A beautiful golden hazy color with a white cloud like head floating on top. A strong fragrance of clove come out right away, with touches of banana and finishing with a wheat like bread scent at the end. The clove hit's the palate right the front of each taste. A yeasty bread flavor joins the clove and each flavor stays there long after each taste is long gone. A light medium feel with the cleansing sensation of carbonation leaves the palate dry and clean. The original Hefeweissen and it does not disappoint. It has everything you would expect, the classic look and feel, then the taste is what every beer in this style strives to be. This beer lives up to expectations.
