Poured into a wheat glass from a growler. The pale, cloudy golden body is topped by a thick, three inch white head that crowns over the top of the glass, only slowly diminishing over time. The head is clearly supported by a lot of active carbonation.

The aroma is a spicy, phenolic aroma, filled with notes of clove and banana. Really fresh smelling. Quite perfect and on course for the traditional style. Potent as well, so this gets the highest markings.

This hefe has a gentle, soft medium to light body, with a perfect amount of carbonation for the style. It's almost to the point of being creamy. There are flavors of sweet wheat, and just similar touches of clove and banana in the aftertaste and exhale. But the finish is on the drier side, with little to no residual sweetness. Bitterness is extremely low, and there is almost no hop presence at all in this beer. I can't say enough about the excellent flavor here. So sweet, yet without the sugar. Delicious flavor of the Bavarian Hefe yeast and fresh wheat mixed together.

Fantastic beer all around. So damn drinkable, and so on point with the style that I find it hard to believe that they don't win every GABF year. Very impressed with this, and to be sure, it even exceeds what many German breweries are putting out there. Well worth seeking out!!
