Hofbräu pours soft, hazy gold with a dense, white head. The expected clove and banana scents are mild, gently needling the tart wheat aroma as pleasant sweet orange suggestions perk up the bouquet. The swallow’s mellow; an expected stretch of wheat tartness and mild haylike dryness ease to a dusty finish with a hint of clove. While the smoothness and drinkability are appealing, a healthy smattering of banana and fruit ornaments would nudge it closer to the style and help brighten the experience. Overall, though, Hofbräu’s hefe is a simple, pleasant beer.
