Poured into a weizen glass, a good 2 finger head on this one. Body is a little clearer than I would expect for a hefe. A nice yellow gold with that crisp white head.
The aroma is classic hefe weizen with banana and cloves, a little saaz too.
This hefe tastes sweet, with the accent being a banana flavor, the spices and hops give it a nice accent. Finish is clean and crisp.
This feels medium bodied, the carbonation and clean taste leads to a refreshing brew.
As far as drinkability this is a beer that can be enjoyed in looonnnggg session drinking due to it's ease of consumption, moderate ABV and overall refreshing taste.
Overall this is a one heck of a hefe, I'd like to try this on tap. I think this style is better tasting on tap and has more flavor. Still a very enjoyable brew on a hot summer day in June!

A: full, frothy, slowly dissipating eggshell head; cobweb lattice lacing as the head recedes; hazy straw, with the final yeast pour creating wisps like cirrus clouds
S: yeast, bread, lemon, banana bread and cloves
T: malt, yeast, orange, cloves, faint bubble gum
M: medium-full-bodied; a bit of carbonated and acidic bite, at first in the rear sides of the mouth, but then spreading to the tongue; dry
O: a remarkable hefeweizen. I might be selling it short by withholding fives, but I'll certainly be revisiting this one and will reconsider.

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!
