Poured into a weizen glass. Very cloudy orange amber fluid with a massive frothy foamy white head on top of it which lasted til the last drop.
Most hefeweizens smell reasonably similar to me. Pleasant banana and clove smells are present as I expected though I found a stronger more substantial sweet yeasty malt smell than I am used to for the style. Very appetizing on this hot day.
Has a very earthy grain taste followed by a lingering hit of clove spiciness and citric tartness. Rounded off with a nutty yeast flavour. All these flavours balance together exceptionally well. The nuttiness doesn't linger allowing the spiciness and the citrus tones to keep the mouth dry and refreshed and wanting more.
Smooth, good carbonation, good medium to full body. As mentioned earlier this is refreshingly dry.
All I can really say is this is probably the best hefeweizen I can get my hands on here, and I love hefeweizens in the summertime. Refreshing, tasty, thirst quenching and satisfying.

Pours a cloudy, orangish yellow color in a weizen glass with a really nice head that leaves a little lacing on the glass as it disappears.
Smell is excellent. I get that classic hefeweizen smell of clove, and other spices as well as the wheat malts.
Taste is right on target, just as you would suspect from the great smell. I get the spices and wheat malts. Best beer I have ever tasted!
Mouthfeel is great. Good carbonation that really cleanses the pallet.
Overall, really excellent beer. I have only been rating beers a few months but this one is my favorite so far. If you want a good wheat beer you should give this one a try.
