Poured from a bottle into a sample glass.

Appearance: Cloudy light brown color with a beige head.

Smell: Stronger on the cloves, carmels, and banana than a regular hefenweizen.

Mouthfeel/Taste: Smooth medium bodied and maybe a little thicker than I expected. Taste was just as it smelled; cloves, banana, carmel, malts and maybe some grassy and citrus notes too.

Overall: Not a huse fan of this beer personally, just wasn't my style. Glad i tried it though.

The pour is a light brown color with a massive khaki colored head that sticks around forever. I've poured two of these into a tulip and the head is almost foamy to a fault.

The nose is distinctly German but IMO, much better than a lighter hefe... notes of clove, yeast, caramel, bananas & bread.

sweet from the beginning: banana bread, raisins and plums. On the finish is caramel and toffee with a hint of yeast.

The body is medium which is pretty thick for a hefe. plenty of carbonation on the tongue.

Hefeweissbier is hardly my favorite style but I do enjoy a good dunkel and this is a solid standard if you want to try a good German dunkel.
