12oz brown bottle with no freshness date.

Pours a slightly hazed dark golden color with a good two fingers of head on top. A bit lemony, some sour dough bread and a balanced banana / clove combo in the nose. Crisp and very smooth with a chewy medium body. Big fermented wheat twang of fresh baked wheat crackers, faint lemon rind, powdered clove and banana taffy. Maltiness holds strong with some many flavors being pushed against it, even when it comes to the warming estery fruity alcohol. Maltiness stays around for the aftertaste and leaves the beer semi-dry.

Wow, a 7.2% abv hefeweizen ... its pretty much bordering the weizenbock but it damn sure drinks like a hefe. Lovely stuff, perfect for a snowy night.

4.34/5  rDev +2.8%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Pours a hazy orange, even hazy due to my swirling the yeast in, 2 fingers of white head, that has been sticking around for the last 15 minutes, very nice lacing

Smell is banana, spice like a cinnamon, clove, some subtle orange, a nice Belgian yeast

Taste is like a mix of banana and lemon bread in the opening followed by a bready maly, spice and more of a earthy banana bringing up the rear.

Mouthfeel is full due to the fine and abundant carbonation, finishes clean

This has always been Hefe and it remains so, I look forward to its release every year! Cheers!

Damn, I think this qualifies as an imperial hefe. At least it does in my book. And to clarify: It's an amplified hefeweizen that stays dry without the heavier body and fruitier flavors of a weizenbock. There's a big spicy clove aroma with hints of earthy, rustic bread and orange peel. The flavor gets fruitier, balancing a milder peppery spice level with touches of banana and berry with a malty edge of toast. The beer continues with little hits of vanilla and milky caramel. Man, what a beer. This is likely the best German wheat I've had and on par with a great Belgian tripel.
