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.

A pretty clear beer for a Hefe.....otherwise pretty refreshing especially for a hot humid day.

It's a hefe, nothing fancy. I can see why so many casual beer drinkers flock to this style. A light clove note and the banana aroma you expect are here. Crisply refreshing from the carbonation level and hop dryness. Feel free to add a lemon wedge if you're into ruining perfectly adequate beer with fruit. Wouldn't bother with a six pack but a cold Love on a hot day isn't a bad thing.
