Poured into a yardstick glass. Merry f'n Christmas!
A: Due to the way I poured it into the said glass (read: as aggressively as possible), it came out with one of the biggest damn heads I've ever seen. Forget measuring it in fingers, this thing would have had to been measured in FEET. And it was beautiful to boot. Frustratingly, the head retention is excellent. The body itself is a very cloudy, murky dark copper color that looks vibrant.
S: Apple, banana, cloves, and that trademark "bubblegum" smell dominate the nose. Smells a bit tangy, as well. Nice!
T: Very refreshing stuff. The typical wheat beer esters are there in full force (bubblegum, banana, cloves), but it also has a tangy apple quality that mixes beautifully with the other flavors. I have to say that I slightly prefer the flavor profile of a hefeweizen, but I can really taste the top-notch quality in this.
M: Nice smoothness, with refreshing carbonation. The feel of the beer doesn't stand out, but holy shit, is it easy drinking.
O: Like I said, if given a choice between a hefe and a dunkel, I'll probably take a hefe. But this is nonetheless an excellent beer. If you've never had the style before, this is a great place to start.

Poured into an IPA glass. Don't ask.
Look: Murky caramel body. Cream colored head with decent retention. Light lacing.
Aroma: Buttered bread, toffee, and some old world European skunkiness.
Taste: Wheat, toasted bread, butter, caramel.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, smooth.
Overall: Probably would get a perfect score if I had this fresh. Too many weird flavors from being an export.
