Pours hazy pale golden in body with frothy white head that leaves plenty of lacing. Beautiful lively looks. Aroma is yeasty, lemon cookies, faint vanilla, orange peel, clove, and banana. The epitome of the hefe. Lemon cookies, juicy orange, faint vanilla, banana esters, mild clove, mild hop character background, and smooth vanilla rides it out. Smooth mouthfeel with mild carbonation. A gorgeous display of what an iconic brewery can achieve.
