Look - Honestly when I think of how a hefe should look, it looks like this. Cloudy golden tan color with a good lasting white head
Smell - I'm in a wheat field with a smashed banana sprinkled with some clove in my hands
taste - Banana and slight clove on a bed of wheat juice
Feel - Full body creamy slight fizz carbonation
Overall - LEGIT, Best Hefe
