A: Bright golden orange in color, a clean pour yielded about 3 fingers of head.

S: Strong banana and spice. Fantastic.

T: More spice in the flavor with a lingering banana plus a bit of acidity.

M: Very carbonated.

O: Very very spice forward and quite good for an American hefe, but not the best buy New Glarus by far.

12 ounce bottle
Served in a weizen glass

A - It is a hazy pale yellow color. An aggressive pour yielded three fingers of fluffy, off-white head.

S - It has a spicy aroma. I get some banana, too.

T - The taste mirrors the aroma. It tastes like a kitchen spice rack with a little banana.

M - Moderate to medium with lots of carbonation.

O - I really enjoy this spicy hefeweizen. It kind of reminds me of a light version of Avintinus. It has tons of flavor. May be the best hefeweizen that I have had.

Enjoyed on 7/18/13 from a bottle.

A: Initial pour results in a large, puffy white head that slowly dissapates over the next 2 minutes. Little to no head apparent afterward. Beer pours a remarkably clear straw, light yellow color. Very little haze or sediment present - odd since I expected a cloudy brew.

S: A very subtle nose of clove, banana, and a small tinge of lemon. Nothing special.

T&M: Very spice-forward for a wheat beer. Initial citrus hoppy flavors quickly give way to spice overtones - clove, pepper, and cinnamon mainly. Cinnamon lingers on the tongue long after the sip. Banana flavors are present, but in very small amounts. The beer is quite effervescent - typical for the style but not quite my taste.

O: On the fruit::spice continuum of wheat beers, this is probably the most spice-forward brew I've ever had. If that's your thing, you'll absolutely love this beer. Me - not so much. It's too cinammon-y ...especially on the back-end. Additionally, I find the beer a tad too carbonated. To make this beer better, I'd dial down the carbonation and spice additions....but I understand what they were going for.
