Pours a bit more bright than other hefes. Big, foamy, bubbly head that is gone within minutes. Thing, watery lacing that dissipates rather quickly. The bright color brings me back to the grossness of that fruity pebble Leinenkugel brew, but aside from that there's nothing much wrong with the hue. Just different. The head and lacing is sorely lacking for a hefeweizen, though.
Smells very yeasty, some sourness in the background and a hint of citrus.
There's a really strong tart, sour taste presented by the lemony citrus in this brew. It dominates most of the taste. Let me make it clear that tart citrus is not at all my thing. That being said, I can recognize the value of this brew but it's not one of my favorites.
There's a bit of overcarbonation here but nothing too drastic. Mouth feel is pretty standard, medium-bodied hefe.
This one is worth trying but not all that great.

pale yellow in color right from the can, with a short lived almost clear head, slight haze. I don't smell any of the traditional elements of hefe yeast, this is more of a Berliner Weiss to me, although lacking tartness and acidity, not real authentic at all. still its got some floral hops, some fruity notes of melon and lemon, and a super light wheat malt complexion that makes it a nice easy drinker in summer time. the wheat malt is almost too light, lacking a ton of flavor, but the interesting hop profile is allowed to stand out as a result, which might be a happy accident, but it works for me. good carbonation and plenty drinkable at under 5% abv. this is nowhere near the best stuff coming out of butternuts, but it does have some redeeming qualities, especially in hot weather. also good as a potential craft intro beer, as its flavors are mild and approachable to most.
