A pale, refreshing German wheat beer with high carbonation, dry finish, a fluffy mouthfeel, and a distinctive banana-and-clove yeast character.

Aroma: Moderate clove phenols and dominant fruity banana esters. The balance and intensity of the phenol and ester components are reasonably balanced and fairly prominent. A light to moderate wheat aroma (which might be perceived as bready or grainy) is present.

Appearance: Pale straw in color. A very thick, mousse long-lasting white head is characteristic. The high protein content of wheat impairs clarity in an unfiltered beer, although the level of haze is somewhat variable.

Flavor: Moderately strong banana and lighter clove flavor. The balance and intensity of the phenol and ester components are reasonably balanced and fairly prominent. The soft, somewhat bready or grainy flavor of wheat is complementary, as is a slightly grainy-sweet malt character. Hop flavor is very low to none, and hop bitterness is very low. Well-rounded, flavorful palate with a relatively dry finish. The perception of sweetness is more due to the absence of hop bitterness than actual residual sweetness.

Mouthfeel: Medium-light to medium body. Suspended yeast may increase the perception of body. The texture of wheat imparts the sensation of a fluffy, creamy fullness that may progress to a light, spritzy finish aided by high carbonation. Always effervescent.
