Poured from the bottle into a pint glass

A - Pours a cloudy honey color with an inch and a half off white foam head with minimal lacing

S - Smells of flowery spice with hints of coriander

T - Tastes like floral and fruity with bananas and some citrus. The after taste is the best part of the beer. Fruity taste left on the palate

M - Not too overpowering carbonation, nice creamy mouthfeel. Great

O - Definitely the best readily available wheat beer or hefe.

Can pretty much grab this off the shelf any day of the week and it will never be a bad choice
