Never seen this German brew before, until I walked into my local Costco and bought a mixed case (18 bottles) of German beer. This was one of them.
Cloudy amber, orange peel color. Decent bubblingNice two finger head after the pour. Recedes to an almost full layer of foam. The lacing is not bad.
Yeasty hint of cloves and banana peel aroma. Add some lightly toasted malt wheat bread crust. Smells sweet and a little dry.
Yeasty dryness and sweetness. Banana peels, alittle toasted malt. Well balanced and rounded. Smooth and delicate finish with good carbonation. Nothing special, but not bad either. Great for a hot Summer's day relaxing. Great drinking beer.

Poured from 330mL bottle into a pint glass.
Appearance: medium-light golden hue, with enough haze to disguise the effervescence. Head pours a thick finger of pillowy white foam. Not bad.
Smell: aroma has a strong banana character, over a little bit of clove and refreshing wheat. The banana is almost artificial -- I'd liken it to banana Runts. Still -- I must say I quite enjoy it.
Taste: more of that banana and clove right off the bat; it's much more smooth and subdued than in the aroma. A slightly grainy wheat flavor characterizes the finish. But, boy, that banana -- shazam!
Mouthfeel: medium body with a strong carbonation and nice creaminess for the style. Actually, I quite enjoy it.
Overall: evidently I like this beer a lot more than average. I must say, I'm a fan of sweet, banana-ey German hefeweizens. So ... this beer is for me!
