Pours a very cloudy, pale yellowish-orange with a thick creamy white head, an excellent looking wheat beer. Smell is almost overwhelming, strong cloves, corriander, banana and lemon peel. Taste is lots of banana, cloves, corriander, and a bready malt as well as the fruity yeast flavors. Mouthfeel is chewy and crisp, with moderate carbonation, a world class wheat beer. Drinkability is high. Probably one of the best wheat beers, not as banana flavored as some (franziskaner and paulaner) but still excellent.

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.
