look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

A: Into the pint glass goes a pale orange pour, mostly clear until the last yeast-laden ounces are swirled and dumped in. A very nice white froth this beer has. Great carbonation streams through the glass. Lace sticks randomly in flecks and patches.

S: Nice aroma of cloves, spices and ripe banana.

T: Terrific flavor: bold spices (cloves, cinnamon, a little nutmeg), banana and a load of wheat taste.

M: Crisp feel, medium body, excellent carbonation that's active without being overbearing. I can't believe the 7% ABV, I could drink this all day.

D: Awesome flavor and aroma, definitely a hefeweizen I'd buy this regularly. Highly recommended.

Pours a cloudy golden pale amber color with a HUGE stiff off white head that resists fading, decomposing like an ice cream float, leaving spotty patterns of Belgian lacing behind. The smell is AMAZING...Belgian yeast, harvest fruit, pears...banana. The mouth feel is lightly carbonated and full bodied...very smooth. Full flavored, the taste mirrors the nose. Sharing this with my sons...they are REALLY loving it! Where did this come from...definitely under my radar. True drinkability..very satisfying. Many thanks out to maximum12 for this opportunity!!!!

Deep foggy amber color with extremely tight eggshell white head of suds.

Wheaty with clove and banana and a hint of lemon zest.

Like the nose. Heavy on the wheat! This is the best Hefe I've had.

Medium bodied. Big and rich. Two words I never thought I would say for a Hefeweizen. Slight sharpness from the carbonation activates a lot of flavor.

I can't even believe the ABV in this. This goes down so easy. Easily the best wheat beer I've had. Breaks a lot of stereotypes for this style. Outstanding beer!

Grabbed this in early summer 2011 during a Great Lakes region beer tour.

Poured into a 0.5L Staropramen glass. This is a pale, light gold color. Foam formation was massive, off-white and slightly rocky. Retention is good.

Freshly peeled banana features prominently in the nose, as one might expect from this style. Classic bubble gum noted underneath. Hops hard to detect but this is ok.

Flavor includes another nod to the banana but an equally present, balanced clove is here, too. Bready malt. Bitterness is rather low. Finishing dry.

Medium in body with a moderate/moderate high level of carbonation.

Though this beer has been in my fridge for roughly half a year, I'm very impressed with the subtle and balanced flavor profile it offers. The banana/clove/bready malt balance is well done leading to well rounded profile that makes for an enjoyable session.
