Notes/Commercial Description:
This refreshing pale south German style wheat ale is fermented to naturally draw out a hint of banana and clove. It's unfiltered and lightly hopped to achieve its smooth, pleasant flavor and cloudy appearance. Enjoy!

12oz brown bottle with no freshness date.

Swirlled the yeast in, nice a cloudy though I expect a bit more form the head. Banana, check. Clove, check. A pleasing aroma. Some smoothness, carbonation is a bit tame. Yeasty palate with some dried breadiness in the back. Some medicinal phenols drop into the play, a bit of a distraction as it is not a subtle flavor but thankfully it soon fades away. Bandaids come to mind. Dry-ish finish with a some of the banana, clove and breadiness lingering.

Hard to pit this against pretty much any German hefe, decent.

This was a very light golden, yellow color. It had a thin foam that dissipated, and left slight lacing along the glass. Definitely smelled the banana aroma. The taste overall is light and not overbearing in the slightest. You can really taste the fruit and wheat in it. Clean finish.

Great beer, good for summer time!
