Poured into a weizen glass. Cloudy, honey color with a sizable head that had excellant retention before settling to a thick cap. Aroma is what is to be expected for the style. A mixture of wheat malt, banana, and cloves. Good but does not really excite me. The flavor is a good example from a German brewer but it lacks the sparkle to set it into the highest levels. Not quite as tangy as I was led to believe, but more straight up mild wheat, bananas, and cloves. Nicely balanced. The body is good as well. I would of liked a little more pep from the carbonation, but it does offer a smooth texture. A good example but I was the slightest let down by the beer. Still better than 90% of American hefeweizens.

Poured from a 22 oz bottle into a sniffer. Purchased at nikkis liquors in north providence ri:

A: pours a slightly hazy amber with a huge white head that leaves no lacing

T : give Belgian spices. Cloves and wheat, unripe bananas. Delicious and traditional.

M- medium carbonation and mouthfeel. Good.

I liked this one. Traditional Belgian wheat beer. Pick it up it you can.

This beer pours a cloudy bright yellowish body with a thick white head.

Nose has a sweet yeasty smell. Thick wheat, malt, phenols, yeast, bananas, a touch of spice, a little bit of apple peer and even lime peel.

Light to medium bodied with a very smooth with an immediate, almost macro like, wheat flavor to it. Yeast, wheat and believe it or not, that classic German pilsner type earthy malt and yeast quality. Lemon juice, touches of grapefruit juice, banana peel, apples and hints of some numbing spice. A very mild bitterness that is all almost non existent.

Interesting wheat beer. The malt or yeast quality has this classic German Pilsner type taste that makes it almost even more drinkable for a refreshing summer brew.
