A. Hazy bright yellow. Inch of white head.

S. Banana. Sugar. Malt. A nutty fragrance, maybe almond or hazelnut.

T. Banana and clove. Light pepper.

M Very light. Crisp. Tangy.

O. It's OK. I wouldn't put it up as one the best of the style. The clove is too powerful.

Serving type: on-tap

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

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.

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.

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.

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.
