3.23/5  rDev -5%
look: 3 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

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.

Pretty decent beer.

A-Pours cloudy golden yellow with a white head that hangs around for a while

Smell-Smells spicy and citrusy

Taste-Spicy up front. CLove and coriander and a hint of citrus.

MF-Not really worth noting.

O-I thought it was a decent beer over all. Good flavor and it a nice beer to sip on a hot day.

3/5  rDev -11.8%
look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.75

Appearance: Bright lively yellow that is not transparent. poured into a Carlsberg 0.4L glass yielded a nice 2 inch head that quickly dissipated.

Smell: Nose is bright and sharp with the scent of yeast

Taste: Initially sweet then sharp sourness, but not as sour and traditional sour. Lingering malty character and no essence of hops to guess about.

Mouthfeel: not very existant.

Overall: Summery but sour. Makes my stomach a bit upset/unpleasant. wouldn't buy a 6 pack but nice to have as part of the 12 can variety pack by Butternuts.

look: 2 | smell: 2.25 | taste: 2 | feel: 2 | overall: 2.25

Appearance: Golden and hazy and a head around one inch high that is lightly foamy.

Aroma: Light grassy, clove, banana a little bit of spice in the back end.

Taste: Very light bodied, semi crisp mouthfeel, banana, light clove, grassy.

Notes: Not too much to this one it's rather lighter than most Hefeweizens decently drinkable could be good on a hot day but that's about it. Cheers.
