Hazy orange-yellow in color. Poured with a thick white foam that reduced to a wispy cap. Sweet banana aroma up front with hits of bready malt and orange zest and a touch of spice. Nice, thick body that grows as the refreshing carbonation rolls through. Sweet banana flavor out of the gate immediately followed by a pleasant spiciness that carries to the end. Refreshing orange zest through the middle. Spices intensify at the end and the finish is crisp and clean.

Poured from 12oz bottle into pint glass. Cloudy with an excellent deep golden color. Head retention is poor, with no lacing evident.
Smell is good, with slight hint of bananas. Taste is good, with a very light mouthfeel. Pronounced clove and bananas, with very light mouthfeel.

A good example of a hefe, but nothing special.

Extra cloudy golden hue with white fluffy head that fades but leaves some attractive lacing. Smells of banana, clove, slight honey. Flavors of banana, clove, smooth vanilla, some floral notes, honey, and slick honey that covers the tongue. Medium bodied with light carbonation. Pretty, tasty, filling. Nevad does a great job with the hefe.
