Decent, but lighter head for a hefe. A couple of streaks for lace. Cloudy, but not overly so, with a dark straw color.

Mild aroma of banana, clove and definitive wheat presence.

The taste starts watery but quickly becomes wheaty and sweet in the swallow. The aftertaste is brief but refreshing. Decent body and lower carbonation. Not overtly strong on the wheat side, which is my preference.

Aroma hints at clove and light banana. Taste leaves a little to be desired - flavors expected from the aroma are pretty light. It's OK.
