Pours a cloudy light amber with thick, dense white head, lots of lace down the glass, a half inch of foam sticks around until the end. Smell: very ripe banana, soft slightly grainy sweetness, clove, honeydew. Taste: real banana pudding into clove with some candied lemon-ish acidity, sticky banana mashed on graham cracker finish. Delicious. Extremely fluffy feel, medium body, sweet. If I'm going to go hefeweizen, I think this will be the one.

500mL into a weizen glass. Pours a crystal clear, glowing golden color w/ a 1-finger bright white head, great carbonation. Lovely.
Aroma is ripe banana, clove, earth, apple and pear. Floral and delicate.
Taste is clean and bright, mellow and soft; floral Old World hops, more banana and clove, and clean mineral water.
Mouthfeel is just right; light but with some weight and presence. Nice clean assertive finish.
Overall a very nice hefeweizen, about as good as it gets.

Light fizzy slight creamy smaller head, hazy orange golden color.
Nose typical German hefe like, nice wheat creamy slight grainy, nice floral weissbier like aroma, almost candy malt and sweetness, nice orange juice and light peel, little coriander and general light spices.
Taste light sweetness, almost candy like toffee caramel note, candi sugar perhaps bit very light. Then creamy wheat, little toasty wheat and biscuit like notes, wheat and hay, into mild coriander and mild spices, as well as light orange zest and some orange juice. Nice lighter style but sweet candy like Bavarian hefe. Finish is dry and a bit light, little bitterness note, more candy and orange zest, etc.
Mouth is med to lighter bod, bit creamy, nice carb.
Overall not bad, semi sweet but stays dry, nice hefe notes without too much bad wheat or spices.

A- Poured from the 500ml bottle to a pint glass with a semi-hazy light golden body. A white cap rises to about a three fingers high with a creamy and foamy texture. Head retention is good but the cap falls to a small ring. Lacing is spotty.
S- Light fruit esters off the top with bananas and pears that balance out with some phenolic hints of cloves and spices. A bit of crusty wheat, vanilla sweets and bread hints as well.
T- From the aroma, most things carry over but a fairly strong orange/lemon zest and citrus fruit feel opens up to add a new dimension here. A balance between the banana, pear, clove and German yeast notes is present. Crusty wheat and Pilsner malts bring some sweets.
MF- Light bodied with a creamy, silky texture. Carbonation at a fairly high level but very smooth as the texture of the beer shields the palate. Super light tartness overall.
A nice balance between fruits and spicy tones. Refreshing and flavorful and certainly goes down smoothly.
