4.75/5  rDev +11.8%

A: poured into a weizen glass to a ruddy brown with a dense and rocky two finger off white head that retains well and leaves good lacing
S: smells of bananas and cloves
T: taste is bananas and cloves with a nice amount of malt sweetness and creamy wheat and some nice breadyness. swallow is more banana and clove with some honey sweetness and more breadyness.
M: this beer is fairly light with a creamy mouthfeel from the wheat. carbonation is slightly prickly and the finish on the beer is ever so slightly drying
O: A fantastic example of the style from a world class brewery. Definitely hits all the right notes with no apparent faults

500ml bottle.

A: Pours a hazy light amber/brown under a solid 1-finger thick off-white head which lingers and yields splotchy lace.

N: Bananas, estery, fruity, yeasty, faintly earthy and darkly malted.

T: Estery, yeast, clove and banana, trace bready roasted malts and caramel, mildly sweet and nutty.

M: Light body and medium carbonation. Dry, yeasty and estery finish.

O: Clean and easy drinking. A superb dark hefe.
