I had this on tap last night at Alpine Village.
Pours a cloudy opaque yellow. Thick white foamy head that dissipates quickly leaving a thin layer of foam for the remainder of its time in the glass. No lacing.
Smells of ripe banana, and some orange. Some hints of sweetness.
Tastes creamy up front, a little citrus, with banana. Some carbonation at the end
Mouthfeel is creamy up front, very full body. Bananas linger a little bit.
I've been back from Germany for 2-years now, and this was a pleasant surprise.
I very solid example of this style.

A: straw color with noticeable foam head
S: bananas, cloves, wheat; good summer beer

M: smooth and drinkable; minimal bitterness
O: while Hefeweizen's aren't my go-to variety, this is one of my favorites of its type

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.
