One of life's simple pleasures, maybe not to simple. This beer has head for days, I got a little carried away in the pour and had to suck the overflowing head. Needless to say the head is better than three fingers of dense foam. The color is slightly hazy, matching a 10 on the SRM beer color chart. Very sticky lace that clung to the glass to the end. Smell is fascinating, with aromas of banana, cloves, tangelo, peach, and sun dried sweet wheat. Taste is almost beyond words and this is from someone who is not much of a fan of wheat beer. There are a myriad of flavors weaving in and out of each mouthful. There is banana, cloves, orange, lemon, vanilla, cinnamon, did I mention banana, well it was just great. Mouthfeel is very full and creamy, with lots of tingle. Just a pleasure to drink. Hard to come by or I would have much more of this.

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!

4.35/5 rDev -1.4%

16.9oz bottle at 41 F poured into pint glass. Bottle code is 3363, but I don't have a clue what that means. I would probably guess early December 2013.
Pours cloudy golden with a big white head that dissipates quickly, lots of carbonation. Smell is banana, clove, fruity, yeast, bread, lemon. Smells good.
Taste is all of those things but muted and mild, maybe a little too watery (which may be right for the style, and just out of my preference), but really an excellent combination of flavors.
Mouthfeel is thick, creamy, and satisfying, while somehow still light and airy. Overall, excellent beer.
