A: Pours a hazy tarnished gold with two fingers of white head that fades into a thin cap with a little lacing.

S: Spicy yeast notes with aromas of clove, banana, orange zest, and some flowery notes. The finish is sweet and bready.

T: Spicy yeast here as well with clove, banana, a little citrus, and a nice, hearty bread finish.

M: Light body with mid-high carbonation, this beer is dry, crisp, and very drinkable.

O: One of the best hefeweizens out there. Smells and tastes amazing and is both quaffable and affordable.
