Classic hazy straw colored with a big head. For a hef this has the classic scent : banana clove spice with that wonderful yeast smell. A bit sweeter than I was expecting with the banana and yeast flavor extending through the finish. Creamy mouthfeel with less carbonation. This is a quality brew with a big nose and a bit less on the flavor.

Pours lightly hazy gold. Thick, medium, wet white head that lasts a while. Fading to lasting cap.

Smells orange peel, banana, clove, yeast funk and wheat.

Tastes citrus, light grassy, yeast and clove. Followed by banana and yeast funk. Finish is dry with yeasty linger. Medium body and creamy medium carbonation.

A: Poured into an Ayninger stein, so I honestly couldn't say, we'll say, it looks great
S: Wonderfully spicy nose, with something of a biscuity/malty quality here as well, banana and clove
T: spicy, lightly tart, with just the right amount of sweetness, some banana and clove, with what feels like the suggestion of mint, an excellent, well balanced hefeweizen
M: a tad dry, but full bodied
O: A perfectly exemplary hefeweizen, probably my second favorite hefe that I've had behind the Erdinger Weisse-Bräu

Poured from 11:2-ounce bottle into a fluted glass. Beautiful hazy yellow-orange in color, with a thick, brilliant white head. Typical phenolic character for the style. Pleasant aromas and flavors of clove and banana, with a hint of bubblegum and a little herbal spiciness. Medium bodied, with a crisp, dry finish and very little residual bitterness. This is one excellent beer, not to be missed.
