The beer pours a straw yellow color with a nice fluffy head. The yeast in the bottle makes the beer an enjoyable cloudy color.

The aroma is of banana, clove, and wheat malt. The aromas are all very well balanced without anything being blown out of porportion.

The beer tastes sweet and wheaty and is very refreshing.

The mouthfeel is full and smooth.

A refreshing hefe that is very well balanced. The aroma and flavor is more subtle which makes it seem more complex without anything being overpowering.
