Pours a cloudy orange color with a impressive head that takes its time to dissipate leaving some lacing in a weissen glass.

Smell is of yeast, clove, banana, and wheat malts. Smell is impressive and strong. Really delicious smell, begging you to taste it.

Taste is all that you hoped it would be from the smell. Taste follows the nose with the banana, and clove being the most dominate ones that I get.

Mouthfeel is a little less impressive to me. Not a carbonated as I would have hoped from such a large head. Feel is more smooth.

Overall, a very impressive beer. If you like a good wheat beer, then you will really enjoy this one. The spice is not as overwhelming like I have had in other hefes. I will definitely get this one again.
