By my standards this beer was a nearly perfect example of a Hefeweizen. However, its taste and appearance deviate from others in this category in a way that may be unappealing for other drinkers. In the glass this beer has a deep, clear look that is rather surprising for the style. It looks more like a lager, with a warm golden hue. There is very little head and the cloudiness generally associated with Hefes is less pronounced. The smell is very pleasant but doesn't pack a heavy punch. It has a soft scent with a hint of sweetness, cloves and bananas. The taste has the usual banana notes but also has a slight lemon undertone. The mouthfeel is quite creamy with an oily finish. It actually has a slightly earthy taste to it. The carbonation is high enough to keep this beer light and drinkable. Overall not as complicated or heavy as other Hefes but a very tasty beer, and one I would buy again.

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.
