Poured a golden straw yellow with a two finger head that's quite impressive. Lacing to boot.

Very aromatic banana and clove fragrances.

Spritzy banana balanced with mild spices such as clove and pepper. Coriander is interwoven throughout and kind of ties everything together.

Very smooth mouthfeel, low carbonation with a tingle of spice on the palate.

Overall has great sessionability if you can get past the 7.2% abv. Very easy drinking and will look forward to having again sometime.

Poured from a bottle into a duvel tulip glass.

A: A cloudy hazy dark gold color with a one finger white fluffy head. Nice glass lacing.

S: Yeasty with light fruit smells and some bready malts.

T: Fruit flavors pop with banana and citrus and some drying wheat. The yeasty clove flavor comes right behind to mix with the fruit along with some bready malt. A bit of sweetness is detected, but not overly so. Finish is yeasty with some sweetness. Nice beer.

M: Medium, smooth and no hints of alcohol.

D: High, really good beer that one can have a few of. Be careful though, abv will hit you hard.

Overall a real nice German style Hefe that I really enjoyed. Good beer, wish I could get it here in PA as I got this one as an extra in a trade.

A: Very hazy copper orange gold

S: Big ass clove, wheat, and spice aroma.

T: Cloves, spices, wheat, a bit of hop in the very very back

M: Creamy, smooth, a bit thick for a wheat

O: An interesting rendition of a higher abv wheat. Not quite as good as Oberon though
