Beautiful brew. Excellent fruity yeasty esters. Banana and pear highlights along with a nice balancing act of nutty, bready, honey sweet malts and clove spice. Fruity, crisp, and refreshing. Finishes with a nice flavorful drying quality.

Aroma is predominantly clove-like with soft banana and a touch of bubblegum and yeasty sourness. Pours a frothy, two-finger head with good retention; body is a cloudy amber. Like the aroma, the clove-like quality takes center stage; there is a slight yeasty twang; sweetness is present but nondescript; alcohol only becomes noticeable in the finish, and even then it is remarkably well integrated. The body is medium-full with substantial carbonation which also provides a nice, crisp bite; alcohol provides a bit of dryness in the finish.

Overall, the impression is one of a mere—albeit delicious—hefeweizen with a greater alcohol content. It really doesn't seem bock-like at all, which is the only aspect that I can find fault with.
