A finely topped by white froth finger of foam, and quite cloudy gold colored, thickish loolking brew. Not a poster child, but hey it's hefe laden beer we are talking about.

Not the usual aroma, in a good way, clove is joined by other spice and some nice sweet tangy yeast flavor, and some hops in there too I do believe adding wonderful bitter backing to a scent that has elements of sourdough to it.

Not the usual hefe taste either, missing notably is the banana. Clove now has coriander and pepper to buddy up with in a sip that is just sweet grainy enough, just rounded yeasty enough, just herbal bitter enough. Palate gets accustomed quickly to a joyous flavor that is raw and delicious.

Very low carb., maybe a touch under for style, but to this palate it makes a beer that is carried stunningly well. Quite full bodied and viscous also, but refreshing, and finishes clean and drier than usual for style.

Excellent beer, I may have passed without trying for years, but today it beckoned convincingly from store fridge. Glad I got it, highly recommended.

500mL bottle into a hefe glass

A: Pours a hazy pale straw color with 1 fingers width of white head. Head dissipates down at a moderate rate, but leaves zero lacing.

S: Lots of clove and banana esters, wheat, fruity, awesome aroma.

T: The first flavors I get are citrus and wheat. Clove and banana are present but less so than in the aroma. A bit of spice.

M/D: Fuller body, carbonation on the heavier end which is appropriate, drinkability is average.

O: A far above average hefe. One of the standards of the style. Definitely worth a try, even if you arent a huge fan of the style.

The best hefe out there IMO. Beautiful in every way. Slightly more yellow than most hefes, and this is what I look for in Belgian witbiers as well. If you see it, buy it. It's like making out with a mutant angel born without teeth. Also excellent out of the bottle. I wish it came in 6 packs in my area. $3something a 500ml persuades me to buy $8.99 Weihenstephaner 6 packs instead.
