2.58/5 rDev -20.4%
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.

Poured into a Celebrator pokal. Pours a hazy medium caramel amber with a thin white head. Aroma of wheat, light citrus and banana. Flavor is sweet fruit emphasizing banana flavors, clove with light wheat, finishing with light clove and slight hop bitterness. Light to medium bodied with active carbonation. All the hefeweizen flavors are here, but almost opposite of a well balanced beer in that style. The spicing and fruit flavors are dominant with the wheat taking a far back seat. Some of the estery banana flavor seems almost artificial. An adequate, but unbalanced attempt at a hefeweizen. With the traditional classics in this style so readily available and inexpensive, it seems odd to even try to produce a modest example. It went well with lunch, but not a repeat beer.

Darker than most and lacking the certain depth and softness that marks the style, this beer by contrast is a moderately hazed burnished gold-copper. The head, tinted yellow, is spritzy and falls apart but does leave rings at the edges that drop spotting on the glass.
Clove is prominent on the nose with less accessible notes of overripe banana and dusty earth. It's light and more spicy than anything. While not particularly aromatic or flavorful, and a little heavy-handed for the style, it's very apparent that no adjuncts are used (claims I've heard that seem to evidence bias) and that Belgian yeast was used.
The feel is interesting and seems to be an oxymoron in itself in that it's effervescent while being more medium- than light-bodied. Still, it's a bit too thick without the depth or the rolling softness that marks mastery of the style. It has a crisp bite, which seems to be the focus.

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.

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

Picked up at the Beer Box in Playa del Carmen. Tasted 25 December 2013, reviewed from notes.
Pours a medium-dark, late summer wheat yellow. Half a finger of white head, okay retention and lacing. For a hefe, oddly dark and not so nice on the eyes.
Smell is super yeast. A little bit of wheat, a little bit of spice. It's a buoyant yeast smell, kinda like banana, or the essence of banana-like fruits.
Taste is a mellow spice, like cloves, round and warm with no zip. Again, pretty darn yeasty with only a small amount of wheat.
Feel is a little on the flat side, feels kinda rounded and expansive. Could use some more carbonation.
A passable hefeweizen. I probably wouldn't pick it over the stellar ones I can get in my area of the midwest, but it's not bad.

Poured from a brown 11.2 oz. bottle. Has a dark golden color with a 1 inch head. Smell has some banana and wheat elements to it. Taste is banana, spice, some wheat, refreshing and disappearing quick. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a solid beer.
