Poured a nice golden yellow from the can. Nice banana and clove nose. The beer itself is slightly sweet with a bit of banana peel bitterness and is light and crisp. Good stuff.

Doesn't get much better than this when it comes to a Hefe.

Golden pour with minimal head, lively carbonation. Smells of sweet grain, banana, clove, esters.

Complex taste, layers of sweetness, banana and grape, spicy clove and cinnamon, dry vanilla finish.

Crushable at ~5%, pairs great with a multitude of foods. Hands down the finest American Hefe on the market. Seek this out.

Poured from a 12oz can into a Speiglau Hefe glass.

Beautiful light golden yellow color with a thin lacy head.

Lot of esters on the nose. Spicy and fruity notes of bananas slightly grassy note.

Taste matches the aroma lots of banana and spice.

Truly excellent hefe.
