4.2/5  rDev -4.8%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Pours hazy golden, , three finger head that lingers, leaves a bit of lacing as it's being drunk

Smell: heavy citrus w/ bready/biscuity undertones, minor bit of banana and cloves

Taste: heavy on the wheaty/biscuity flavor, starts w/ a strong burst of citrus/banana and finishes a little mellower

Mouthfeel: medium body, just right for a good German wheat beer. Moderate carbonation, not too fizzy

Drinkability: Fantasically drinkable.Overall probably the best wheat beer I've ever had - just not "far and away" the best wheat beer I've ever had. Really good though.

Serving type: bottle

4.91/5  rDev +11.3%
look: 4.75 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75

Pours a cloudy, orangish yellow color in a weizen glass with a really nice head that leaves a little lacing on the glass as it disappears.

Smell is excellent. I get that classic hefeweizen smell of clove, and other spices as well as the wheat malts.

Taste is right on target, just as you would suspect from the great smell. I get the spices and wheat malts. Best beer I have ever tasted!

Mouthfeel is great. Good carbonation that really cleanses the pallet.

Overall, really excellent beer. I have only been rating beers a few months but this one is my favorite so far. If you want a good wheat beer you should give this one a try.
