One pint .9 oz brown bottle with no date but marked 6228 on the back.
Pored into a weiss glass this beer is cloudy lemon gold with an immense cloud of off white foam. Patches of fluffy lace ring the glass.
The scent is so strong I notice it from a foot away. Lemons, wheat, yeast, fresh dough, coriander, pepper.
Taste is sweet with lemons, green banana, softly sour yeast and wheat, fresh doughy bread. The sour lemon finish tickles the sides of the tongue a minute or two after the sip. Really a vivid sucking on a lemon sensation; nice! Mildly spicy with coriander, clove and black and white pepper. There's also a very soft nutty flavor buried in there.
Mouth is creamy but a tiny bit thinner than I would prefer.
Drinkability is excellent. The beer disappeared rapidly and left me wishing I had another bottle of it.
This is certainly one of the best hefeweizens I've had and I can only dream about how fantastic it must be when fresh off the tap in Germany.

4.54/5 rDev +2.9%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5
appearance- golden yellow with an extremely slight amber hue in the middle. Foamy, two finger head produced.
aroma- sweet notes of wheat, orange/banana
Taste- Very similar to nose and par for the course with the expected hefe flavors. Where this is unique is that there is a slight vanilla flavor that melds perfectly with the creamy texture of the beer.
Feel- As stated before this has a great creamy texture, while being clean and incredibly drinkable.
Overall- Great beer and certainly one of, if not, the best Hefe's I've tried so far. The vanilla creaminess aspect definitely separates this from the pack.
