This beer pours with a huge, fluffy, white head that dissipates fairly quickly. The head dies down releatively quickly to a nice white topping the beer. The beer itself is a lovely golden hay color. The nose is what I would expect from a Weihenstephan beer, very estery, lots of banana, but also with lots of darker (think candied) fruit smells.

The taste is light and wheaty, for a 7.7% alc beer, this is really really well hidden alc, not boozy at all. The beer has a fairly nondescript flavor, its a little bit sweet up front (no hop bitterness at all) and has a quite sweet aftertaste too.

The mouthfeel here is great, very wheaty and full on the palate.

This is a very interesting beer, I think I prefer the straight up Hefeweizen from Weihenstephan better, but this is a tasty example of a style that is hard to find.

Hazy, yellow color with a one-finger frothy white head. Wonderful aroma of citrus, banana, and clove. The taste is right in line with the smell. Strong yeast flavors that really bring out the banana and spice. Medium bodied and the carbonation was spot on. Dry finish. A delicious beer - very similar to Weihenstephaner Hefeweissbier - that is worth picking up if you see it on the shelves.
