Poured from a 16 oz can into a 14 oz "pint" glass. Pours a semi hazy orange with very little head. Smells of wheat and orange. Tastes of orange and wheat with undertones of other citrus. Beer is carbonated perfectly and for its light body and it is very sessionable. Overall, a pretty good beer.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Poured from a 16oz can into a pint glass

A: Pours a hazy golden-straw color. This is a foamy white head of about one finger which has decent retention before fading to a ring of foam.

S: A mild but enjoyable aroma. Lightly toasted malt melds with a somewhat fruity fermentation profile. Overall fairly sweet, with notes of caramel.

T: The first thing I pick up is the sweet and light toasty malt flavors. This is quickly joined by a light, noble hop flavor which provides just a touch of bitter grass. The fruity fermentation flavors and yeast become prominent in the mid-palate, with notes of phenolic banana. Clove joins the flavors in the moderate length finish.

M: Fairly thin and slightly watery, but this works with the medium-high carbonation. Fairly crisp and easy to drink.

O: Pretty good beer. Some phenolic Belgian flavors in a beer that is overall easier drinking that your standard Hefeweizen.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

eyes...
(although at this first moment I am enjoying the audible sizzle...)
bright white head fizzles into nothingness in a matter of moments, mostly clear with a hue of dark straw, very active carbonation rises up even though there is no head, on par for the style matey

nose...
big bready dry banana (yeah, all that and a bag of plantain chips), nice fruity esters and some bubble gum snap, wheat driven funkish notes that smack of euro tradition.. brooklyn ? nice!

taste etc...
as refreshing as a great soft drink... except better, lemony notes really tease the mouth, the carbonation makes this so easy to drink, the sensations are all at once here, a mouthful of all the flavors you would and should expect, the nose is strong but the flavors of wheat and banana are in balance here, the tinge of sourness really is just making this an all day sucker, this is very refreshing and will be in my go to box this spring/summer for sure.

verdict?
drinks a bit lighter than some straight up weiss beers, so a better option for a pool party etc.
this is very tasty but remains really light and drinkable.
the can is convenient... and a hit in this household this fine evening

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Poured from the can a deep clear gold with two fingers of frothy off-white head. A good amount of sticky lacing left behind.

Very sweet aroma of banana, geen apple, tropical fruit, cloves, and grainy malts.

The taste was tart with fresh-squeezed lemon upfront. Light amounts of wheat and green apple followed. The tartness lingered through the finish.

Medium bodied and quite dry with a moderate carbonation.

I liked the combination of tartness and wheat. Very interesting, for sure.
