Poured 12 oz. bottle into Pilsner glass. Half inch head that dilsoved in about half a minute.
No lacing at all. Beer was underwhelming. No date on bottle. Maybe I bought a bad bottle but I was not impressed. I do enjoy German brewed Hefeweizen beers but the one that I had was not indicative of the high ratings that this brand received here.

Sizeable head initially, but it settles quickly with very large bubbles. It finishes with rim bubbles. A few spots on the glass. The color is dirty gold with a definitive cloudiness.

Soft and wheaty aroma. Light sour notes. Even lighter banana esters.

The carbonation is appropriately high but the body is uncharacteristically watery. The flavor mimics the smell with wheat being strongest and banana overtones. I do get a very small touch of sourness in the swallow. The aftertaste is short but traditional.

Hazy orange yellow with oodles of foam.

Big clove and banana smell. Yeah, wheat too.

Cloves, banana, wheat with some lemon.

Medium body with lively carbonation.

Excellent example of the style!

Poored a nice 3 finger head that kept a great lace through the whole beer. Color was a cloudy tan. Smell was of banana yeast and german hops. The taste is not over powered by fruit but more of a crisp hefe with a light medium body. Overall a kick ass hefey from a rad brewery.

Appearance - Wow - pours a quick 3 fingers of very active eggshell foam, you can hear it fizzing, very active carb rises through a gorgeous opaque golden beige body, however the head dwindles to a solid collar in a few minutes, with little to no lacing at the end of the session (this is the only negative in an otherwise gorgeous hefe)

Smell - pretty nice nose of wheat and yeast, like fresh baked bread, light banana, very subtle hint of nutmeg and clove

Taste - starts with wheat and yeast and a huge banana nose, quickly joined by mild peach and dried apricot, at the back of the tongue begins mild nutmeg, finishing with mild clove, white pepper and under-ripe banana pith.

Mouthfeel - almost medium, some of the perceived weight coming from complexity of flavor, carb is on the higher side, having tiny fine bubbles reminiscent of champagne that provide just enough scrub to allow a pleasantly spiced dry finish.

Overall - An excellent hefeweizen, wonderful complexity, and a wonderful balance of complex flavors make this one a must try. This particular hefe seems to be influenced by a particularly "devilish" strong belgian ale, as if you took 4 parts excellent hefe, to one part Duvel. Great sessionability at 4.2%. If you see this one, give it a try.

Poured on tap at Kramarczuk's Sausage Company in Minneapolis.

Golden pale body, not that cloudy but with a solid opaque body color. Creamy classic white top presented if a bit tiny, with light elevating streams of carbonation just barely. Real nice looking hefe.

Real clean aroma on the nose. Classic fruity esters but stays away from pungent fruit and stinky sweet banana so much. Has a sense of lager like crisp and light body, with a chewy malt smell and nice hints of small fruit orange to stone peach character.

Excellent palate. Big fruit flavor in the mid palate and almost breakfast warmth of orange. Light bodied but a great almost German pilsner dough quality particularly on the finish. Aftertaste of really nice bread finish and lager like crispness which is quite surprising.

A really neat tasting Hefe with some neat mix of different German style characters. Great solid brew.

Old school hefe, plenty of cloves, band-aids, & green banana peel. Fairly fluffy mouthfeel to it. Drinks great in the heat. Lovely nose that matched the flavors to a tee, plus a little wheattynes
