Poured into a weizen glass

Expired one day prior to consumption.

This weissbier poured a hazy straw-yellow. Always a welcome sight to those looking for a wheat beer.

The mouthfeel was light and gentle compared to weissbier with a higher alcohol content.

The aroma was full of clove, wheat, and phenols.

Taste was superb. Clove, banana, and a spicy tingle was throughout the whole brew. As it warmed it continued to be a good compainion. In truth, this beer is a solid hefeweizen. The only thing lacking was the sharpness some other hefeweizens tend to have.
