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.

3.23/5 rDev -5%
Appearance: Slightly hazy, straw-colored with a small, lasting head.
Smell: Citrus, a little bready, sharp spiciness.
Taste: Immediately tart with notes of citrus, bread, banana, and spice.
Mouthfeel: Very light in body, highly carbonated, fizzy.
Overall: A good, light, refreshing beer. It's certainly not special, but it is far from being bad. Might be too sour for some, especially those who are more use to a banana/clove focused German hefeweizen.
