look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5
A - Pours a translucent amber color with a thick white foamy head that forms ever so beautifully with medium to good retention. Moderate carbonation visible in this not-as-hazy brew (4.5)
S - Pleasant upfront notes of banana phenols and spices; bready wheat malts and yeast show up underneath with just a dash of citrus (4)
T - Pronounced upfront flavors of bananas with a mild and pleasant touch of sweetness which is gradually lifted to review hints of malted wheat and a fair bit of spices; yeasty bready malt flavors accentuate towards the finish along with a return of the banana phenols and a dash of fruitiness to give the taste a grand finale (4.5)
M - Between light and medium bodied with minimal carbonation and a beautifully crafted foamy smoothness. (4.5)
D - One of the best if not the best German Hefe Weissbiers I've ever had; top class flavors and mouthfeel definitely grants this beer a top class drinkability (5)
Note: For the record, the best before date indicated on the bottle is for 02.04.08. I am more 2.5 years late in drinking this but it is still so good.

Pours a cloudy yellow with shades of gold. Forms a very nice head which very slowly dissipates leaving some very nice lacing.
Very nice mixture of wheat and citrus, lemon stands out.
Well balanced flavours of wheat and lemon. Incredibly easy drinking and flavourful.
Smooth bordering on creamy, medium carbonation with a very smooth finish.
Very nice for a lighter beer, complex while very enjoyable and refreshing.
