I have had this many times and finally decided to review it.
Poured into a 23oz. Weizen glass from a 500 ml bottle.
A - Has a orange, blondish color to it that looks gorgeous in a Weizen glass. Pours a huge 3 finger head that retains well. Lacing sticks all over in the glass.
S - Smells of cloves and bananas with, citrus and spice notes also present.
T - Very refreshing citrus taste with banana and cloves following it. Hints of bubblegum on the back palate.
M - Very smooth on the palate. No hop bitterness. Goes down really well on a hot summer day.
D - This is the most drinkable Hefe I have ever had. I have had quite a few and, none come close to the King of Hefeweizens . This is one of my all-time favorite beers. Outstanding.

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.
