look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pours hazy yellow, big fluffy head, so a classic pour. Few floaties. Out of the ordinary is a huge (!) amount of carbonation.
Sweet banana and clove, some honey and freshly baked bread in the smell.
Really fruity, a nice mix of sweet-sour-acidic: apple, banana, oranges, pear, like a tutti-fruit soda pop, but in a good way. Pretty faint hints of floral honey and caramel, but they do enrich the whole taste. Wheaty bread, clove from the dense yeasts, going to some herbal notes in the lightly bittered finish.
The carbonation doesn't feel as aggresive as it looks, but it's still bigger than in other weizens. Crisp, not as chunky as others.
Nice weizen, easy to drink and tasty.

500ml bottle. Weizen glass. Pale straw color, cloudy appearance. White froth creates a close but lively & poor head. Yeast, banana & fresh bread aromas with slight phenolic notes. Bready & malty flavors at first sip. Medium body. Moderate but lively carbonation. Dense to watery mouthfeel. Low floral bitterness. biscuit & clove notes linger in a sweet malty/slight bitter finish. Estery aftertaste & bread memories. Refreshing & easy drinkable beer.

I have only really had 2 kinds of Hefe Weizen's before. One was on tap in Leavenworth, WA and I just cant seem to get the brewers name. However, this beer has came very close to the smooth and heaven like Hefe Weizen I tasted before. The beer has great color and head. The smell is full. The taste is very well rounded and anytime in the mood to really just sit down with a beer and appreciate its existence, this is my go too.
