look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4
A 2" head of fine, dense bubbles over a cloudy straw color. Head stayed as I drank through most of the glass with a coarse lacing.
Smells of citrus, a kind of malty sweetness & grass.
Taste is lemony, some spice (clove?), nicely effervescent with banana esters kicking in later and becoming more noticeable as the brew warmed up. Complex and fairly well balanced, although the banana got a bit much for me at the end. Aftertaste was like liquid banana bread.
A medium body, smooth but not quite creamy feel.
Very drinkable, a great flavor, a great thirst quencher.
Serving type: on-tap

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!
