Poured into a twelve ounce weizen glass from the bottle.
Color is clear straw gold, meaning they have partially filtered this beer. More of a kristalweizen. Small white head.
Smell: Not that impressive. Not the same level of bananas, but clove, fresh wheat, sugar. It passes as a hefe, but barely.
Taste: Much better. Has a smooth, creamy taste, with a small amount of banana, some clove, minimal citrus, and a good portion of wheat malt. The yeast is filtered out of this brew, so realistically it would and could be far better with that left in.
Mouthfeel: Not nearly as creamy as German hefes. Possibly due to the filtration. Without the filtration, this beer would earn far higher marks - to be honest, it's actually a Kristalweizen.
Serving type: bottle

Had this on tap at the Syracuse location in Destiny USA. A big, beautiful, 20 ounce glass emblazoned with the word "HEFEWEIZEN" shows up, and delivers. This brew is an excellent example of the style, and went perfectly with the flat steak I ordered.
Serving type: on-tap
