Modest head which surprisingly little lace. The color is light amber with a mild haze.

True to form, the smell of banana comes out first. I also get malted wheat and light yeast.

The flavor features all of the aromatics along with a peppery bite in the swallow. Decently long aftertaste. Appropriate body with an elevated carbonation level.

Quick Take: Nice opaque straw color with a subtle splotch of banana, along with some clove that disappears in the aftertaste. It is unusually crisp for a hefeweizen, with a clear, refreshing mouthfeel. Light Italian bread aroma, also very mild lemon. This is a solid above average hefeweizen, although I highly recommend Karl Strauss’ Hefeweizen and La Cumbre Brewing’s A Slice of Hefen. Those two beers are a benchmark for hefeweizens outside of Germany!

A: The beer is very hazy yellow in color and has a moderate to high amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a two finger high white head that quickly faded away, leaving only some small patches of bubbles on the surface and a narrow collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of bananas and bubble gum are present in the nose.
T: The taste follows the smell, having flavors of bananas and bubble gum along with additional notes of cloves and wheat towards the finish.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer tastes OK, but it could use a lot of work with head retention.

Serving type: can

Looks like a typical beer of the style, cloudy straw color with a white head. It loses a few points for the head dissipating so quickly, would like to see it last a bit longer.

The smell reminds me a bit of banana bread, banana with spice.

The taste is a bit like the smell, in that it reminds me of banana bread. There's wheat, banana, clove, and a hint of citrus.

Has a nice lively mouth feel to it, the carbonation really helps the feel.

A nice beer, not world class, but well worth trying. Hard to screw up this style, and this is a pretty solid example.

Poor head retention. Appropriate color. Smells of banana and clove and mild grains. Flavor is subdued yet spot on with an emphasis on wheat. Finishes clean and dry. Very good summer beer.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Pours hazy and goldenstraw colored; two fingers of head fritter away in 10 seconds; minimal lacing

Smell: Wheat bread, banana, vanilla and clove

Taste: Banana bread forward, with developing vanilla and clove tones, through the middle; nicely balanced, in the finish

Mouthfeel: Light to medium body with moderate carbonation; lacks the Germanic mouthfeel

Overall: Destihl has got the taste down; the body needs work, however
