Pours a pale yellow color. Not very cloudy. Head retention is great. Is this more of a kristalweiss than a hefeweizen?

Smell is of bananas and cloves. The cloves are faint at first but come out more and more as the beer warms.

Taste is of mild pale malt sweetness and banana. Not as dry as others of the style. Definitely more malt sweetness lingers

Mouthfeel is very good. A little much on left behind sugars for the style. Carbonation is perfect.

I'm very impressed by this hefe. I would bet in a blind tasting this hefe would beat some big names

When poured, the color was a hazy yellow with a medium amount of foam and some lace. The smell of bread yeast, coriander and a hint of a citrus and fruit nature. The taste was the same as the aroma with, a bitter sweet finish and a pleasant after taste. A pleasant surprise for this hefe.

A: single finger head. Murky yellow body. No lace to speak of.

S: lemon custard sweet aroma.

T: citrus, mostly lemon. A subtle spicy flavor.

M: light body. Medium to high carbonation.

Overall: a nice hefe actually. More sweet lemon than sour lemon taste. Very drinkable and one of the better offerings at this location.

A - Pours with a small head of white foam, that settles quickly and leaves decent lace. Standard hazy, golden body.

S - Spicy, light clove and a slight tartness. Kind of reminds me of Tucher.

T - Spicy wheat up front with a little bit of banana. Some coriander character and more wheat tartness in the middle and light bitterness to balance in the finish.

M - Medium body, moderately high carbonation, and a balanced finish.

D - Not bad, but kind of bland. A pretty standard brewpub hefe, really not on the same level as the real thing.
