11.2 ounce twist-off bottle - Taco Mac in Kennesaw, Georgia.

Best Before: 080914.

Appearance: Lightly hazed, golden-orange body with a small, very thin, white head barely kept alive by steady streams of soda-like bubbles.

Smell: Somewhat sweet-smelling corn-based cereal with the merest aromatic mention of 'nana and lemon. Ay Dios Mio!!

Taste: Sweet start, with what seems like some corn slide into the recipe for a taste of corn syrup glazed grains. Very faintly bready. Near-dead notes of citrus, banana. No appreciable hop character. Then, it's back to the sugariness until the lightly fizzy finish. An embarrassing effort.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium-plus carbonation.

Overall: Beloved? Geez, no. Immortal? Well, it will live on in my mind as a truly ghastly hefe until the end of my days.

Pours crystal clear gold amber color with bubbles racing up the beer to a big foamy 2 finger white head that was full of bubbles and faded slowly, leaving OK lacing. The second swirl of the brew kicked up the yeast which looked like crap floating in a toilet after it poured in.

Smells corn like in a macro lager, caramel, grains, light yeast and cardboard; not what I expected since it looked good, this smells like a Bud or Corona with extra yeast in it and was very disappointing.

Tastes like it smells with corn and malt up front like in a macro lager, light caramel, grains, yeast/cardboard, banana and some other fruit; not as bad as the nose, but this lacked that hefeweizen flavor that I was hoping for. Tastes basically like half a Bud or Corona was poured into a glass with a half a Blue Moon. It has some sweetness, but not enough to make it good.

Mouthfeel is light and on the crisp side, with mild fizzy carbonation and a slightly sweet aftertaste that is grainy with clove trailing off and finishes almost dry.

Great looking artwork and cap, it would be easy to drink if it tasted better but this formula needs help or the brew needs better quality hops and yeast added as it's not that good.

The aroma includes honey and crayons with just a touch of grape-like fruitiness. The off-white head is reluctant to form, and the body is cloudy and deep gold. The sweetness in the flavor is only vaguely banana-like; there is a dull tartness backed by some hop bitterness and just a little spiciness. It has a medium body with crispness from the moderate carbonation.

Perfectly drinkable but not very good overall. The aroma is especially unimpressive, while the flavor is sweet but constantly competes with a weird, crayon-like tartness.

12 ounce bottle

Pours dull and hazy light tangarine, under a moderate off white head.

Super ripe bananas upon the sniff.

More over ripe bananas all over this. Over the top ripeness, makes this go over to the kinda unpleasant side. Sort of an acrid and off putting bitterness in the finish.

One and done here and thankfully I purchased just this singe bottle

330ml bottle, still with the creepy Dio de Los Muertos imagery, and without much information on the beer herein beyond the name.

This beer pours a hazy, medium golden amber colour, with a teeming tower of puffy, loosely foamy, and weakly bubbly ecru head, which leaves some random landfall lace around the glass as it readily subsides.

It smells of mildly acrid yeast, musty banana chips, bready pale and spicy wheat malt, a further strangely sinful (not in the pleasant way) corn grist astringency, faint and duly muddled savoury spice, and perhaps the suggestion of rubber-booted citrus. The taste is more grainy and semi-sweet wheat malt, a tag-a-long sugary corn character, overripe applesauce, pureed bruised bananas, ethereal clove/coriander spice, a certain hole where I was expecting some table pepper, and a bit of dank wet cardboard.

The bubbles are pretty low-key, and hardly even noticeable at times, the body a decent medium weight, and smooth, I suppose, with a growing clamminess as it warms. It finishes on the sweet side, the various perceived malts employed here running the table, as it were.

While not particularly egregious in its flaws, they are indeed there for all (ok, maybe not all) to see, smell, and taste. Way too sugary (at times from dubious sources), and with a yeastiness that seems to come and go at will - control, people! Anyways, closer to the purported base style than the others from this brewing concern that I've yet tried, which is faint praise, I'm afraid.
