I ordered this on my last trip to the Bavaria Hof Restaurant in Schaumburg, IL $5.50 for a 330 ml brown bottle with no freshness date.

This is a beautiful looking beer. Not as cloudy as most hefeweizens, this one produced a slightly hazed deep golden color with 3 full fingers of fluffy white head on top. Retention was forever. I finally gave up waiting for the head to go down and just dove in for my first sip, coming up with white foam on my nose. The lacing was good as well.

Not as much banana/clove aroma as I expected from a hefeweizen, but lots of wheat and lemon instead.

Wheat and bready malt backbone with only a hint of banana/clove flavor. The lemon/citrus that was detected in the nose is also very prominent in the taste. Low bitterness and well hidden alcohol. With all the lemon it was a bit on the tart side, but I didn't mind that at all.

Smooth, light body with medium carbonation.

While not the typical classical hefeweizen, I loved it and will seek it out in 6-packs in area liquor stores, which should have it at much lower cost than restaurant prices.
