Virtually identical in appearance to a good hefeweizen. Dark orange to tan in color, very hazy, and with a long lasting, albeit smallish head. The comparison doesn't end there either. This has some similar notes in both smell and taste to a traditional German hefeweizen. The banana and clove are both there for sure, as is the soft pillowy mouthfeel. Of course there are some differences. For one, the citrus aspect of this beer stands out. It's there in the smell, but where it really becomes apparent is in the finish. In fact, it becomes TOO apparent. After awhile, all I can taste is a distinct lime aftertaste which really becomes too pronounced. But despite that being a big problem, that's my only complaint about this beer. I love the yeasty wheaty goodness and the caramelly malt flavor before the aftertaste hits. And the aroma is extremely inviting, as the lime is more subtle to the nose. Definitely something I would drink again, but I will remember to allow an hour to finish it next time.

A - It is straw colored and cloudy. It is topped with half a glass of white head.
S - The smell is pear and some Belgian yeast. That is not what I was expecting.
T - The taste is like a wheat beer meets a Belgian strong pale ale. It reminds me a lot of a BSPA. If it weren't for the cloudiness of the beer that's what I would have thought I was drinking.
M - Medium
O - This beer is different from the other wheat wines that I have enjoyed. As I mentioned it reminds me of a Belgian strong pale ale which I happen to like. It is good but different.
