22oz bottle purchased as a single from somewhere localish.

Poured into an imperial pint glass, formed a 1/4" bright white head over the cloudy golden brew. Head is promptly down to a skim, with fluffy lasting lace. Aroma is clove and bananas, as it should be.

Taste starts sweet, cloves in the middle, bananas through the close. Mouthfeel is smooth, and drinkability is easy. Good brew, most all as expected, and local sourced ingredients are just a bonus.

Tap at peppercorns

Pours a big fluffy 1 finger head that rises over the top of the snifter, fades semi slowly with nice lacing, hazy cloudy hefe looking, golden carrot orange color.

Nose starts with typical hefe aromas, plenty of wheat, light banana, hint of clove, light floral spices and light floral hops, light creamy fluffy malt.

Taste is a bit different, it has some of the hefe flavors, light wheat, banana, citrus with slight orange and lemon zest, and hint of clove, but that starts light and comes on stronger towards the end. In the middle is a nice malty ale, with toasty and grainy pilsner like malts, a light creamy ale taste, and more of a clean crisp flavor. There are light fruits and some very light grassy floral hops. The finish is much more hefe, with a slight sticky but dry finish, long lingering wheat and some banana, hint of spices, and stronger bitterness. Orange citrus flavors really come on towards the end.

Mouth is med bodied, fluffy and creamy, with lots of carb.

Overall pretty good, it takes the nicer parts of the hefe and cuts down the overbearing parts with a nice toasty ale in the middle. For me hefes are tasty but, surprisingly, not that drinkable since there is so much going on, bitterness, spices, citrus, thicker mouth coating etc, but this helps make that go by much easier.
