22 ounce bottle into weizen glass; no bottle dating, but was released fairly recently. Pours very hazy golden orange color with a 1 finger fairly dense white head with decent retention, that reduces to a spotty lace cap that lingers. Minimal lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of big orange peel, pear, apple, banana, apricot, wheat, bread, bubblegum, clove, pepper, herbal, floral, and yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of fruity/spicy yeast, malt, hop notes; with good strength. Taste of orange peel, apricot, banana, pear, apple, wheat, bread, clove, bubblegum, light pepper, herbal, floral, and yeast earthiness. Lingering notes of orange peel, apricot, banana, pear, apple, wheat, bread, clove, bubblegum, herbal, floral, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice balance, complexity, and robustness of fruity/spicy yeast, malt, and moderate hop flavors; with zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a lightly creamy and very smooth mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very nice hefeweizen. All around good balance, robustness, and complexity of fruity/spicy yeast, malt, and moderate hop flavors; and very smooth and easy to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

First and foremost...I am not a huge Hefe fan so I probably wont rate this as high as others. The beer was poured carefully as to avoid the sediment that amassed at the bottom of the bottle. The beer was a golden clear with no head and no lace. The scent was typical of most....probably leaned more towards clove than banana. The taste had decent spiciness to it and the clove and banana balanced fairly well. The mouthfeel was medium in body with good carbonation. Overall it was good....and certainly worth a try.

Bottle picked up 2 months ago when i was in town. Enjoyed from a FFF teku.

a - brew poured a rich yet transparent orange with a thin bubbly head that bubbled away almost instantly.

s - nose is big bubble gum and banana bread to a tee.

t - exactly as the nose advertised. Banana bread with bubble gum.

m - zingy and heavily carbonated, almost prickly. Not sure why others claim under carb. Although minimal head, this puppy is fizzy.

o - overall, i really enjoyed this beer. Everything is in the right place. If anything, I would dial back the aggressiveness on the carbonation and the bite. Solid hefe.

The beer is dark orange with only a mild haziness. The head is surprisingly nonexistent for a hefeweizen. Even an aggressive pour yields very little cap. The aroma offers some bubble gum like sweetness. Banana, clove, sugary candies. The taste is a little better than the aroma, lacking the cloying sweetness I had feared. A bit of prickly carbonation, in spite of the nearly still and lifeless appearance. Overall, a pretty solid beer.
