn't too heavy.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A modest, creamy white head floats above a murky, old gold (SRM 4-5). The head is long lasting and leaves fine lacing.

Clean warm banana bread with bubble gum upon entry. Cloves are present, but clearly a secondary element. Warmth brings out a light, white wine aroma.

The flavor follows the nose closely. It is well balanced with light acid. Sweetness and bitterness are both modest and work well together. The finish is long.

A medium body with velvety texture and no alcohol. There is a touch of a metallic scent with fizzy carbonation.

This is another exceptional summer beer enjoyed from a Franziskaner weizen glass. It is very sessionable and versatile.
