Not gonna waste your time with the flavors and ingredients....the bottle does a fine job of letting you know what's what. So what is this beer? Simply put, it's to wheat beer what Sour Diesel is to glaucoma medication...THE DANKEST BATCH!! Can't say enough about the quality of this hefeweizen. It's like drinking pure sunshine.

A - Poured into a pint glass with a lemon on the side(I like a slice of lemon in my wheat beers... I don't care if its blasphemy). Poured according to the instructions on the bottle. Formed a two finger head which doesn't look like it's going away any time soon. Golden yellow and cloudy just the way I like my hefeweizen.

A - Citrus and fruit dominate the first sniff. As the head subsides the smell of banana comes through. Smells yeasty and wheaty.

F - The banana taste is fantastic. I tried a banana bread beer once but this is on a whole different level. I can taste small traces of the spicy clove as it suggested on the bottle. I cannot detect the yeast in the taste.

M - Light-Medium Body and you can tell its got yeast in it from the feel of it. The carbonation is medium and works well. Great feel for a hefeweizen.

O - This just became one of my favorite beers. 5s across the board. That lemon is going nowhere near this spectacular beer.
