Looks like fizzy liquid honey in my wine glass, with a vortex of tiny bubbles swirling up to join a moderately dense head.
Smells of citrus and mild spicyness with a hint of banana. Nice.
Tastes...well...fruity. Refreshing, and very straightforward. Balanced very nicely. This tastes like a straight-up snappy dry hefe the way I would imagine them to be. It's very good, with a pleasantly lingering finish.
Mouthfeel is really quite nice, particularly for a hefe. It has strong presence, and a bit of creaminess you don't always get in these guys. Really nice.
Good drinkability here. Seemed to get better as it went on...I could see these following each other. Definitely would drink again.

A: full, frothy, slowly dissipating eggshell head; cobweb lattice lacing as the head recedes; hazy straw, with the final yeast pour creating wisps like cirrus clouds
S: yeast, bread, lemon, banana bread and cloves
T: malt, yeast, orange, cloves, faint bubble gum
M: medium-full-bodied; a bit of carbonated and acidic bite, at first in the rear sides of the mouth, but then spreading to the tongue; dry
O: a remarkable hefeweizen. I might be selling it short by withholding fives, but I'll certainly be revisiting this one and will reconsider.

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!
