500 mL bottle at 42 degrees into a Franziskaner Weizen glass.

A: It pours a cloudy golden color with a two-finger head egg shell white head that holds as a lovely crown on top with great lacing.

S: Banana, lemon, grassiness, cloves, and peppery yeast. There are not many beers that smell better than a good Hefeweizen.

T: Banana, juicy lemon, light berry flavors, grass, heavy cloves, and some light breadiness late.

M: This has a medium-light body with above-average carbonation and a clean finish.

D: This is up there with the best Hefeweizens. I re-visit it often and will continue to do so.

Pours a cloudy lemon juice color with a massive white head. The head seemed a tad unstable as far as hefeweizens go. Big nose of clove spiciness and big, green, unripe bananas. Well, as far as taste goes, it doesn't really tread upon new ground for a hefeweizen. It makes up for that in its peculiar way. As soon as I take the sip, it seems very muddy and subdued. Seconds later, the flavors seem to get brighter. I don't know how to explain it. It's as if there's a dimmer switch being turned brighter and brighter after the beer goes over my tongue. This is a pretty light hefeweizen, which isn't necessarily bad, but I tend to associate hefeweizen with a fuller, fluffier mouthfeel. As far as drinkability goes, this is fantastic. I'd imagine this being way better on a hot day than typical lawnmower beers.
