A-Hazy, unfiltered look typical of hefe's. Deep yellow color with a creamy white head and decent retention.

S-Warm citrusy notes with a strong banana presence. I'm also sensing some warm cinnamon as well. Smells a lot like a saison.

T-Banana is very strong and it is layered nicely with the warm, subtle citrus fruits. The flavors do not last too long on the palate, however and it is very simple.

MF-Probably the best aspect of the beer. It is very smooth with a nice touch of carbonation.

O-A great hefeweizen. While not my favorite style, this one was well crafted. It's very simple. The tastes aren't layered complexly and the smells make their presence know. A great brew.

It comes in a bright yellow color like a Sunny D.

The taste is a bit too mellow and lacks depth. It has banana and warm citrus flavor. It is yeasty a bit, but it cleans off the tongue too fast. I want strong bolder flavors and more body, like the German wheats.

I would recommend going with the German wheats or Beglian wheats.

I LOVE this beer. I've always been a fan of Hefeweizens, and this one is now by far my favorite.

A- Poured as recommended into a hefe glass. Smooth pour with a bit of an orange tint. A small head left a nice lacing on the glass.

S- Wheat, apricot, and a general fruitiness. Subtle, but pleasant.

T- Wow! I cannot express how much I like the taste of this beer. Starts off with a banana and apricot frutiness, and continues into a slightly bitterer taste, which is well balanced. Finish is incredibly smooth and leaves a pleasant fruity taste in your mouth.

M- Light, not that carbonated. Finishes incredibly smoothly.

O- I loved it!
