I have grown out of this style, but I really enjoyed this beer for a while in 2012-2013. Just a great drinking beer that is super smooth and easy to drink.

Huge great banana and clove flavor in this one. A little more subdued on the clove than other hefeweizens I've had, but it is still there. Overall the best hefe I've had so far.
