11.2oz bottle poured into a weizen glass
A: Hazy golden-orange; even a slow pour forms an incredibly thick head that takes a while to settle
S: Incredibly complex with coriander/clove, wheat, orange, bubblegum, banana. Just wonderful to smell.
T: Virtually identical to the smell, with spice, wheat, banana bread. Only slight complaint is a short finish.
M: A bit watery, but medium-bodied and pleasant overall.
O: Very enjoyable and well-made; a world-class beer.

500 ml bottle. Pours slightly hazy golden straw color with a huge 3 finger dense white head with incredible retention that reduces to a cap that stays for the remainder of the glass. Thick lacing clings around the glass as well, incredible. Aromas of big banana, clove, bubblegum, pepper, lemon, and spicy yeast. Fantastic aromas here with great balance and strength. Taste of big clove, pepper, banana, bubblegum, lemon, bread, and spicy yeast. Light bitterness on the finish that lingers with citrus, pepper, banana, and spices for a bit. Extremely smooth and slightly creamy medium sized body. Fairly lively carbonation that dies down as I make my way through the glass. Extremely well balanced with the flavor profile as well. Overall this is an absolutely incredible wheat beer; and the definition of a hefeweizen in my opinion. I will keep coming back to this one at only $3 for a half liter at the store.

This was the first top 100 beer I ever sampled. Half-liter bottle.

Light cloudiness, but transparent gold to golden-orange. Towering 7 finger thick white head off the first pour. It settled slowly, allowing the beer to warm. Some of the thickest lacing I've ever seen. Carbonation bubbles rise non-stop throughout the beer.

Aroma of sweet banana, citrus and spice (heavy on the clove). Toasted wheat.

Taste of banana and cloves with tart citrus and light toasted malt. Light earthiness.

Rather thick, but silky smooth and creamy. Peppery with warmth in the throat. lightly cloying.

Wonderful, quite a treat.
