I may not be rating this as high as most people on here, but that definitely does not mean I dislike this. Good beer all around.

Half liter bottle poured into weiss glass. Appearance is cloudy orange, with a towering three finger head that has some stickiness. Aroma is textbook, banana and clove spiciness plus wheat and malted sweetness. Flavor is malty and yeasty with sweetness and spice. Lemon, banana bread, clove, alcohol, and just a fuzz of hop bitterness. Medium bodied, creamy texture, soft but abundant carbonation, drying finish. Perfect for the style and excellent overall.
