look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance is dull and slightly foggy, but it's a wheat beer. Crazy head retention

Smells like whipped cream. Lots of banana. So sweet, it's creepy.

The taste is unique, but isn't very 'beer' ish. Yeah. I know it's a legit beer company, but this beer is weird. The finish is a bit like a bud light. Oh well.

The mouthfeel is smooth and a bit like a liquid pudding. Lots of fizz.

Overall, it's interesting, but I wouldn't recommend it. bottle

Serving type: on-tap

4/5  rDev -1.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from a 500mL bottle into a snifter. Bottle is dated July 2012.

A: Cloudy honey/amber color. It's got a nice, white 2 finger head. Good retention and lacing.

S: Banana, malt and cloves. The banana is incredibly pronounced.

T: Immediately there is lots of fruity sweetness. It gives way to some spices, cloves and coriander. There's a bit of some malt flavors throughout.

M: Relatively big bodied thanks to wheat. Well carbonated.

A very good, classic hefeweizen.

Serving type: bottle

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Bottle poured into a pint glass.

This beer poured a hazy yellow/orange. The head lingered for a while and then dissipated. The aroma was mildly fruity (banana) with a baselayer of wheat. The flavor was mild banana and cloves with a nice slick feel in the mouth and tongue due to the wheat. The carbonation was a bit high and stinging. Not a bad beer at all especially considering one that is highly available in tons of places.
