This is a truly world class beer and the most outstanding Hefeweizen I have ever had! This great elixer poured a perfect hazy golden color with a great big fluffy white head that slowly faded into a slight layer of froth on top the beer. The smell was so good I could have sniffed it all night long! It had a great spice character along with a room filling aroma of clove and bananna and a great bready character as well. The taste was heavenly and just erupted in my mouth with a nice citrus twang in the beginning, followed by a rush of bananna, clove, malt and a great prickely mouthfeel that seemed to excentuate the flavors. If you ever have the opprotunity to get this stuff, do yourself a favor and sample a beer at the top of its field!

Absolute quintessential heffeweisebeer; the creme de la creme of beers. Flavor, look, body, nose and finish are world class. You simply cannot deny the excellence within the bottle, try as you may.

Poured into a hefeweizen glass.

Pours a beautiful unfiltered gold color with moderate carbonation and a nice white head. The aroma is very refreshing with a strong sense of clove, fruit and a bit of floral notes. The initial mouthfeel is actually quite sour, but finishes sweet with a strong taste of banana and citrus. Definitely tops my list as a great hefeweizen, I could drink this all day.

On tap at Mr. Dunderbaks, served in a Weizen glass and a side of bratwursts and warm potato salad.

A- A beautiful golden yellow with a multiple finger head that lasted the entire beer. Was easily one of the more beautiful beers I have enjoyed.

S- As mentioned it does have a very nice hint of banana and wheats.

T- A very nice critus taste of some orange, but mostly banana. As well as a nice spice that hits the tongue as it goes down. Very delicious.

M- Smooth, crisp, and refreshing.

D- Drinkability is off the scale. And is my favorite hefe, and could make a great session beer.

Over all: A must try for anyone looking for a great hefe or wheat beer. I can't wait to try one again.
