look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A: A somewhat cloudy, medium-golden beer with a wheat haze. The head is prolific, pour with a few fingers on an average pour. Long lasting white foam made of small bubbles.

S: This smells so good, really good, not something you'll catch me saying that often about a wheat beer. Medium-strong aromas of cloves, cinnamon and bananas with a moderate wheat sweetness. A low level of light colored fruits like peaches, apples and apricots.

T: A medium-strong cinnamon and clove spice dominates with a banana an light fruitiness taking a supporting roll. There is a light wheat sweetness in the middle but it runs out fairly dry in the end. The is a light hops bitterness and a balance that is slightly towards the bitter. The aftertaste if of spice and light fruit esters.

M: A light bodied beer with a very strong level of carbonation.

O: A spice focused, refreshing Hefe with a great flavor profile of cloves, cinnamon and fruits.

The best American take on this classic German style I've had. Hits all the right notes. Cloudy pale orange color with a huge, thick white meringue head you could eat with a spoon. Spicy banana-clove smell. Some funky yeast. Taste is warm spices balanced with refreshing fruitiness and a bit of tart-sour yeast. Exuberant carbonation pleases the tongue.
