First off this is the first beer I have EVER boughtin Europe with a twist cap. Don't start down this road...it leads to the dark side. Pours a very very cloudy orange color, there was a ton of yeast and other solids in the bottle too. Decent size fluffy white head that hangs out as a fine scum of top of the beer. Intense banana smell with a little spicieness underneath, pretty standard hefe. The taste is very very fruity, banana fruity of course. It is a pretty sweet beer but highly carbonated which saves it a little. This is everything I don't like about a hefeweizen, very strong banana flavor backed up with a big wheat malt sweetness. This beer does taste very crisp and fresh, especially ice cold as I am drinking it. Would like to grab the original and compare. If you love this about hefes then you are going to like this beer. I know this is a good beer for the style, but not up my alley.
