On tap. Hazy orange color with white head. Aroma has really nice, ripe banana and floral yeast esters. Taste follows with s sweet wheat malt and banana, floral yeast, not cloying at all, really fresh and tasty. Medium body and carbonation, really easy to drink. One of the best, classic examples of a traditional hefeweizen.

This beer pours deep/cloudy orange with a very healthy head. The foam holds on for quite a while. It started with about four fingers, but two fingers retained for quite a while.I really enjoy the nose in a quality Hefeweizen in general. This one stands out with the best of the group. You get the banana and bubblegum with this bouquet. I like the the way this beer smells.The flavor is very refreshing. The banana and coriander really comes out with each sip. I like the balance.This is a very good summertime beer. I will need to pick up some in about four months.
