4.33/5 rDev -1.8%
look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5
Pours exactly as expected; a large, puffy white head and a thick, cloudy body that is yellow-orange. A thin film of white remains after the head dissipates. Smells of bananas and other sweet things. Not the slightest bit of alcohol in the smell or taste. Taste largely mirrors the smell. The mouthfeel is a little off-putting. I feel it is too carbonated for the style and makes an otherwise smooth brew a little spiky. Overall, the beer is a classic. It also makes for a good summer beer, nice and refreshing.

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!

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.
