Enjoy by 5/28/14.

Pours a hazy light yellow with a foamy bone head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. No lacing on the drink down. Smell is of malt, wheat, caramel, banana, and spice aromas. Taste is much the same with banana and spice flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of spice bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is an above average beer with a nice smell, but the flavors aren't as good in my opinion.

look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3.25

12 oz. bottle poured into a hefeweizen glass.

Pours a light hazy straw color with one finger of lively white foam that quickly disappears with almost no retention or lacing. It actually smells pretty good. Faint banana, lemon, pale malts, and spicy yeast.

The mouthfeel is an immediate letdown. The carbonation seems only slightly light for the style, but it's a poor match for the ultra light body. The taste is quite good but a little tame. The banana, orange, lemon, clove and wheat cracker play nicely off one another with a crisp clean finish.

Mixed feelings on this one. If the carbonation and flavors were turned up a notch I think I would like it a lot. As it is, I could see this being a satisfactory choice on a hot day. I'd definitely drink it again, but won't go out of my way to find it.
