Pours a cloudy amber with massive (!) head of off-white carbonation. Big, loopy lace.

Nose is nicely banana and clove-spice. Absolutely perfect and in line with a great hefeweizen. Very nice, yes.

Taste is sweet and spicy, with plenty of banana and clove notes. The finish shows a bit of honey and tart citrus, as well. Perfectly balanced and so drinkable, I could have these daily.

Refreshing, complex, and positively an ideal hefeweizen.

Single bottle served cold in Hefe style glass beer challis

A) Cloudy & bright, mahogany colored fizzy mixture. Soft white head settles quickly. Looks terrific...

S) Classic hefeweissen - banana, sweet citrus fruit, clove. Slightly musky as the beer opens

T) Delicious. Banana bread, honey, very mild pepper, caramel, tart.

M) Well balanced with adequate fine carbonation, sticky sweet, mild hops and smooth.

O) Not only an excellent example of this classic style, easily found here in Chicago and reasonably priced.
