    My current favorite. Brewer recently switched to brown bottles ... batches I'm still finding in original green bottles have much more distinct taste of cloves, which I prefer.

    Presentation: It was poured from a brown 16.9oz bottle into a weizen glass.

    Appearance: It pours very cloudy and has a wonderful orangey yellow golden color with a big creamy white head. The head has great retention and makes nice lacing.

    Smell: The aroma has earthy/fruity yeast character with notes of banana, clove and lemony citrus.

    Taste/Mouth feel: Its flavor has a smooth creamy malty wheat flavor with a big earthy yeast influence. There are notes of banana and clove with some light hints citrus and hops. It all finishes with dry dusty yeast and very mild hops with citrusy lemon flavors.
    Its carbonation is soft but active with a smooth and slightly slick texture in its medium body.

    Notes: Overall it's very refreshing and drinkable with all the wonderful flavors you expect in a good hefe-weizen.
