Brought home fresh from my recent trip to the Czech Republic.
Pours cloudy, pale orange-brown body that appears like black tea with milk added, topped by almost instantly dissipating head unusually thin and short-lived for a Hefeweizen. Banana is the dominant aroma, complemented by pronounced malted wheat sweetness and subdued clove. The somewhat sweet, bananaish flavor is predominantly bready and doughy. Towards the finish emerges citric tartness due to the suspended yeast, and slight hop bitterness. Light-medium bodied and fluffy on the palate.A decent Czech approach to the style, however, the beer's appearance was disappointing. (500 ml, freshness date 27. September 2011, into tulip.)

A: The beer is slightly hazy light yellow in color and poured with a two finger high white head. A light amount of carbonation is visible.
S: There are light aromas of wheat in the nose.
T: The taste is dominated by flavors of wheat malts along with some hints of cloves.
M: It feels light-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
D: The beer is quite refreshing and goes down very easily. It's a good selection for a hot summer day.
