SRM 5 (cloudy burnished gold) with most of the yeast left in the bottle. A billowing meringue-white head condenses to a puffy pillow after an eternity, leaving dense patches of lace on the Weihenstephaner weizen glass. Lazy carbonation rises from within.
The aroma is against a white bread background with the anticipated banana and clove being fairly subtle. Bubble gum and honeydew were also discernible.
The banana comes forward in the first sip, while cloves remain subdued. A background of vanilla gives way to sharp banana flavors just before a subtle, slowly-fading finish. This Hefeweissen is sweeter than anticipated with a hint of tartness.
Medium to full body with a soft cotton texture. Ample, prickly carbonation. No alcohol. Residual sugar deposits on lips.
This beer serves well as a transition from work into a late afternoon of relaxation. It is especially well-suited to a cool, cloudless blue Friday with light rustling wind.

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.
