Hazy golden orange colour, 3 fingers of white head, good lacing going down the glass. Smell is yeasty, banana, clove and spicy notes, some bubble gum and malt. Taste has lots of banana, crisp crakery malt, wheaty/yeasty flavours, spicy flavours, clove, vanilla and finishes a little sweet. Med-high carbonation, full feel, medium-full body. I could drink this all day long, textbook hefe, when I'm in the mood for the style one of these is certainly in order.

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.
