Poured from a bottle into a pilsner glass.

Look- dark amber color, maybe a little murky, with about two or two and a half fingers' worth of foam that dissipates somewhat quickly.

Smell - exactly as it's described. It smells like a Bavarian hefeweizen, but darker due to notes of caramel or something along those lines maybe.

Taste - very interesting taste! Not at all what I was expecting. It does still have that Bavarian feel to it, but it's spicier than I would have imagined it to be. It's not wild and crazy though. The purity laws would prevent that.

Mouthfeel - very well balanced brew, not too far on the side of watery or creamy.

Overall - very good brew that fits exactly with the style.

A - Hazy nut brown color with a cream colored head that sticks around for a long time and leaves great lacing.

S - Yeast, wheat, toasted malt, bread and banana and bubble gum yum!

T - Great taste of predominately banana and bubble gum which is balanced out by bready yeast, toasted malt and some wheat. A great example of the style with tons of flavor.

M - Medium bodied, with medium carbonation, you can almost feel a bit of texture to this beer, definitely not watery.

O - Just a very solid beer that should please all beer lovers and even none beer lovers. Great beer for any time of year and any occasion.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: From a 1.9 pint bottle and poured into a Hefeweizen glass is a rich and dark hazy copper with some amber hues through out this beer. On top is a very thick rocky head that is about two inches tall. Scattered lacing is left behind that looks very good in the glass.

Aroma: Clove, fruity esters, banana, and brown sugary sweetness. Floral hops mostly with notes of alcohol.

Taste: Quite the malty backbone with a buttery smooth mouthfeel. Banana, cloves, yeasty breadiness with a slight dry finish.

Notes: Such a great beer top to bottom. Cheers.
