Reviewed while listening to Queen's greatest hits.
A - Pours a pleasant hazy golden with a big foamy head. Looks like a hefeweizen should. Appears well carbonated, a myriad of bubbles are rising in my glass. "Under Pressure"
S - Smells sweet and wheaty. Very slight banana and yeast aroma.
T - Extremely refreshing. A little on the light side, flavorwise. Not too many typical hefeweizen banana/clove overtones. Still, it's quite tasty. I think I would like their Dunkel. The after taste is reminiscent of my first sniff of the beer's aroma. "Killer Queen"
M - Mouthfeel is pretty light and subtle. Definitely smooth. "Fat Bottomed Girls"
O - I wasn't disappointed... although I was craving some stronger weizen smell/flavor, which leads me to believe I should try their dunkelweizen. This beer is highly drinkable, tasty, and pretty to look at. Can't really note any negatives, other than the fact that I would have like a stronger flavor experience. That doesn't mean this isn't a fine example of a hefeweizen. "Bicycle Song"
This whole beer/Queen synergy reminds me of a song from The Simpsons:
"When I was seventeen, I drank some very good beer
I drank some very good beer I purchased with a fake ID
My name was Brian McGee
I stayed up listening to Queen
When I was seventeen"
(I'm not really 17)

Pours an opaque yellow. Tall, white head.
Smell is banana and clove.
The flavor is the same as the aroma. Bananas and cloves up front.
Typical hefeweizen mouthfeel
It has the makings of a great hefe but it falls a little short. The flavors are good but too subdued.
