Pours a bright, hazy yellow-gold with minimal head and almost non-existent lacing. Aroma is heavy with banana-nut muffins and some sweet maltiness. Taste is full of banana, banana bread, some malt and yeast aromas. Nice, bold hefe and refreshing. Could drink many of these, its that good !

A thanks to the ruler of the canned beer kingdom, woodychandler, for this beer. Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a light golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is mild, some banana. Taste is wheat, banana, light clove, refreshing. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall a decent beer, a bit on the mild side.

Middle of the road, run of the mill, mediocre, etc. There really isn't much more to say than that. This represents the style, but just barely. Flavors are muted and there is nothing that makes this brew stand out or memorable. Tasted on tap in DC.

Would Drink Again: No
Would Purchase Again: No

Poured from a can into a weisse vase, the beer is a hazy, bright, straw yellow coloring with no head and a solid flow of carbonation bubbling throughout the body. Aromas of toasted bread, berry sweetness, nutmeg, cinnamon, clove, banana, and subtle orange highlights. Flavors are sweet banana bread forward, with a solid dose of clove spice, nutmeg, and candi sugar. Full bodied, with a crisp edge from the carbonation. The aftertaste is candied fruit, heavy on the banana. The finish is crisp, slightly sharp, with a fruity linger. Light and refreshing.

On draft, pours a hazy pale yellow with a light foamy head.

Nose is all hefe, very heavy on the bananas, wheat, a little dough and cloves. There is some grass, rustic notes, very earthy. The flavor is mostly banana, a little bit of spice and wheat. Some citrus, orange, coriander, lemon. The finish is crisp and floral, palate smacking. This is pretty good, refreshing, smooth. Hard to stand our in this style and this will get lost among all the other hefe's in the world.
