3.55/5  rDev -3.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

I picked up a couple bottles of these light ("hell") hefes at the Binny's store in Bloomingdale, IL for $2.99 each. 1 pint 0.9oz brown bottles with no freshness date and no other information about the beer on the label.

Careful with the pour here as I got 90% of the glass to fill with white foam even with a tilted 45 degree angle pour. After the head went down (which took a few minutes), the beer revealed itself to be a hazy straw yellow color and it left plenty of nice lacing on the glass with each sip.

The typical banana/clove aroma was there, but it was mild compared to most hefes I've tried. Also picking up the wheat smell and some bready yeast.

Big under-ripe (almost green) banana flavor, along with some clove, white pepper, and lemony citrus taste. You can taste the wheat as well. The biggest disappointment is that all these flavors don't last very long. You taste them for a few seconds and then - poof - they're gone. No lingering aftertaste at all.

Light to medium bodied with low carbonation.

It's alright, but not good enough to get the good or exceptional rating from me.

This pours a cloudy, golden yellow color with a thick, foamy head. The aroma is full of wheat, coriander, and yeast. The flavor is full and delicious with orange and wheat tones. The texture is smooth and filling for a lighter wheat beer. This has to be one of the best beers for its style.

look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

500ml bottle, best before 12/2013

A- Usual hefeweizen look: cloudy, maybe a little more on the darker/orange side than usual. Nice dense white head, good persistence and lacing

S- Malt sweetness, a hint of citrus, slight clove. Soft, quite weak

T- Soft and sweet bready malts, lemon, hints of banana. Classic touch of phenolic feel, with the usual hint of clove. Simple and straightforward classic hefe

M- Very nice mouthfeel, soft as it should be, body and carbonation in perfect average check for the style

O- Enjoyable and refreshing hefe, expecially worth in the summer. Just nothing special

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

appearance: usual cloudy mysticism of the good old Hefe. Little bit darker than the usual, but loving it

smell: distinct bananas you can not miss, almost a banana juice smell, slight edge of the hops for good measure

taste: hop bight up front then the good old rich goodness of the classic hefe. a malty pleasure for the tongue

mouthfeel: bit of a weaker mouth feel but not bad. keeps you sipping. good hot day brew

overall: A pleasant surprise I really enjoy. Happy to be having this brew and all it contains. A good brew worthy of another sample
