A: Hazy light orange color, 1/2 inch white head, suspended yeast floating around, good lacing
S: Bandaid, slight banana, and clove
T: Sweetness up front, I get that malty breadiness, bandaid and clove come through, ends with a sweet aftertaste
M: Light to medium
O: A good representation of the style, not as good as some other hefeweizens that Ive had but definitely a solid beer.

Pours a foggy, hazy orange with two fingers of white foam. Foam is dense and hearty and retains well. Aroma is orange, clove, yeast, and earthy, bread malts. Flavor profile is clove, yeast, a little citrus, and bread malts. Lovely smoothness. Mouth feel is medium-thick with a velvety, smooth texture. Overall, a great and smooth hefeweizen! Very refreshing.

Served in a 12oz snifter from a 11.2oz bottle.

From the fass, it pours a hazy amber with a lovely thick weiss bier head. Pleasant scent of banana, etc as it is a classic bavarian weissbier. Easy to drink, perfect for a summer's afternoon and not so bad on April first, either!
