Poured into a hefeweizen.
Appearance. Luminous translucent orange hued straw in color. Pours with 3 fingers of head frothy head, which leave ample lacing as it dissipates to a half a finger. Tons of carbonation rises form the bottom of the glass.
Smell. Prominent banana character up front. Bready maltiness behind that along with some clove and other spiciness.
Taste. Starts with a moderate banana flavor and some slight earthyness. A slightly tart and citric flavor cuts this leading to a more clove and spice heavy second half. A low, almost imperceptible level of bitterness is there as well. Some more mild tartness leads into a dry and slightly spicy finish.
Mouthfeel. A huge amount of carbonation breaks up a relatively full bodied brew.
My go to hefeweizen. Highly recommended.
