Not my favorite style, but this is one of the better hefeweizens I have had. Tons of malt, but good balance and very little German beer "stank" that is pretty common with the style.

Pours a beautiful hazy orange due to being unfiltered. Huge white foamy head. Smells exactly how it is supposed to. Banana orange, crisp smell. Awesome breach banana with candied fruit tastes. Incredibly smooth finish. Maybe unfair that it was out of a draft at Chicago HB. I love this stuff!
