12 oz bottle into a large weiss glass. Freshness labeling on the side. Cloudy and pale gold it delivers a generous head of a couple fingers. Good lacing and head retention and a very active carbonation visible throughout.

Smell is heavy on the lemon and wheat malt. Quite twangy and sharp. Light sweetness from the malt is backed up by gentle banana and yeast esters. Banana develops as it warms.

Taste is wheat malt upfront and lemony right after. Good fruitiness follows with light pear and heavier banana. Clean and light hops close it out with a slightly spicy clove and pepper kiss goodbye.

Mouthfeel is tingly and effervescent with a fine layer of carbonation on the mouth. Light medium in weight.

Drinkability is easy and good for sessioning in the summer.

I've had this one with a bit more flavor so I will review it again at some time and see if it holds up. I just remember more bang in the bottle. Freshness date indicates it was produced 03/08

A - Pours hazy orange-gold color.
S - Smells of bananas, cloves, citrus, and yeast.
T - Bread w/ yeast, banana, cloves, and then orange/lemon and yeast.
M - Medium light body with crisp finish.
D - Great drinking beer for the warmer weather.

I really like this Hefe and it is certainly above most others.

Appearance was a cloudy golden color with a steady stream of bubbles rising up to a pillowy, white head that resembled beaten egg whites. Aroma was great... musty bananas, cloves, sour apples. Taste was all spice and cloves up front, tangy in the middle, with a crsip, dry aftertaste. Mouth was very effervescent, lighter bodied, smooth and extremely drinkable. A great example of the style. Good stuff.
