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.

Pours a cloudy orange-ish amber with an off-white head of solid foam. It's probably a touch darker than the average color of hefes that I've tried but in line with the style. Good puffy head. Lots of foam. The aroma is banana wheat sweetness with a nice dash of light lemony sourness. Clove is light but present. Lots of wheaty, sugary flavor. The taste is rather mild, definitely could use a kick. Light sweetness with some wheat spice. Gets a bit watery with a wishy-washy finish. Not as bright as I expected from the aroma. Sort of an off aftertaste. Could be a stale bottle but it got to a local store pretty recently. Feel is smooth with a touch of prickly carbonation, though carb seems a bit low. This beer is mild and a bit lacking. It's easy enough to drink, but it doesn't merit a very high spot in my personal hefe rankings.

500ml bottle. Weizen glass. Amber color. foggy appearance. White, close & lasting crown leaves some s`pots on sides. Subtle candy & yeasty aromas. Crispy, floral & bitter at first rounded by banana hues. Medium body. Moderate carbonation. Dense texture & spicy palate. Estery & malty flavors in the middle but bitter finish. Fruity memories on the aftertaste. Bready & refreshing!!
