This is everything you want with this style of beer. Yellow hazy appearance, banana/clove/bubblegum nose, and moderate carbonization for the mouthfeel. The best representation of good proper German beer. Pours a frothy head too. This beer deserves to be poured but can be enjoyed in a bottle. Best for a hot summer day but it's so good, you have to give it a shot when you see it

My bias will show on this one, but this is my favorite beer around. I was introduced to this gem a few years back and it is a beer that is appropriate for nearly any occasion. If you get a chance to enjoy, do not pass it up.
