Poured from a 16 oz. dated can: slightly hazy, golden orange with a sustained fluffy white head.
This one is quite aromatic with a strong and sweet banana aroma typical of an authentic German wheat.
The flavor has a solid yeasty and bready profile with very faint hints of clove and of course, the refreshing banana-like flavor. The bubble gum flavor is present but very subdued.
This has the mouthfeel of a nice German style wheat - medium bodied with very zesty carbonation with a somewhat tart aftertaste.
This was a good choice for an early hot August day. While it will not top the best German interpretations, it is very refreshing and has good complexity for the style. The low ABV makes this one sessionable.

Picked up a can of this yesterday from a local bottle shop, cracked it open and immediately smelled a strong urine odor along with rotten bananas, For some reason I went on to actually taste this abomination of beer, it was like Donkey Kong went on a banana binge and the gave me a golden shower the next morning. Putrid bananas and strong dark urine is all I can think of....but I looked at the bottom of the can once I was done muscling through this beer, since I dont believe in drain pours, and it was canned in July of 2013...7 months ago, I hope thats the problem. If not, I am seriously surprised that this crap came from 6 point
