12 ounce bottle poured "mit hefe" into a weizen glass.
A - Two fingers plus of fluffy show white head. As usual the wheat helps a big head form and stay atop the cloudy golden brew. In a weizen glass with a good swirled yeast pour, this beer is exactly what a hefeweizen should look like.
S - Yeasty smell with a nice nutty tone. Tiny bit of banana and spice in there as well,
T - A very easy going, refreshing flavor with just enough of a clove flavor coming over some nice slightly fruity sweetness. A bit of banana and tiny hint of bubblegum come through as well before the brew finishes with a tart subtle bite.
M - Very smooth, fairly creamy yet light feel with just the right kiss of carbontation.
D - Bring on more. A perfectly balanced hefe that has the banana and spice flavors but remains refeshing enough in flavor to make an excellent session brew.

4.54/5 rDev +2.9%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5
appearance- golden yellow with an extremely slight amber hue in the middle. Foamy, two finger head produced.
aroma- sweet notes of wheat, orange/banana
Taste- Very similar to nose and par for the course with the expected hefe flavors. Where this is unique is that there is a slight vanilla flavor that melds perfectly with the creamy texture of the beer.
Feel- As stated before this has a great creamy texture, while being clean and incredibly drinkable.
Overall- Great beer and certainly one of, if not, the best Hefe's I've tried so far. The vanilla creaminess aspect definitely separates this from the pack.
