I'm not a big fan of the hefeweizen style or wheat beers, but this one is outstanding. This should be the benchmark for this style. I haven't had any American hefeweizen's come close to this one. I love the banana notes, clove, touch of caramel and nut. This is a great summer beer.

50cl can. A bit too sweet, with notes of wheat, bananas, honey and white bread. No trace of alcohol, and the beer is quite refreshing, despite the sweetness.
