8/28....pours darker gold, touch of foam, white ring with bubbles. Light wheat nose, faint. Wheat filled flavor, light citrus. Banana flavor taste. Simple and tasty, for a somewhat routine hefe.

An underwhelming hefe weizen. Coming from a fan of the style, I was hoping for more, but nevertheless Wagner gives us a decent, summer beer, which, if you don't try and compare it to other examples of the style, is serviceable enough in its own right and quite quaffable.

Head is thin and wispy, dissipates quickly. A rich amber color with a spicy banana bread aroma. The cinnamon and clove aromas dominate with just a hint of banana Very spicy on the palate with lots of Xmas spices. Also shows the classic hefe lemon sourness. The finish is quite dry and moderately astringent so it finishes clean and dry. The clove lingers on and on though. The spiciness may not suit everyone, but I like it.
