I had this on-tap at a bar in a hotel right next to my own hotel on a recent trip to St. Louis.

A: Poured a very cloudy (unfiltered), orange creamsicle color, with an Alka-Seltzery head that made this look creamy and inviting.

S: Pow! Lots of coriander, fresh banana, with a very well balanced spice mixture.

T: Bubble gum, disciplined sweetness, and with a spice blend that was downright awesome and made me go back for more and more. The smoothness on the end was just icing on a well-baked cake!

M: Creamy as hell, and with ridiculous lacing that put most hefes on the market to shame.

O: This was one of the highlight brews of my entire summer!

A: Hazy yellow, creamy head. Great lace
S: Banannas, clove..obvious German hefe.
T: Follows nose, maybe a bit of vanilla? Perfect balance, clove, or bananna notes not over done.
M: Creamy, light, perfect!
D: Amazing. I love German hefe's, and this is hands down, world class. Wierd drinking one in January, but, it works.

Poured a hazy blonde color, reminicent of an old girlfriend. Uniform cloudiness as per the norm with this style. A low head with minimal lacing. I detected a light yeasty aroma, clean and fresh, with notes of banana, cloves, and a touch of orange.

I absolutely love the combination of clove and nutmeg evident in this solid weissbier from UCBC. It reminds me of a similar taste in a Paulaner variety, the name of which I can't recall. I'm going to enjoy this one on hot summer evenings!
