Bottle from Frankfurt.

A - Towering, creamy white cap of foam. Stellar retention and lace. Hazy, opaque pear juice body. Straight hefe.

S - Dry bread, creamsicle, orange zest, banana peel.

T - Big, sweet wheat note right up front. Mango, bread crust, honey, banana bread. A nice long finish that really clings to your palate.

M - Medium body. Light lemon brightness. Thick backend.

O - A solid hefe with great smoothness.

Picked up a single at EuroMarket in Astoria for $2. It poured a murky amber with a short white head. Mmm, there's a nice juicy aroma and flavor with a mix of banana and orange peel. There's a mild spice and smooth bready undertone. The clove is mild and pleasant, but the flavors seems to drop out toward the finish. You might say it's too clean for a hefe, but I like it. The banana notes ar especially tasty without going over the top or dominating the beer. Give this a try.

On draft at The Lark, East Northport, NY.

Poured a hazy bright orange hue with a three finger frothy white head. There was good retention and lacing.

The smell featured mild esters and a touch adjunct like sweetness.

The taste consisted of a subtle wheat spice and touch of esters.

The mouthfeel was toward the thinner side of the style with dome chewiness.

Overall a serviceable hefe.

-A very sessionable hefeweizen if drank cold
-Subdued banana and clove compared to others of this style
-As it warms, some metallic harshness comes though
-Maybe fermented a little too cold (or fermented with a strain that throws off too few phenols) for my liking
