Poured a cloudy honey brown with nearly an inch thick, fluffy head and very impressive lacing. Spicy nose, with notes of banana and avocado; light bodied with clean finish. I found this to be a very light drinkable hefeweizen which I would serve to guests.

Cloudy golden color. Light head. Bitter. Another taste. Bitter. Skunky brew maybe? I don't expect a hefe to be bitter. Spicy and banana. Too many good hefes in Germany to drink this.

Pours light and a little cloudy. Has a large white head that lasts throughout. Smells very weak, just a little wheat and banana smell with a hint of a floral scent. Taste follows the nose, and it drinks very smooth and weak. Overall good beer, but not a top.

Pours a hazy light honey color, really active (too much) with three+ fingers of solid, fluffy, beige mousse that sticks around well and leaves a lot of even lacing. The aroma and flavor are both have a rich wheat body with a melange of clove, banana and vanilla. The flavor is a little lighter, crisper, and less "full" but is, likewise, a textbook hefeweizen: smooth spiced bread dough flavor with a hint of a hint of tartness and a mellow, drinkable, quenching character. Medium body, medium carbonation, very drinkable. This is a decent hefe. Not my favorite, but not bad at all. Would have again.
