Dark gold to light copper in color. There's a fingernail of off white rests on top. Light lacing in the glass. Nice aroma of banana esters. The flavor is pale wheat and gentle banana esters. The mouth is light and smooth.

Poured from the bottle into a wheat ale glass.

An interesting unfiltered appearance, with a golden lemon to chestnut brown moving towards the top. Paints like a nice brush stroke with the hues cascading and getting darker as you move on up. Light and fine carbonation and plentiful, capped with a creamy bright white three finger head. Slowly settles as the head deflates like a slow balloon with no lacing. Good looking hefe.

Excellent aroma going on. Hints of sweet lemon drop candy, mild fruit citrus zest and a good sense of chewy malt. Hints a little bit of vanilla and cream with just a bare hint of banana. Excellent bouquet on this really nice.

A real surprising flavorful brew, but with a light texture unlike most hefes. Mid palate washes with a light cream and a spicy quality on first sip. Mid palate comes out much more dense, but then gives to lemon like flavors on the finish. Almost crisp lager like finish with a candy peppermint like action on the aftertaste.

Real interesting take on what seems truly a lighter hefe by design. Real refreshing and nice.
