Notes / Commercial Description:
A pale, spicy, fruity, refreshing Hefeweizen originating in Southern Germany. The fast-maturing beer is lightly hopped with hallertau and shows a unique banana-and-clove yeast character. This is a specialty for summer consumption but enjoyed year-round by all. Prost!

I had this on tap at the tasting room, enjoyed chilled in a glass.

The color is deep golden straw color with appropriate amount of haziness and pale white cream with small bead. The smell has a fruity and banana ester with light yeast spice accents. The feel is good with semi creamy and moderately high carbonation with slight sweetness and fruity elements with mostly dry finish.

This hefeweizen is well brewed in that there are not a ton of fruit flavors from the yeast and you can actually taste the wheat malt with slight amount of spice and the yeast delivers an appropriate tropical tanginess to the flavor. Overall a decent take on the style and is appropriate for warmer weather, very drinkable.
