A: hazy; medium gold in color; less than a 1 finger white head that receded to a thin collar; OK lacing;

S: bread, clove, and banana;

T: quite different from the nose; water cracker for a moment, then lightly sweet malt; a little floral; virtually no bitterness; as it warmed, the clove and banana became noticeable from mid-palate through the finish;

M: light to medium bodied; moderate carbonation;

O: this tasted more like a pilsner until it began to warm up;

'One of my favorite examples of the style. I am surprised that it hasn't been ranked any high

Color, cloudiness seem to be on par for a nice hefe, but that's where it ends. This beer had a decent aroma that got me a little excited but that's about it. Fully carbonated with lots of orange. A little too much carbonation for a hefe, and the fruity yeast esters that I was looking for are not there. An ok beer, but not what I consider a stellar hefeweizen.....
