12 oz bottle.
Pours a hazy amber-yellow, large amount of head, settles after a bit of time and leaves good amount of lacing.
This is one great smelling, aromatic beer. Bannana cloves, sweetness, citrus and spice come together and produce a very appetizing smell.
The taste is just as good. Of course the sweetness is most apparent, a bit of a citrusy zing as well. One of the best features of this hefe is the mouthfeel, full and creamy with a perfect amount of carbonation, as well as an extremely refreshing taste just make this beer incredible through and through.
It's been a while since I've had one of these and it is even better than I remember. Truly one of the best, if not the best, hefe's I have ever had. Definitely worth seeking out and trying.

I had previously had this bottled, but the on tap version was spectacular. The only thing I could complain about would be the price, but for a beer of this quality to a wheat beer lover like myself, it was worth a few extra shekels. I would order this anytime and anywhere!

16.9oz bottle at 41 F poured into pint glass. Bottle code is 3363, but I don't have a clue what that means. I would probably guess early December 2013.
Pours cloudy golden with a big white head that dissipates quickly, lots of carbonation. Smell is banana, clove, fruity, yeast, bread, lemon. Smells good.
Taste is all of those things but muted and mild, maybe a little too watery (which may be right for the style, and just out of my preference), but really an excellent combination of flavors.
Mouthfeel is thick, creamy, and satisfying, while somehow still light and airy. Overall, excellent beer.
