Poured into a half-liter weissbier glass. Produced a nice 3-finger fluffy white head, very persistent, the head lasted a good five minutes and left some very nice lacing all the way to the bottom of the glass. The beer is a golden yellow color, thick and hazy, just as a good hefeweizen should look. The aroma of this beer is huge, with wheat, cloves, malt, some light citrus and just a hint of banana. The clove flavors really shine in the taste, along with some nice citrusy notes and banana, with a very nice sweet malty backbone. The mouthfeel is very nice, medium bodied, creamy smooth on the front of the tongue, with the high carbonation adding just the perfect finish on the back of the palate. This hefe is the standard against which all other hefe's should be measured. A world-class beer at such an outstanding price - I paid about a dollar each - outstanding beer at a super-low price- sign me up!

I honestly can't believe I passed this beer over based on price point for several years (4$ a pint bottle in Washington State). Glorious head that shadows a variable fruit flavored offering. I got green apple, green banana, pink grapefruit/lemon. Champagne bubbly finish. Must try.
