Bottle purchased at Beers of the World in Rochester, NY.

Pours a hazy yellowish-orange, with a really big 3 inch head, with minimal lacing. Nice visible carbonation, as is standard for the style.

Strong smells of wheat, with weaker smells of banana, cloves and other spices.

The banana is much stronger in the taste- just an incredible explosion of it, along with bubblegum and cloves. Lots of sugary tastes as well. Tastes exactly like a souped-up imperial version of their classic hefe.

Medium to full bodied, sticky sweet mouthfeel, great carbonation.

Like the original hefe better for its understated subtle complexity, but this one is great too.
