Poured from a bottle into a weisse vase, the beer is a hazy, golden coloring with a fluffy, low profile, white head. Aromas of toasted grains, coriander, orange peel, clove, and hints of banana. Flavors are heavily roasted, with a spice blend forward, heavy on the clove. Banana bread and berry sweetness, with floral highlights. The body is light, and slightly effervesced, with a berry and banana blend in the aftertaste. The spice calms down a bit, making this finish very light and refreshing. Very good warm weather beer.

Just a hint of a spice gives this a bit of a different taste.

Light and refreshing. Not a bad Hefe, but nothing special either.
