look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

A: Pours a hazy copper color with 2+ fingers of head that relatively quickly fizzles down into a thin cap

S: Some banana and clove, along with some darker malts and fruits. Relatively simple, but still very good

T: Starts off with a hint of yeast and darker fruity malts. Goes into a light banana and clove before finishing with more of the yeasty notes

M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Very smooth and refreshing

O: A very good example of the style, although relatively simple. Great price-point and product as usual for Weihenstephaner
