first Hefeweizen i ever had.

the appearance is a cloudy yellow.

light aroma with bread, bubblegum and clove.

Flavor: i tasted alot bubblegum, banana, clove, with some bready notes.

nice mouthfeel.

Very refeshing and different if you have never had a Hefeweizen before, this was first hefeweizen i had tried and it got me hooked, very similar taste to Ayinger Brau weisse.
