A: Pours a hazy light golden color with a big head that fades slowly to ample lacing.

S: Aroma of spice, banana and vanilla with some malt sweetness in the background.

T: Taste of banana, spices and malt sweetness. No real bitterness and a clean finish.

F: Fairly medium body, smooth and refreshing.

O: A very enjoyable beer and an easy drinker. Probably my favorite "Hefe"

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.
