500 mL flip-top pours a hazed orange color with an ample cap of white head. Darker than a typical hefe and the head shows great retention and lace.

Nose leans heavier on the bananas than cloves with a pungent malt graininess.

Flavor has much more malt that Im used to is a hefe and honestly tastes a bit stale. I wonder how old this is...The yeast is subdued and unfortunately not very pronounced. Still easily finshable, but disappointed. Was hoping for a better hefe.

Appearance 3.5
Hazy yellow to very light orange, lasting head/thick lace.
Aroma 4
Loads of banana nut bread, grapefruit, wheat.
Mouth feel 4.25
Very balanced and finishes semi dry.
Taste 4.25
Great Weiss very enjoyable and balanced taste from sip to finish. Starts out thick with bananas. Yeasty with strong citrusy middle and nice banana bread finish.
Overall this is a fine example of the Weiss style and very drinkable.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Hazy golden color with a huge head with eternal retention and leaving laces.
Delicious aroma with lots of bananas, cloves, yeast, mild herbal hops, vanilla and bread.
Predominant flavor of oranges, cloves and lemon. Interesting that the bold banana smell did not showed up in the mouth. Hints of grassy hops, pears and sweet pineapples. Dry aftertaste with a light bitterness.
Light bordering medium body with appropriate carbonation
Nice Hefeweizen with relatively higher intense of spices and hops. Not sweet and with a good deal with barley malt as opposed to mostly wheat. If you dig the style, this one is a must.
