Poured from an undated 330ml bottle into a pint glass

A: Pours a hazy, golden honey color with a big, pillow head. Settles in the glass looking like cloudy, unfiltered goodness topped by a crown of foamy head. Very attractive.

S: Spicy, medicinal notes grace the nose with heaps of clove and banana. The aroma is rather pronounced and carries pretty far from the glass.

T: This beer nails the art of the hefeweizen with perfect form. Starts with assertive, yeasty spiciness dashed with generous amounts of well balanced clove notes and touches of banana bread. Finishes very clean, much like eating a sliver of ginger root. Intensely refreshing - I couldn't ask for more.

M: Prickly carbonation, lighter bodied, with a well-executed semi-dry finish. Rather slick on the palate going down, leaves a pleasant mark as the flavors flee the tongue.

O: What hasn't already been said about this beer? It is simply the standard by I believe all other hefeweizens should be judged.
