This beer is pure magic, making me ashamed that it took me so long to try it.
Poured into a pint glass, the beer gave a lemon aroma. I was expecting a sweeter aroma for a hefeweiss, so a tart aroma was somewhat of a surprise. For a hefeweiss, it radiated the expected golden staw color while producing the expected white head. The initial taste makes very apparent an appealing banana yeast flavor. It is sweet, but not overpoweringly sweet. The carbonation could be described as sharp, perhaps even aggressive. It brought to mind the bubbles of champagne. The bubbles nicely sweet away the initial taste to reveal the next level. The aftertaste brought a mild honey flavor with a hint of the spiciness of pepper.
This is one highly regarded beer that is easily available to most people. The price of a bottle makes it look even better compared to a lot of beers.
