Nice stab at a hefeweizen.
Pours a heavily-clouded orange. Whipping cream-like head. Lasts the duration.
Banana and clove on the nose.
Taste is dominated by these as well. Big fruitiness. Underlying carmel. Hops balance things, but are not otherwise assertive.
Mouth is creamy without being too heavy. Carbonation keeps things quite lively.
This one is right up there with some of my favorite weizens.

One of the top three American wheat beers I have had the pleasure to try.Nice lemony taste with a touch of clove in it.Nice color,am a big fan of Sprecher products.It has nice flavors but is pretty non-descript for the style.Makes for easy drinkin wich is what I was looking for.

Presentation: On tap @ The Gingerman, Chicago, IL.

Appearance: Cloudy caramel orange in colour with a tightly carbonated creamy off white lace that sitcks.

Smell: Sweet malt, touch of raw grain, clove and big banana aromas.

Taste: Slightly twangy upfront with a nice floral/citrus hop bitterness. It doesn't last long as clove spice notes quickly break things up, followed by the malt ... which is unexpectedly sweet and caramel-like, with an underlying fresh grain flavour and crispness. Notes of ripe banana blend nicely with the malt character, rounding them off. Mouthfeel is smooth, slick. Body is close to medium and consistent. Finishes with a touch of grain dryness on the palate.

Notes: The balance on this brew is perfection, and the malt richness stands out as a nice twist on the style. Thoroughly enjoyable and recommended.
