A: Pours a thick foamy head. Color of a ripened apricot. Bubbles and light sediment floating around.

S: So yeasty and malty. Bananas and cloves are front and center as well.

T: Starts off with a mix of bananas and cloves and melds into a nice long bready finish.

O: Unbelievably creamy and smooth. Has to be the best beers of this style I've ever had.

The best hefe there is. Busy yet balanced. Strong yet smooth. If only it were cheaper I would drink this mead from the gods every day. Maybe I’ll move to Germany.

Good tasting beer no sediment that I like in the wheat beer's. But over all a nice refreshing taste. More widely found wiess bier in store's.
