Poured on-tap at the brewery and served in a Weiss vase, the beer is an opaque, hazy, pale yellow coloring with a filmy, clingy, tall white head. Nose of banana, lemon, and hints of clove. Flavors are banana crème forward, with subtle spices, and toasty highlights. Smooth, creamy body. The aftertaste is roast and spice, with banana rich throughout. Smooth, sweet, clean finish. Solid brew.

Serving type: on-tap

At the taproom. Bright straw yellow and gold. Finger of white. Stuck tithe glass a bit.

Aroma, very grainy, some clove. Minimal bannan which I prefer.

Taste, a grainy wheaty malt, very light sweetness. Nicely spiced similar to bannana bread. Maybe a little citrus zest. Not just bubblegum and bannana like most poor American versions.

Crisp and refreshing. Carbonation is spot on, drinks very easy. A must for anyone who likes a good low hop German Hefe.
A style I would expect Old Meck to nail and I believe they did.

Serving type: on-tap
