I sprays compare the hefes to Weihenstephaner. I was surprised by how well this compared. The mouthfeel is heavier on this Sierra Nevada and I feel that the taste is heavier on the clove here. I don't have much access to Weihenstephaner by me so this now be a go too.

Slightly murky yellow-orange color. Banana and clove in the aroma, the phenols come through quite well. Something along the lines of mulberry and fresh bread as well. There is a slight orange taste Im getting as if it were a belgian wit. The banana is present in the taste as well but slightly less pronounced. Faint sazzer style hop in the background, just a touch floral. Medium bodied but feels rich from the wheat.
