Pours a hazy yellow/gold color with a large, frothy, pure white head fueled by a continuous stream of bubbles from the base of the glass. Wet patches of bubbles cling to the walls of the tulip. The aroma is of strong clove, banana, wheat, straw, freshly cut grass, and hay. Very floral and refreshing. The taste follow suits, with a strong clove and banana presence amongst a wheat and hay background. Some faint lemon citrus, white pepper, and crisp grape juice sensation round it out. Mouthfeel is delectable; light, crisp, and lively with an effervescent and dry finish. Overall, this is a phenomenal hefeweissbier that I’m always happy to have. The clove in this is very predominant, but masterfully integrated such that it doesn’t seem overpowering.
