Oh, this is good stuff.

Rich, frothy, lasting head. Deep yellow color. You know, not Natty Ice urine yellow, but, hey, this is good beer yellow.

Rich notes of whatever well-balanced wheat and hops these German brewers chose. Specifically, it tastes darn good.

Two finger white head atop a cloudy amber beer. A few minutes in the cap is a foamy ring and nice skim.

Medium aroma, full of clove, with lighter banana, even a touch of biscuit and herb,

Taste better than aroma, standard for style, bready, clove, touch of banana, hint of hop spice, tasty.

A bit overcarb for style, not as clean as you would like, finish ends with some rooty herbal thing going on. Worst feature

Kinda standard for style, but nowadays there are many of these floating around, better German imports, and the American versions fresher, and often much better due to the freshness factor. Not recommended.

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.
