A: Pours a darker yellow bordering on orange with a quickly-dissipating white head.
S: Sweet malts with a bit of yeast, banana, and clove.
T/M: Wheat malts and a strong yeast taste; strong banana and almost artificial yeast flavoring. Medium body with large bubble carbonation led it to be entirely too filling.
D: I was a bit wary of drinking a hefeweizen out of a can at first, but this one actually didn't turn out to be too bad. Still, the over-carbonation and exaggerated flavor of this brew made me want my hefes bottled or on-tap, thankyouverymuch.

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.
