Served on-tap at Pilsener Haus in Hoboken, NJ
A: Pours a hazy golden orange in color with some moderate golden yellow highlights and heavy amounts of visible carbonation. The beer has a two finger tall dense foamy head that slowly reduces to a thick film covering the entire surface and a thick ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate to significant amounts of lacing are observed.
S: Light to moderate aromas of wheat with moderate to strong aromas of lemon citrus and clove along with just a touch of black pepper. Maybe a hint of vanilla.
T: Upfront there are some light to moderate flavors of wheat malts with moderate amounts of lemon citrus. Strong flavors of banana and clove along with just a touch of pepper spice. Slightly sweet with almost no bitterness.
M: On the lighter side of medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Slightly thin for the style.
O: Deviates a little from the traditional smells and tastes of a hefeweizen but it seems to be a little more of a regional speciality - I enjoyed the additional hints of vanilla and peppery spice. Easy to drink and sessionable.
Serving type: on-tap

A- muddy amber. Some carbonation can be seen rapidly rising amidst the yeasty haze. Fluffy light tan head. Great retention, beautiful lacing.
S- yeast, and lots of it. It also has aromas of lemon and banana.
T- bready, yeasty, some vague fruitiness. Citrus, and caramel.
M- light, velvety carbonation. Creamy finish.
O- good, but it lacks depth.
