A- Pours a hazy light golden amber color with a thin white head. Head is gone pretty quick leaving behind only a few bubbles. Very little to no lacing.

S- Wheat, bananas, clove, bubble gum and a touch of spices. A bit of yeast here too.

T- Follows the nose pretty well. Bubble gum and banana are leading the way here. Just a bit of yeast and spice here.

M- Fairly light in body and good amount of carbonation.

O- Pretty solid brew.

Serving type: on-tap

Had this on tap at the brewery. Apparently this is to become a seasonal although it was recently resurrected from retirement.

Poured with a beautiful head in a pilsener glass. Classic color of hazy yellow. Carbonation rose quickly in the glass.

Aroma has the classic smell of wheat, a little grapefruit and maybe a hint of banana. A little fizz to the head.

Taste was very similar to a classic german hefe. I think this his a great example of the style where most american wheats are almost undrinkable. Lots of easy drinking wheat body with citrus notes.

Mouthfeel was very full and complete. The fizziness made it a litle refreshing on a warm September day.

Will definitely have this again and would recommend this as a classic style German wheat.

Serving type: on-tap
