Pours a beautiful hazy light orange with a frothy white head that leaves droopy horizontal strips of lacing down the sides.

Smell leaves a lot to be desired. Primarily yeasty, but subdued, the most prominent "hefeweizen" smell is that of clove. Maybe a bit of banana as well. Somewhat soapy.

Taste is similarly underwhelming. Very light on flavor, with clove again being the most noticeable yeast characteristic. Lightly sweet at first, in a manner reminiscent of tangerines, the flavor eventually dries out a bit. Again, a somewhat off flavor is present. almost soapy.

The mouthfeel is right on. Light bodied and very clean. Effervescent carbonation that might be a touch too high.

Overall, a very easy drinking but uninteresting hefeweizen. Though it's been a while since I drank one, this reminds me quite a bit of widmer's hef.
