Poured from the green 11.2 fl oz. bottle into a wheat ale glass.

Classic creamy off white colored head on the pour, nothing booming or large like a classic Hefe, but manages a half finger puck. Classic body color, not too dull or bright, opaque but a dull apricot orange and yellow, with lots of micro fine carbonation.

Classic hefe nose. A real great solid aroma that is nicely spicy and aromatic. Mild banana and nutmeg sweetness. Hints of cream a bit as well. A real nice simple and very enjoyable nose and we have luckily also avoided the skunk monster.

Real nice simple palate. Spicy hits bubblegum like aftertaste for the flavor. Mid palate washes in a mild chewy malt density with tangy notes of lemon and bubblegum controlled sweetness but not overly so. Some spiced after phenols more on the nutmeg side of sweetness and staying away from hot and classic brown spice. Nice hints of lemon and lime like finish to match. Palate comes into more lighter body with not a good chewy wheat depth but still pretty solid.

This really surprised me, for such an assuming small bottle, and it's packaging. A nice little hefe that comes off with some real surprising character.
