12 oz. bottle poured into a New Belgium snifter.

A - 1-finger off-white foamy head dissipates rather quickly. Lemon yellow and cloudy.

S - Bottle after the pour explodes with banana, followed by a good whiff of clove. Nose is dominated by banana candy. Clove emerges as the glass warms and gives more room for aromas to collect.

T - Banana and sugar down the middle of the tongue with a rather sharp burst of clove along the sides at the same time. Wheat and light malt in support of the initial taste. What bananas foster as a beer would taste like. Clove is very subdued, but contributes spiciness on the finish. No discernible hops.

M - Somewhat fizzy with good carbonation. Banana sugar suggests a bit more creaminess than expected for a hefe, and it lingers through the finish. Good structure. Interestingly, the finish is noticeably drier than the banana would suggest it be.

D - On the banana/clove continuum, this hefe is skewed way to the banana end. That's what I like about it, but YMMV. I don't think I'd drink several of these in a session, though. Could make for a very interesting alternative to dessert after a good dinner.
