Pours a fizzy bubbly airy 1 finger head that fades semi slowly with decent lacing, hazy golden wheat colored beer.

Nose is like a pure Bavarian hefe, good version too, lots of wheat, light airy juicy malt, hint of typical spices like coriander and very light clove, bit of orange citrus, fairly effervescent.

Taste is light feeling, wheat a plenty, little watery malt although it's meant to be lighter, fluffy effervescent wheat and malt, juicy too. Typical hefe flavors, light spices coriander and clove like, with a little bitterness from the spices, and the citrus almost orange juice like, and some fruitiness like a lager. Finish is sticky and not as dry as I thought it would be, lingering wheat and citrus as well as spices.

Mouth is lighter bodied, fluffy and lots of carb.

Overall mixed, it has its moments as a great hefe but other moments it's not as good as I would have expected. I feel this would be much better fresh in Germany or on draft.

The beer has an orange-golden appearance, with a huge, well-retained head. The aroma, as expected, brings cloves and bananas (the last very well pronounced).

The medium, hazy body emanates bananas, and is very refreshing. The hops are discrete, and the sip goes smoothly, with a fast aftertaste. In the aftertaste, we are reminded of the very discrete hop presence in this brew.

From the moment you pour this beer, it reminds you of a true southern German heffe-wiezen. It brings me back to days of being stationed in the former West Germany. When poured, it easily produces an excellent creamy head with a light and refreshing flavor. The beer itself goes down wonderfully and pairs easily with pork, kraut and grilled meats. The beer also performs double duty as it lends well to traditional German mixed beer drinks (radler, cola-weizen, etc.)The appearance is definitely what you want for a traditional unfiltered beer, cloudy and golden. Cloudy with a slightly bitter after taste, but not the strong bitter flavor one would find from the hops in an IPA. Try adding a bit of lemon or rice to have a quick vacation to Germany.
