I have had this a few times and always enjoy it.

Color is darker than a traditional hefe, which makes sense because of the name.

Flavors of caramel, wheat, chocolate, cloves, and bananas. Basically a hefe meets a brown ale. Some bubblegum flavors as well.

Mouthfeel is creamy and smooth. Medium bodied.

Overall, fun take on the style. I'd easily drink this again.
