Easily the best American Hefeweizen I've ever tried. Crisp and clean, floral with banana and a lot of wheat. So drinkable, only wish I could have this on the regular.

Pale Amber in color with about 1/2" head that settles to 1/8". A bit cloudy and minor lacing.

Smell is cloves, floral, and wheat.

Taste is cloves, banana, minor sweetness, and some breadiness and citrus.

Mouthful is medium to light and creamy with high carbonation.

Wow, this is a spot on by the book hefewizen. Well balanced, easily drinkable, and delicious. Seek this out.

I am normally not a Hefe fan but this one lived up to the hype! Lots of banana notes on the nose and a refreshing beer all around. This would be a solid summer beer.

Perfect summer beer. Light and crisp, but certainly not thin. Great banana and clove flavor to it that just makes we want to sit in the backyard with friends.

Having recently returned from Germany and being a lover of hefeweizens, I was absolutely blown away with how great this beer is. I am certain there is no better brewed in the USA. World Class!

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.
