Nice yellow gold color with a small to medium size head. Nice clean smelling and tasting beer. Not a whole lot of body. You can smell and taste the citrus and other spices. Somewhat sweet flavor. Nice and creamy. The thing that really stands out for me was the spiciness at the finish. It's a good clean beer that is very refreshing.

Pours clear, a bit odd for a hefe. Where's the little yeasty bits? Anyway, a dark yellow in color with an explosion of white foam that nearly burst out of the glass. It settles to 1/2" relatively quickly and remains a thick film forever, leaving decent lace.
Smell is sweet, malty, wheat, citrus, spices. All balanced nicely, very nicely indeed.
Taste is a copy of the smell. Malt, a slightly syrupy sweetness, wheat, citrus, spice and some alcohol. Great balance.
Warming, medium plus body, light effervescence. Smooth, too. If the yeast had shown up in the glass, this would be one of the best wheats ever.
