look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.25

Had both on draft and from the bottle, and either way its great. Ill always be partial to drafts though...

A - Cloudy golden brown body topped with a meringue-like head. Carbonation is strong and lasting, lacing down the glass is excellent.

S- Benchmark hefe smell; dried wheat, banana, clove and muddled citrus.

T - Slightly sweet and sour with the banana and clove present throughout. Topped off with a citrus tang.

M- Expertly done throughout.

O - The benchmark Hefe. Can find a lot of more expensive ones, but not many better ones!

look: 4.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

I'm reluctant to give out perfect scores, but this beer definitely deserves one, as it proves to be the standard for the style. I'm a huge Hefe fan and this one truly delivers.

a: Golden yellow with a fair bit of cloudiness too it.

s: Smell for this one is more subtle than I was expecting, but it is a pleasant one.

t: This is where the beer excels. Perfect balance of all the flavors, no one flavor is left out to dry. From the initial flavors to the back pallet the various flavors come to the foreground at one point or another. Love it.

m: Full. The carbonation lasted throughout the experience.

o: I honestly don't see anywhere this beer could improve and for that, I need to give it a 5. overall.
