On par head retention with a clouded golden colour, smooth mouth feel with a creamy medium body. Big banana fruitiness aroma with some clove in the back. Yeast and fresh wheat malt on the nose also. Rounded fruity flavour with a splash of clove spiciness. Twang of fermented wheat and grain, powdery yeast and a long grainy finish are the one-two punch of this beer. One of the better domestic hefes I have had a chance to try, this beer alone makes me want to go back.

As far as Hefe's go this is a must try. Lacks a little in the after taste but has a full body that is what you are looking for. Good mouthfeel and drinkability, not bad for and area that is not known for its micro brews.
Goes well with a pizza pie, not to heavy but full bodied enough to let you know that what you are drinking.

Cloudy, golden in color. Thick foamy head. Slighty lemony aroma with hint of sweet vanilla or honey. Taste is rich and inviting with full mouthfeel. Slightly sweet with hint of bananna or honey. A very slight bitter bite to it keeps you interested. Good as it warms, and great thirst quenching on a hot day like yesterday!!

One of the better domestic hefe I have tasted, good golden cloudy appearance, a little short on the aroma. But the taste and mouthfeel are there. I recommend any lover of hefe's to try this brew if in Savannah............CHEERS
