A: The beer is slightly hazy light yellow in color and has a moderate to high amount of visible carbonation. It poured into a weizen glass with a finger high head that died down, consistently leaving a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of bananas and cloves are present in the nose.
T: The taste is similar to the smell and also has some flavors of wheat from the underlying malts.
M: It feels light-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is very easy drink and refreshing. It is an excellent American representation of a German hefeweizen and tastes very similar to the weisse beers found in Southern Bavaria.
