Poured from a 500ML bottle to a cheap clear glass. Golden yellow with a slight haze, extremely dense head that dissipates to about 1/4 inch that resembles whipped cream. (amazing) Very complex flavors, wheat and grain upfront, followed by a slight sweetness and then a hint of cloves.(similar to Hoegarden but not nearly as assertive) The 1/4 inch whipped cream head lasted the entire glass. I don't know if this is bottle conditioned but it also had a small layer of sediment in the bottom of the bottle. Really special, glad I found it.

Pours a deep golden, light amber coloration with a medium, creamy head. Smells of yeast and banana, with a hint of cloves. Taste follows the nose, with a yeasty, wheaty character accompanied by bready malts, banana and a little citrus, with some spicey notes of cloves and a little pepper and bitterness in the aftertaste. An exceptionally well-balanced beer where yeastiness, spiceyness and fruitiness are in perfect balance.

Outstanding Hefe. Straw collected. Mid carbonation. Light banana smell. Faint fruit. Mild spiced after taste, balanced though. Everything worked together very very well.
