Nose: banana and bread with a hint of clove
Pours a relatively clear amber for a Hefeweizen and sports an enormous 3" finely bubbled white foam cap that persists and generates fine lace.
Offers a rich creamy clove spiced banana bread palate with a touch of sweetness throughout
Medium full body and very effervescent.
