11.2 oz. bottle poured into wheat beer glass

L: murky/cloudy yellow-orange yellow; huge fluffy head of white to off-white foam, a full 2 inches tall and so thick it looks like it's never going to fully dissipate; clears up enough (and quickly) to show hundreds of bubbles flying up the column ... holy cow is it awesome! you'd think the bottom of this glass was scored with a CO2 nucleation point, but it's not -- this brew is that carbonated; the head doesn't stick or lace much, but man is it a pretty beer

S: sweet citrus banana-clove mixed with more sugar ... very sweet, at times like bubble gum ... banana-flavored bubble gum; some grain shows through at times but just barely; wheat bread

T: follows the nose with just a pinch of tartness added; banana, clove, orange/lemon citrusy, sweetness throughout, some grain

F: light by still full ... so bubbly but still soft enough to remain super drinkable ... yeah, it's perfect

O: boy is it good ... loads and loads of wheat sweetness with just enough of a tart note to keep it from becoming too sweet; a brew I will revisit over and over and a definite standard I will use to measure other hefeweizens

This one here is really damn good haha.

Just amazing smooth/sweet/citrus/wheat flavor, with slight tartness/grains, rather light yet full at same time.
