3.78/5 rDev -1.3%
11.2oz brown bottle with no freshness date.
Look: Hazed muddle yellow, beautiful bubbly lace
Smell: Fresh bread, faint banana peel, mild spice, nutty yeast, dragonfruit, doughy
Taste: Smooth, crisp bite, clean graininess, mild banana pith, vague spice, yeast, chalky, dried grass, modest hopping, finishes dry
Very good, a bit too clean for my liking ... expected a bit more of the banana and clove but without those two pushing harder it is still a very drinkable brew.

Poured into a Celebrator pokal. Pours a hazy light to medium golden amber with a fine two finger white head with good retention and good lacing. Mild, but pleasant aroma of sweet bready malt, wheat and banana. Flavor follows with wheat, light yeast, banana and a hint of clove. Light bodied with pleasant carbonation. A nice, well made hefeweizen that does not stand out, but hits all the right notes and is mellow and tasty.

4/5 rDev +4.4%
A: The color is hazy orange and the enormous thick whipped-cream-like white head slowly dissipates into decent lacings.
S: Malty, not too sweet, but richer in wheat - ripe bananas. Almost a bit dry. Cloves and lemons. Yeast.
T: Sweet and bready - bananabread. Lots of wheat but not enough to overpower other flavours. Yeast. Citric.
M: Aftertaste holds some bitterness. Body is light and carbonation rich but smooth.
O: A nice Hefe, kind of mellow in comparison with the most extreme ones - nice!

500mL bottle, shared with my dad. Perfect pour for a German Hefeweizen: cloudy orangey-yellow with a towering white head that hods tremendous retention - just awesome. Aromas and flavors are typical for the style - yeast, wheat, clove, banana, faint bubblegum. Refreshing, but thinner bodied than some hefes. Nice clean finish. Overall, great example of the style, but I like some other brands a bit more than this one.

A: Yellow with a slight brown tinge, cloudy, 2 fingers of off white head, a little fine bubbled carbonation.
S: Bananas, cloves, yeast, spice.
T: Bananas, cloves, spice, almost a belgian style yeast. A little sour note.
M: Medium, bready body, with little to medium fine carbonation.
O: OK. Typical of this style, sort of cool German bottle. Would match salads and lemony light summer foods.
