Pours a hazy, straw yellow color with a white head. In the aroma, banana and fruity wheatiness. In the taste, wheaty, small banana, and quite watery and muted flavors. A small spice like bite and a medium to lighter bodied mouthfeel, with a small dry remnants of banana. Better nose and color, quite watery and lack of flavor.

Had this beer right before I drank the Dunkel version of it. This one poured out as a hazy golden color with a fluffy white head on top. The smell of the beer gives off the typical banana and clove aromas that a true hefeweizen should. The taste of the beer has the soft flavors of wheat and grains with just a hint of lemon in there. The mouthfeel of the beer was smooth, lightly carbonated and refreshing. Overall it's a pretty good brew.

Bottle poured into weizen glass: freshness date: Feb 2012

A: Looks like a weissbier, thick three finger head

S: Smells like wheat and barley

T: Tastes like a regular pale lager rather than a like a hefeweizen.

M: Feels like a weissbier, it has that moderate mouthfeel

Overall, this is a most forgettable beer.
