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

Bottle code says L155A.406.25, a best by date. I'm guessing the L stands for year 2102 and 155 is the julian date, so this is quite old. Also, the cap says Hefetraub but the bottle label is what I see here. Confusing.

A- it pours a hazy straw yellow, big ole head of foam that leaves some nice lacing.

S- I smell wheat, cloves/other spices, not much else.

T- good notes of wheat, light on the cloves, hints of banana. The age of the bottle probably killed off the beer's vibrant flavours but....this is still a joy to drink.

M- medium bodied with plenty of carbonation.

O- drinking this makes me wonder what it's like fresh. As is, it is very tasty and quaffable.
