Appearance: Cloudy golden straw with two and half fingers white head.

Aroma: Mostly banana. Some clove and bubblegum. Hints of wheat.

Taste: Banana, bubblegum, clove, lemon, and some cracked pepper. Bits of wheat throughout. Pleasant wheat biscuit aftertaste in the finish.

Mouthfeel: Median- light with carbonation a over median. Very prickly on the tongue. Just a slight dry finish.

Overall: While this is only my second hefeweiess, I really enjoyed this one. Always available and cheap.

I don't have much to say about this beer outside of what top advocates of it have already said. If you have not had this beer, you're missing out. If you have had it, I'm sure you are like me and jump out of your seat a little every time you find it at a bar or restaurant.

Truly art.
