A- Cloudy, gold color with a solid two inch head (white) that has outstanding retention and leaves lots of sticky lacing.
S- Lots of clove, banana, and earthy yeast aromas. Pepper and bubblegum as well.
T- Starts off somewhat sweeter than most Hefes. A mixture of the above aromas dance on the palate throughout the tasting. There's a tiny hint of alcohol in the finish.
M- Medium feel, with a nice crisp wheat "bite". Medium to high levels of carbonation.
O- Not quite up there with the heavy hitters in this style, but it's not that far off. A solid, well made, and very drinkable example of a Hefe. I can dig it. Give it a try if you haven't already. Prost.

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.
