Sour apples and tart hard candy on the nose. I don't think it's supposed to smell like this.

Straw-yellow in color with a crisp BIG head at first but the head completely disappears very quickly and leaves no lacing.

Again with sour apples, very tart, almost puckering. Tastes nothing like it should. It's super carbonated, and a light body. I'm guessing I got a bad bottle. I will review this again when it's fresh.

DATE REVIEWED: July 18, 2014... GLASSWARE: Weihenstaphaner weizen... OCCASION: beautiful camp day to a close...APPEARANCE: cloudy golden yellow body with generally large bubbles at the bottom of the glass; quickly flattening head--zero left behind, creating a bald brew... AROMA: banana and bubblegum--a yeast strain that is a bit clean for a hefe... some clove late... PALATE: crisp, reasonably medium-bodied; swift aftertaste; not really unfiltered... TASTE: yeasty banana, and yet not too flavorful; slightly acidic, but rather smooth overall, missing the rougher, more natural flavor profile of a hefe... OVERALL: refreshing on the deck at Friday 5 pm, yes--flavorful enough to distinguish itself or hold interest, no...enough to be a hefe, definitely not; the sampler hit on two of four (the IPA and pils) and struggles elsewhere...
