Poured from a 500 ml bottle into a weizen glass. 02/22/09.
Pours a cloudy golden-brown color with nearly 2 and a half fingers of soft beige foam. The head receded slowly to a thin layer, minimal lacing and retention. Aroma is heavy with wheat and banana esters, orange peel, lemon, and clove.
Taste is strong with wheat and banana flavors. Lots of orange peel, green apple, and lemon zest join the mix. White pepper and clove linger in the background. Very pleasant taste with nice complexity.
Feel is medium bodied with crisp carbonation. Just a bit on the thin side. Very clean finish. Drinkability is very good, though it's slightly heavy. I'd easily enjoy a few of these in a sitting.
This is one of the best hefeweizens around. I highly recommend it.

1 pint 9oz. into weizen glass.
A - Not necessarily a deep, dark amber, but the high degree of haze gives it such an appearance. Substantial carbonation, medium-density head, and what little lacing there is, are all short lived.
S - The usual suspects for style; fruit, clove, pepper, wheat. While fruit and wheat forward, it is still well balanced. Disappointed however that apple and pear dominate the fruity side as opposed to banana. No bubblegum.
T - Wheat gives way to fruit, which gives way to clove/spice, in an incredibly consistent way. Predominately green apple/pear, some dank banana and clove hidden in the background.
M - Generally smooth. Some viscosity up front while the medium carbonation does its thing. Finishes almost perfectly between wet and dry. Easy drinker.
O - A very decent brew despite that I was hoping for a banana & bubblegum extravaganza. In short, this bottle failed to deliver the modern style expectation. However, what it delivers is supposedly unaltered tradition, which is hard to argue with, and turns out to be just as satisfying.
