Lovely smell. Vanilla and nutmeg. Definitely sweet. Nice cloudy appearance with a thin white head that quickly dissipates. Pale straw color. Nice refreshing taste. A bit on the sweet side. Not as phenolic or tangy as your typical German Style Bavarian Hefe-Weizen. Very unique version of a bavarian hefe-weizen.

Well i don't really know what to say about this one. Very very fruity and bready. It smelled kind of like bannana bread and was sorta cakey tasting. I think I am going to have to try it again befor i decide if i liked it.

Hazy golden-orange color....nose has that bavarian spicy banana-clove touch, which I like.... a bit thin body-wise.... the right flavors are there (banana and clove) but need to be more pronounced... Not bad...

Not a bad stab at a Bavarian Hefe. However, when compared to the real thing this one comes up a bit short. Thinish body and lemony with a subtle clove note. What's missing, IMHO, is a fuller body with that touch of creamy banana, malt sweetness and the usual pillowy head. One of the better US brewed Hefes though.

Presentation: 12 oz brown long neck with a “Purchase Before Month Notched” on the side of the label. Same SA label with a royal blue colour, “Bavarian Wheat Beer” stated on the label.
Appearance: Pale yet clouded over golden colour due to the decanting of the yeast, big bubbly and frothy white head forms to a two fingers thickness. Sticks sporadically on the glass though could have better retention for a wheat beer.
Smell: Rounded and complex fruitiness with overtones of banana, powdery clove that lends a light yet ample spiciness. True wheat malt aroma for that style.
Taste: Incredibly smooth with a thick in the middle medium body, moderate carbonation with some slickness on the mouth. Some spiciness upfront though does not rock the boat, suggestions of clove and white pepper with a layered twang from the fermented wheat. Hops are little though shine more in the finish with a slight oily flavour that does not get in the way. Nuttiness from the yeast and the few estery alcohol flavours procure a hint of almond on the palate. Spice flavour cleanses far into the finish with a light sour dough bready flavour to boot.
Notes: Other than the head not being up to par this is a pretty damn good interpretation of a German Style Hefe-Weizen.
