Picked up a 6-pack straight from the brewery. Golden in color and cloudy. Medium sized head and nice retention resulting from a ton of carbonation. Aroma and flavored are loaded with banana and bubble gum, the latter of which can be a bit cloying at times. Prominent yeast profile. Light to medium bodied. Overall, a solid hefe.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

A: The beer is hazy yellow in color and has a very high amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a two finger high white head that hardly died down as it was continually fed by a stream of rising bubbles.
S: Light aromas of wheat are present in the nose along with notes of clove and hints of bananas.
T: The taste is similar to the smell, except that the banana flavors from the yeast are a little stronger and the cloves are a bit more noticeable towards the finish.
M: It feels a bit more than light-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is a good representation of the style and is easy to drink, but I wouldn't consider this to be "thirst-quenching" because it feels slightly heavier on the palate compared to most other beers in the style.

Got this as an extra in a recent trade, can't remember who sent it but thanks. 12 oz bottle served in a Hefe glass. Best before October 2013.

A: Pours a clear yellow color with some light shading towards the top. A white head forms on the pour, about two fingers high, and settles down to a thin, wispy film. Some light splotches of lace are left down the glass.

S: Typical hefe smells. Light clove, some mild fruitiness with a solid wheat backbone. Banana esters are present as well. Light pie crust as well

T: The banana esters take over with a brown banana sweetness and rankness to it. The wheat is there with some mild sweetness. Slightly vegetal in natures as well. Doesn't really mesh well together and isn't that particularly inviting. After a few sips it becomes more bland and even less flavorful

M: Light bodied with a medium high carbonation level. Very banana ester forward on the finish with a high level of sweetness.

O: This just doesn't work. The yeast profile they used wasn't very inviting and while it had the typical hefe flavors it was extremely unbalanced. More hops and wheat would have been nice. A little fuller body to.

A - As expected it has a yellow hazy tint in color yet as others stated the head fades rather quickly to a mild lace ring.

S - A nice bit of fruity yeasts, clove, sweet malts, and a bit of coriander.

T - I do get some blond tones of mild grains and sweet malts along side of some mild Hefe tones of lemon, clove and wheat.

M - Medium yet balanced yeast tones.

Overall I will seek out their other beers (maybe the dunkel next) since this one impressed me a bit.
