More than anything else about this beer, I love the fact that it comes in sealed, 6-pack boxes. No light at all getting to these beers The yellowy brown, moderately sedimented body starts off with a fizzy, spritzy head that slowly settles into a creamy, flat, brilliant white pancake of foam. The standard, clovey-banana aroma predominates, more phenolic and dry than some of the bubblegum hefes. The flavors the samesuper effervescent and phenolic with a clean, grainy, banana-clove overtone. Like most hefes tend to do, this one thins out a bit after the initial effervescence gives way to the liquid beneath. As far as Bavarian hefes go, this one is solid, but not a stand out.

Bottle from Bert's
Pours a hazy dark straw color with a wispy bubbly white head that quickly dissipate to a light foam on the top and leaves marginal lace on the way down. Aromas of pepper and clove with hints of bubble gum and a light honey like and spicy maltiness. Bready yeasty aromas and a hint of lemon round out the nose on this one. The flavor is lightly sweet honey, and bready, and spicy malt up front. clove and pepper and bready yeasty flavors counter the malty sweetness well. Light to medium body with a moderate to high level of carbonation and a sweet spicy bubbly mouthfeel. I'm missing the banana, but everything else seems to be there. This would make a nice warm weather brew, light and easy to drink.
