Pours golden with thin white head

Smells like clove and banana

Tastes like clove and slight banana flavor. Missing some of the sweetness I like in a hefeweizen but has a nice citrus flavor to it.

MF- medium body high carbonation

I'm gonna give this one another try later. I had high expectations and was hoping for a little more sweetness. All in all a good hefeweizen.

I've always had this in a pint glass until I learned that I'm not supposed to be doing that.
So for this, yes, this one is poured into a weizen glass.
The appearance was a cloudy yellow color with a thick soft white three finger head that dissipated ever so gently. Soapy clingy foaminess runs all over.
The smell has a full wheaty/yeasty breadiness. Light clove and banana complement nicely.
As it warms, light grassy and citrusy effects come through.
The taste copied the smell in pretty much the same order.
The mouthfeel had a tinge of sharpness but it wasn't anything overbearing. There's a nice crisp acceptable tartness gently rolling over my tongue.
Overall, this nice low ABV-ed beer is just a great deal in the Summer. I certainly hope its not true that this beer is getting retired.
