500ml bottle in a glass. Orange, amber in color with a thin head that dissipates quickly. Smells like banana. Very smooth taste, reminiscent of a Hoegaarden, but more full bodied with a few fruit notes thrown in. Highly recommended.

Has that classic banana clove coriander aroma.Soft amber haze color.The color for some reason just doesn’t have the same appeal as others of the style. A two inch foamy head. Refreshing banana and citrus taste. Has a mild creamy but zesty mouth feel.

16.9 oz. bottle poured into wheat beer glass
(best before July 2015)

L: classic pale orange-yellow cloudy look, big 1-inch-plus head of fluffy off-white/beige foam that has stacks and stacks of big bubbles ... really cool-looking, those big bubbles; head is real thick and cream on edges and sticks well; tons and tons of bubbles flying up column; beer keeps a beautiful skin of foam, super thick collar; everything you'd want from a hefeweizen

S: banana, clove, spicy for a hefe, almost Belgian witbier-like

T: again, as much clove or spice as banana; again, very witbier-like ... but there's plenty banana flavor off the wheat and some typical sweetness; light all around ... nothing here is overboard; maybe a pinch of earthy bitterness in the background ... could be coming from simple alcohol taste

F: very soft, a bit flat ... that often seems to be right for the style, but this one can feel nitro-like if you give it a real hard pour

O: classic notes all around and not bad, but there's much better out there ... lacks the pop of that wheat sweetness you get from the really good hefes. has too much clove/all-spice in it for my personal tastes.
