look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from a half liter bottle into a weizen glass - nice two inch fluffy white head, straw yellow and crystal clear. Smell is wheat, banana and cloves. The taste is identical to the aroma, with the cloves and banana very prominent. I also get a big bubble-gum tone as well. The mouthfeel is very nice and light, as a kristalweizen should be. The prickly carbonation adds just the right touch. Overall, this is a very under-appreciated style - everyone has their hefeweizen, this one really fills a niche. Great beer!
