Pours golden with a creamy white head that becomes wispy. Some lacing sticks.

The smell is of light banana/clove and bubblegum.

The taste of banana/clove is mild. The bubblegum makes it a bit too sweet, though there is a balancing wheat tang.

It is appropriately light-bodied. A bit too sweet, but rather refreshing.

It is a hefeweiss with bubblegum added. It is a bit too sweet for me, yet, as mentioned, has a refreshing quality to it. Worth a try at Summerfest (its only availability).
