A classic German hefe, this pours a hazy light-gold color, with an immediate thick head that subsides fast but leaves decent lacing behind. The nose is light and subtle, with soft aromas of clean wheat, grass, green banana and lemon pith. The palate offers a bit more intensity, as flavors of tart lemon custard, orange, pepper, raw bread dough and sweet malt fill the medium-weight mouth. It's smooth and well balanced, with a slightly rich and creamy texture but a crisp, clean finish. Merchant du Vin.
